Posted by Aleksandra Hristov on September 29th, 2009 under Events | No Comments »

At the beginning of September we have organized very significant event In Sava Centar. We have organized a big conference for the European Council Project “Support for Unemployed and Human Resource Development”. Additionally, we have done media relations for the Project and had 28 coverage’s on most influence media in Serbia, which includes 11 TV coverage’s about event and testimony of people who finished the trainings and found the jobs.


On the conference Mr. Ferenc Simon (1st counselor, Head of Operations, European Commission Delegation), addressed European support to the Projects, Ms. Danica Vasiljevic, (Deputy Director  of National Employment Service), Dr. Henrik Jess ( Team Leader GOPA) and Mr. Dejan Nikolić (National Project Director, National Employment Service, Republic of Serbia) presented results through collaboration.

EU-funded project Support for Unemployed and Human Resource Development has carried out a comprehensive training Programme for more than fifteen-hundred unemployed in order for these individuals to find a permanent job. It managed by EU collaboration with experts from GOPA mbH (Germany) in the cooperation with the National Employment Service (NES) and the Ministry of Economy and Regional Development (MoERD).

Training has been organized through ninety-five different short-term vocational training courses spanning different growth sectors of the Serbian economy as documented by labor market analyses carried out by the project.  Each training course was designed in collaboration with enterprises and vocational training institutions, and each course combined theoretical understanding with practical learning on-the-job.  Priorities have been given to young job-seekers, long-term unemployed, and individuals with disabilities.

The initial effects on employment have been encouraging.  More than 35% of the unemployed who graduated from training in 2008 have found a job; in 2009, the results have been affected by the world-wide financial crisis as this has made employers hesitant to hire immediately.  More than 10% of those who graduated in 2009 have found a job, and others are actively searching for one based on newly acquired skills through this Programme.
