Education and Labour Market

Governments in many transition countries have been undertaking efforts to reform the education and training system oriented at recognised international standards. In order to enhance skills and employability, young and adult trainees need to be prepared for the requirements of a dynamic working life.

This calls for close collaboration among local employment offices, employers, trade unions and other social partners to respond jointly to the challenges of employment promotion. Labour market skills analyses need to consider gender aspects, vulnerable groups and age to establish a starting point for inclusive access of all social groups to education and employment opportunities.

The sector needs enhanced competencies of institutions, trainers and networks to contribute to application-oriented training provision. PEM CONSULT is committed to facilitate cooperation, coordination and communication among all stakeholders in the education system, the labour market and donor institutions and provide all partners with the support they need to fulfil their roles in the system.
