Les accords de stabilisation et d'association (ASA) sont uniques pour chaque pays, l'accent étant mis sur l'établissement d'un environnement de libre-échange entre les pays des Balkans occidentaux et l'UE ainsi que sur la fixation d'objectifs communs à atteindre dans le cadre du processus d'adhésion. L'ASA entre l'UE et le Kosovo, qui est entré en vigueur en 2016, définit également les réformes et les obligations nécessaires dans le domaine de l'éducation. L'objectif de l'instrument d'aide de préadhésion (IAP) est de développer les capacités des pays en soutenant leur développement économique, social et territorial. Conformément aux lignes directrices et aux paramètres de l'ASA, l'IAP II (2014-2020) finance le Kosovo sur la voie de son intégration dans l'UE.

L'IAP II introduit des documents de stratégie par pays (DSP) identifiant les principaux domaines prioritaires à financer. parmi ceux concernant le Kosovo figurent l'enseignement pré-universitaire et l'enseignement et la formation professionnels. Le projet KSV/801 est entièrement financé par l'UE et a été formulé conformément aux lignes directrices de l'IAP II. En outre, il s'aligne sur d'autres documents et stratégies nationaux tels que la Stratégie nationale de développement du Kosovo, le Programme européen de réforme du Kosovo et le Plan stratégique 2017-2021 pour l'éducation au Kosovo. L'objectif principal du projet est d'améliorer la structure et les performances du système d'enseignement et de formation professionnels (EFP) et la prestation de l'EFP au Kosovo, ainsi que de promouvoir une éducation inclusive et de qualité et un apprentissage tout au long de la vie pour tous, conformément au SDG4.

Mis en œuvre par LuxDev, en étroite coopération avec le Ministère de l'éducation, de la science et de la technologie du Kosovo (MEST), le projet KSV/801 s'inscrit dans le programme d'action IAP II 2018 contribuant au développement au Kosovo d'un système d'enseignement et de formation professionnels de qualité, inclusif et responsable. Plus précisément, son objectif est d'améliorer la qualité et la pertinence sur le marché du travail des programmes d'éducation et de formation afin de faciliter le passage de l'école à l'emploi des étudiants en formation professionnelle et d'améliorer l'employabilité des diplômés de la formation professionnelle. Cet objectif est atteint grâce au soutien apporté à trois écoles professionnelles et à plusieurs acteurs clés du secteur de la formation professionnelle, dont le MEST, le ministère du Travail et de la Protection sociale (MTPS), l'Autorité nationale des qualifications et l'Agence nationale pour l'emploi

Le projet est organisé autour de trois résultats:

  • la planification et l'offre de l'enseignement professionnel répondent aux besoins des apprenants et des employeurs dans certaines écoles professionnelles;
  • des systèmes de suivi des diplômés sont en place dans le domaine de l'EFP pour garantir la cohérence des données sur l'employabilité des diplômés et la pertinence des compétences par rapport aux besoins du marché du travail;
  • des arrangements et la fourniture de reconnaissance des acquis au niveau du Kosovo sont en place et opérationnels dans les secteurs/professions économiques les plus nécessaires en tant que forme d'amélioration de l'emploi et des possibilités d'apprentissage tout au long de la vie pour les apprenants adultes.

Le projet bénéficie des enseignements tirés des projets d'EFP financés par le Grand-Duché de Luxembourg et mis en œuvre au Kosovo par LuxDev, en particulier le projet KSV/015 " Appui à la réforme de la formation et de l'enseignement professionnel au Kosovo : Création de centres de compétences à Ferizaj et Prizren" et projet KSV/020, "Appui à la réforme de l'enseignement et de la formation professionnels au Kosovo 2".

Ce dernier élargit encore le soutien au secteur de l'EFP, en développant les capacités des institutions locales à améliorer la qualité et la réactivité du secteur de l'EFP à la demande du marché du travail. En outre, il vise à aider le gouvernement du Kosovo à revoir le cadre juridique, la structure de gouvernance et la structure financière actuels en vue de moderniser certaines composantes essentielles du système national de formation professionnelle.

