RCC’s ESAP Technical Assistance: Measuring Impact of Vocational Training on Employment

Upon the request of the Public Employment Agency of Kosovo*, the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), through its Employment and Social Affairs Platform (ESAP) project, has commissioned an analysis of the impact of programmes delivered by Vocational Training Centres (VTCs) on employment creation in Kosovo*.

The analysis will entail a survey of the training programmes participants as well as relevant businesses that have employed individuals with completed training programmes at the VTCs (870 individual beneficiaries and 130 businesses will be interviewed). The survey will assess the relevance of training programmes for job seekers and the skills that were enhanced through such training.

The analysis is expected to be finalized and published end of November 2018.

This activity is a part of the ESAP technical assistance to support national processes related to the preparation, monitoring and follow up of national employment, labour market and social affairs strategies, action plans and/or measures, as well as other priority areas under the mandate of Ministries of Labour and Public Employment Services, who are the beneficiaries of this assistance.

The RCC's ESAP project is funded by the EU.
