The project is a module of the overarching programme „Sustainable Economic Development in the Republic of Moldova“. It renders support to the political partners, as well as diverse private sector stakeholders, social partners and education providers to embark into a constructive dialogue in order to jointly identify ways to strengthen the regulatory framework for dual VET.
The main areas of intervention include:
- Intervention area (1) „Policy advice for strengthening the framework conditions for dual VET“
- Intervention area (2) „Promoting involvement of economic operators in piloting dual VET models”
- Intervention area (3) „Improving the image of VET”
A dialogue and consensus platform is created in the framework of the project. For this purpose, relevant stakeholders were identified and current practices at all policy levels were assessed. The political partners receive support in the process of optimising the existing institutional framework conditions and financing models, as well as in the development of necessary curricula and standards for a dual VET concept.
The project shall strengthen the involvement of selected enterprises and agricultural producers in shaping a demand-driven VET. Employers` associations, social partners` organisations, as well as the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Moldova (CCI) are being supported to enhance their contribution in the policy dialogue at national level with regard to demand-driven VET.