Le projet KSV/801 sera mis en œuvre sur une période de trois ans débutant en janvier 2020 avec un budget total de 2 000 000 EUR.

  • KOSOVO - Operationalise recognition of prior learning as active labour market measure

    Publié le 30 Septembre 2021    Par Daniele Passalacqua and Hana Bacaj   EN

    The European Union project, Support to vocational education and training, professional requalification and occupation, ESVET PRO has been supporting the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo with technical and financial support, in establishing a legal framework and operational arrangements to include recognition of prior learning as a complementary active labour market measure. Kosovo’s active labour market measures promote labour market integration by reducing job-finding barriers and increasing employment probability.

    More specifically, ESVET PRO has provided technical support to the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo to revise the regulation on active labour market measures (No. 01/2018). This regulation implements the following active labour market measures:

    • vocational training (through vocational training centres );
    • on-the-job training;
    • wage subsidies;
    • internship scheme;
    • self-employment and promoting entrepreneurship; and
    • public works.

    Consequently, the goal was to include recognition of prior learning as part of the active labour market measures mentioned above and operationalise it through the two related manuals:

    • the operational manual for training and re-training; and  
    • the operational manual for employment services provision.

    For this process, ESVET PRO provided specialised expertise for the revision of the two manuals and the provision of training to the directors of VTCs on the implementation and operationalisation of these manuals.

    In June, project ESVET PRO, EU representatives, the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo, vocational training centres directors and other important stakeholders met to celebrate an important milestone : the revision and the update of two manuals that make recognition of prior learning fully operational as active labour market measure.

    The chief technical advisor of the project ESVET PRO, Daniele Cristian Passalacqua, highlighted that “this ceremony constitutes only one of the agreed activities as part of the memorandum of understandings, co-signed between the project ESVET PRO and the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo. Our cooperation aims to support the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo and vocational training centres to fully operationalise recognition of prior learning as an active labour arket measure at national level”.


    Daniele Cristian Passalacqua (chief technical advisor of ESVET PRO) and Stergios Tragoudas (programme manager-EU policies-education) discussing regarding the importance of fully operationalizing recognition of prior learning as an active labour market measure.

    The European Union representative, Stergios Tragoudas, expressed his gratitude to the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo for their commitment and professionalism in collaborating with ESVET PRO, a project funded by the European Union and implemented by LuxDev. Mr Tragoudas stated that this event marks an important milestone for Kosovo’s vocational education and training system. He hopes that the ESVET PRO project and the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo will continue to bring greater outcomes to promote quality education and lifelong learning for all in Kosovo.

    The director of the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo, Mr Drin Haraqia and the head of the vocational education and training department, Ms Jehona Rexha, thanked the ESVET PRO project for the support and assured that the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo  would continue its commitment to the organisation of future joint activities.

    The event was followed by a training delivered to all directors of vocational training centres on the implementation of the manuals. The project ESVET PRO will continue to support the employment agency of the Republic of Kosovo and vocational training centres in successfully implementing the recognition of prior learning component throughout Kosovo.

  • KOSOVO – Inaugural events kicked off after the establishment of the Industrial Bodies in the three selected schools

    Publié le 5 Juillet 2021    Par Hana Bacaj   EN

    During the last two months, the European Union funded project ESVET PRO celebrated a great milestone through the inauguration of the Industrial Bodies The main purpose of these events was to present the importance of having the private sector as part of the core management within the VET schools and their influence in strengthening the quality and attractiveness of VET. Ensuring the quality and attractiveness of VET is important both in terms of providing the right competencies for the labour market, but also as a means of securing the quantity and the quality of VET graduates.

