In the period 2012-2013 the ETF continued supporting a multi-country project in the region of the Western Balkans, Turkey and Israel, which involves the already well-established Regional Policy Network including representatives from your Ministry, the Centre for Vocational Education and Training, VET schools and different institutions in your country. This project is a result of ETF intervention in the area of VET for Social Inclusion and Social Cohesion.
LSE Enterprise “The London School of Economics” consultancy, worked with a team of international experts and experts from the WBTI countries to implement this project. As a result of the project are 9 country reports. These 9 country reports seek to provide new evidence on the role of VET in combating social exclusion and contributing to building more cohesive societies. To achieve these aims, research teams in nine countries have been investigating the impact of VET practice and policy on social inclusion and social cohesion, focusing on three VET schools/training centres in each of the countries. The project has used the method of participatory action research which is a reflective process of problem solving led by researchers from the countries, engaging with practitioners at VET schools and associated community representatives. National and local policy makers, school professionals, students, employers, researchers and civil society organisation representatives, as members of the national and local advisory boards, have been working closely with the schools in this reflective process.
