Project objectives: In line with the commitment of the Republic of Serbia to join the European Union and the strategic framework defined in education and employment development strategies, the main objective of this project is the further improvement of the adult education system in order to diversify the offer of accredited market-relevant non-formal adult education programmes, increase relevance and transparency of educational offer, as well as to encourage dialogue and the development of social partnership in the field of adult education.
The project plans to implement activities related to the modernisation of qualification standards as a starting point for developing market-relevant non-formal training programmes for adults. Also, it is intended to enforce actions regarding preparing content to be entered into the PROA (JPOA) sub-Register, which refers to PROA and accredited non-formal training programmes. Special attention will be paid to the analysis of various options for systemic solutions for implementing the concept of qualifications for employment in the context of improving labour market mobility and the analysis of the possibility of implementing these solutions in the education system of the Republic of Serbia.
The mentioned reform efforts of both the education and employment systems are the driving force for developing a functional market of non-formal training programmes. They are part of solving the problem of incompatibility of the adult education system with the needs of the economy, social and personal development, the issue of an insufficiently developed and sustainable system of social partnerships, the problem of lack of quality standards and coordination in the process of qualifications and training programmes development and their implementation, etc.
