In 2017, EVN Macedonia launched a pilot project promoting dual education in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. In cooperation with the secondary vocational school “Mihajlo Pupin”, the programme is one of the first established in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Experts from EVN Macedonia and professors from our partner VET school and the Center for Vocational Education had analyzed the existing curricula for electro fitter and compared them with Austrian curricula. As a result, existing curricula has been adapted and improved to fit current and future labor market needs. We put special emphasis on practical classes, ensuring a balanced combination between school-based learning and in-company learning. The project includes actions aiming at fighting stereotypes in the workplace. Our efforts resulted with increased interest and participation in apprenticeships by female pupils.

The pilot project has been approved and supported by the Minister of Education and Science of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
