WEBINAR: Voucher-based adult education scheme
For years, a labour market has indicated a lack of qualified employers, but also the fact that skills that workers possess are not in line with the current needs of the economy. Also, due to the lack of required competencies, unemployed people cannot meet the expectations of today’s job market. Taking into account all these indicators and in order to encourage additional training and adoption of new skills among adults, Croatian Ministry of Labour, Pension System, Family and Social Policy in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Education has launched a system of vouchers for adult education in April 2022. Croatian Employment Service Department is conducting the voucher-based adult education scheme together with the Ministry.
The webinar will introduce participants to the voucher-based adult education scheme in which it is planned to include 4,000 people over the age of 15 this year, and in total 30,000 people by 2026, who will acquire green and digital partial or micro-qualifications.
