University American College – Skopje won a project as a partner institution in the project “Mapping of VET Educational Policies and Practices for Social Inclusion and Social Cohesion” led by LSE Enterprise, the consulting arm of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
The aim of the project is to deepen the understanding of the main barriers and potential opportunities for building inclusive and equitable VET systems in the Western Balkans, Turkey and Israel, given the current social and economic challenges facing the region. The project will also assist capacity building of national stakeholders to establish policies and practices for enhancing the role of VET and its multidimensional contributions to the promotion of skills, socialization, civic values, social inclusion and social cohesion.
Teams of experts from Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Israel, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey will participate and work on this project, by doing the country reports and ensuring access to local knowledge. Macedonian team is represented by Dr. Nikica Mojsoska – Blazevski, Dean of the School of Business Economics and Management and Maja Ristovska, MA candidate, both members of the UACS Laboratory for Labour Market and Social Policy Analysis.
