Entrepreneurship and employability
The overall objective of this 24-month project called "Development of Qualification Framework for lifelong learning", which started on 7th March 2016 is contribution to strengthening quality and efficiency of the education system including provision of adult learning and contribution to the comparability of education systems in Bosnia and Herzegovina with education systems in the EU based on EU strategy 2020 and EQF.
City Development Agency Banja Luka is continuously preparing development projects and runs them for the calls for projects to publish within the current development programmes, projects and available funds. During April and May 2017, the agency prepared two new projects in cooperation with local partners.
Since 2016 the Maritime school Kotor provides training for the highest qualifications in seamanship in compliance with training modules 7.01 and 7.02.
Training is available for the following qualifications:
1. Ship commander for ships of 3000 GT or bigger and first deck officer for ships of 3000 GT or bigger and for
2. Chief engineer for ships with engines of capacity 3000 kW or more and second engine officer for ships with engines of capacity 3000 kW or more.
Vocational secondary schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina still respond slowly to economy's needs for certain professions.
Coton FINAL roll up cut identification and use of new technologies and tools in vocational schools don't progress fast enough, too. Companies are often informed better and adopt new technologies more quickly, while schools are mostly poorly equipped.
Rather than prepare people for specific jobs we need to prepare them for employability as we do not even know what kind of new jobs we are going to have in the years ahead.
