Economic development, employment promotion and technical and vocational training (ProSEED)
The objective of this project intervention is to boost employment of the skilled workforce and self-employed skilled youth in the Albanian labor market. It aims at strengthening and improving not only employability skills, but is also committed to increasing actual employment rates among vocational training course graduates. This is will be achieved through better skills and qualifications as well as through enhanced school-to-work transition, both embedded in a much more intensive involvement of the private sector. The projects target group includes youth with or without general education certificates who are supported to obtain a vocational qualification for entering the labor market, working adults who attend training courses to improve their employability skills, as well as unemployed and underemployed individuals. As a crosscutting attribute, 30% of all participants of the implemented measures are returnees from European countries (with a work experience of >3 months abroad). Therefore, the project makes an important contribution to enhancing their reintegration in the country.
