The European Training Foundation is supporting Kosovo in developing education and training to boost employability, increase access to opportunities and promote social cohesion.
We cooperate with and complement the work of the European Commission and the European External Action Service in its support to Kosovo, which includes input to EU policy monitoring mechanisms, including the Economic Reform Programme, assessment of progress on the Small Business Act for Europe and wider human capital developments reported in the Torino Process.
Our support focuses on developing the role and capacity of national actors in policy advice to improve the employability of women and vulnerable groups. We also provide support to improve the VET system governance, in particular to enhance the quality of data.
Kosovo participates in the Torino Process, the Quality Assurance Forum, the development of digital skills, activities supporting the continuing professional development of VET teachers and trainers, and the network of centres of vocational excellence.