    Therefore, one of the major components and support of ESVET PRO is the implementation of the Business Model (BM) Approach in the three selected VET schools by the Project. The Project established and started the implementation of the BM by identifying partnership gaps and promoting partnerships for the supported profiles, as well as launching the Industrial Advisory Boards and Industrial Bodies. By establishing the Industrial Bodies, the schools do not merely aim at fostering the relationship with the private sector, instead they also intend to integrate the representatives of local businesses within the middle-management structure of the VET school. This approach will ensure a constant presence of private businesses within schools and will allow the utilization of the resources coming from the private sector. The Business Model approach is being adapted to the Kosovo’s legal and economic environment and with the support of ESVET PRO and Project KSV/020, MESTI is in the process of establishing the legal basis for the implementation of the Business Model management concept in VET schools.

    Until now, the three selected schools have formalized approximately 50 partnerships with private companies that will be engaged in the Industrial Bodies of the schools. More specifically, in each of the three schools there are approximately five to six businesses that are part of one Industrial body. Partner businesses will be continuously involved in terms of reviewing and updating qualification sets, effective provision of work-based learning, capacity development of teachers and school management, and long-lasting partnership for effective sustainability of the school.

    Therefore, following the successful implementation of the Industrial Bodies in the three supported schools; two of the schools organized an inauguration ceremony. The inauguration of the Industrial Bodies was organized and held within the premises of Adem Gllavica and Feriz Guri dhe Vëllezërit Çaka schools in the municipalities of Lipjan and Kaçanik respectively, to celebrate this important achievement for schools and businesses. Part of these events were representatives from the business community, respective municipality officials, school partners, and project representatives.

    Improving VET schools’ performance in line with labour market demand requires big strategic moves. And every big move starts with a first step. The inaugural events were a first step in the long road to making the Business Model a reality.

  • KOSOVO - The National Plan for the development and implementation of the Kosovo Graduate Tracking System

    Publié le 18 Avril 2021    Par Daniele Passalacqua and Hana Bacaj   EN

    Bringing international and local stakeholders together to brainstorm is helpful to see things from different vantage points. On February 23rd, 2021, the Project ESVET PRO- KSV/801 organized a hybrid (in-person and online) workshop for the review of the methodology for the graduate tracking system. This workshop stimulated real-time thoughts, ongoing ideas, and discussions with the international and local stakeholders present.

    The graduate tracking system will provide the VET stakeholders, schools, and Vocational Training Centres (VTCs) with evidence on the graduates’ employability data and skill relevance to the labour market needs.

    Based on the latest decision of the Government of the Republic of Kosovo against the Covid-19 pandemic; the Project, was allowed to host at most 30 participants and all the guidelines on the measures to keep everyone safe during the workshop have been strictly applied. 

    The workshop brought together important VET stakeholders from the Ministry of Education and Science (MES), Employment Agency of the Republic of Kosovo (EARK), Municipal Education Directorate, donor-funded project, and NGOs. Other representatives who could not join the event in-person from European Training Foundation (ETF), and Ministry of Education and Science of North Macedonia participated via Zoom platform.

    In the first part of the workshop, the Project presented the draft methodology about the establishment and implementation of the Graduate Tracking System and the support that the Project will provide in this matter.

    In the second part, based on experience and practical examples, VET stakeholders engaged in in-depth discussions about establishing a sustainable and rigorous methodology for Tracer Study which will serve in the long-term in the VET sector in Kosovo. At the end, an expert from ETF gave a very positive note about the draft methodology as well as confirmed the willingness of ETF to cooperate with the Project towards this direction.

    This workshop was very fruitful and an important step towards the creation of a graduate tracking system, which can be a very valuable tool that contributes to the labour market information system, particularly when certain criteria are followed. Graduate tracking system for VET sector are implemented in many countries in the world and in the region; therefore, having such system implemented in Kosovo is a crucial step to be closer to European Union standards.

    Reviewing the national plan for the implementation of the Graduate Tracking System is not only important and a great achievement of ESVET PRO and the MES but also a great example of synergy and cooperation between all stakeholders involved in the VET sector.
