The Strategy on Employment and Skills was extended until 2026.


Digitalization of Vocational Education and Training in Albania

From March 2022 to January 2023, the “Skills for Jobs” project implemented a series of activities that contributed to the development of partner providers’ capacities in applying new teaching methods. The primary goal of these activities was to promote the adoption of technology in new ways of teaching and learning in schools. As a result, schools received support in various forms, such as training to develop teachers’ digital skills through participation in the “Digital Pedagogy” training package, the digitization of teaching materials for five directions, and the introduction of digital focal points in partner providers. S4J’s support for policy-making institutions involved the development of “A Roadmap to ICT-Supported Modernization of Albanian VET.”

The application of pedagogical and digital skills acquired during training is facilitated by teachers’ access to digital teaching materials. Therefore, during this period, 34 teachers, 5 pedagogical experts, and 6 digitization experts were engaged in designing and digitizing interactive learning materials in accordance with the curriculum framework and learning objectives. They completed 55 subjects in five respective directions: Food Technology, Economics and Business (Office Administration profile), Service of Transport Vehicles, Mechanics, and ICT. The digital learning content will be available on the MesoVet platform after February 2023.



National Employment Services re-organized to National Qualification Agencies

The above mentioned structures aiming to foster connections between VET and labor market were changed in late 2021.
