Adult Vocational Training Manual

Adult Vocational Training Manual within the BiH Chamber System provides a comprehensive picture of the development and implementation of adult training programs. The recommendations contained in this document are based on the already initiated activities initiated by the HELVETAS My Future project, which should provide support and sustainability of adult vocational training activities.

Modern tendencies of development of market economy countries have shown that training and creation of human resources are at the top of the priorities of the strategy and policy of social, economic and technological progress. A common driver in many European countries is seeking to establish a flexible adult vocational training system to respond to changing labor market demands. This gradual process cannot be realized only by schools and ministries of education, but they must also actively involve other interest groups, such as: chambers of commerce, non-governmental organizations, employment bureaus, etc. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to establish a common agreement / consensus on specific rights through further modernization and quality assurance in adult vocational training.

This Handbook was developed within the joint project of the Helvetas Moja Budućnost Foundation and the Cantonal Chambers of Commerce of Sarajevo Canton, Zenica-Doboj Canton and Tuzla Canton. The project aims to build the capacity of chambers of commerce to manage the process of adult education for the development of skilled labor, and in accordance with the needs of company members, and the Manual will be such a server in further developing services that chambers intend to provide in the market. The manual was prepared by the consultant mr. Jelena Jakovljević, Ph.D. Almir Sivro, with the cooperation of chamber staff and experience gained in adult education for the needs of the labor market in BiH.
