KOSOVO – Development and implementation of 13 different profile qualifications
Project KSV/020 developed the qualification sets for 13 different profiles identified as a priority in the manufacturing, construction, health and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sectors. The Ministry of Education and Science (MES) devised a strategic plan for the start of the new academic year and, with the support of the Project, achieved to start the implementation of 10 of the 13 profiles in selected Vocational Education and Training (VET) schools.
The process of creating qualification sets includes the development of occupational standards, the respective and aligned core curricula and lastly, the teaching and learning materials (TLM). The Project managed to effectively coordinate the virtual working sessions, ensuring that the qualification sets match international standards.
Qualification Sets Development
The profiles, in the sector of manufacturing and construction are:
- electrical installer;
- water, sewage & heating and air conditioning installer; and
- building insulation technician.
The profiles in the sector of health are:
- professional nurse;
- professional midwife;
- medical laboratory technician; and
- dental assistant.
The profiles in the sector of ICT are:
- graphic design,
- IT system technician;
- IT business support technician;
- interactive media designer; and
- application developer.
The Project followed a methodology that built on the one that was used for the establishment of the two Centres of Competence (CoC) in Ferizaj and Prizren, increasing peer reviewing and cooperation with the private sector at local and international level.
The manufacturing, construction, and health profile qualifications are to be implemented at a national level, following a Ministerial decision. Looking at the 5 ICT profiles, two profiles (IT System Technician and IT Business Support Technician) are being implemented in seven of the Project’s supported schools, while the others will be introduced in the following years.
These achievements have been very motivating for the project team. The good collaboration with the different beneficiaries and stakeholders are what has made these achievements possible.
The "Support to Vocational Education and Training (VET) Reform in Kosovo" programme, KSV/020, is funded by the Luxembourg Cooperation and implemented by LuxDev.↑ To the top
