Young women and men from all social groups in Albania find attractive and gainful employment thanks to improved skills
Key Activities
The project is supporting the government to address this by reforming the vocational education and training (VET) system. Private sector will continue to play a bigger role in VET definition and provision. Reforming the VET system and targeting the employment situation of youth is a priority of the Albanian Government
Target groups
the public VET providers in Shkodra, Lezha, Tirana, Berat and Vlora, 10’000 VET students and 6’000 vocational trainees, including unemployed and underemployed rural and urban young women and men, persons not in employment or education and special needs group (students from rural families facing poverty and lack of access to services, urban families receiving state economic assistance, orphans, poor performers, Roma and disabled, returned migrants)
Young women and men have access to a performing, labour market-oriented education and training offer in sectors with growth potential. The private sector takes responsibility in the defini-tion, provision and financing of VET on provider level.
Expected results:
- Better and market-oriented VET provision
- The ratio of graduates that are (self-) employed after graduation increased from 49% to 60%.
- 10’000 young people have used improved VET and 6’000 youth used short term training.
- Drop out level decreased from 15% to 9%.
- The number of students in apprenticeships in-creased from 709 to 3’000, interns from 72 to 600.
- The number of companies co-financing VET pro-vision increased from 300 to 500, the number of companies offering apprenticeships increased from 300 to 420.
- 250 in-company mentors certified.
