Pilot In-Company Mentors’ Training for Mentors in Vlora  / Skills for Jobs 

Skills for Jobs is a project of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) that is implemented by Swisscontact as part of the Economic Development Domain of the Swiss Cooperation Strategy for Albania (2014-2017). The project facilitates the development of quality Vocational Education and Training (VET) offers by supporting VET providers in offering labour market integration facilities with string networks with employers and including dual approaches and new ways of learning. Currently S4J partner providers have established collaboration with more than 300 businesses offering apprenticeship. While there is a list of criteria to be fulfilled by the hosting business, no official assessment of the In-Company Trainer is performed. Furthermore, an urgent need for developing mentoring skills of the In-Company Trainers has risen during interviews with all stakeholders. The In-Company Trainer qualification program enables the companies to carry out professional training programs and to raise the service quality of the companies. The aim of this collaboration between Swisscontact and UET was to pilot the training course program for 15 in-company trainers in Vlora region through an intensive 4-week training program.
