The Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit of the Government of the Republic of Serbia (SIPRU) has prepared a video, which presents the innovative models developed within the programme “Education to Employment (E2E)” whose aim is to increase employment and employability of young people in Serbia. The video presents ways in which innovative approaches, individualisation of measures to correspond the needs of young people, and adaptation of services to the knowledge, skills and capacities of each person can respond to the challenge of youth employment.
Within the programme, partner organisations from Belgrade (Youth with Disabilities Forum), Užice (Association Užice Centre for Human Rights and Democracy), Novi Sad (Centre for Youth Work), Sombor (Sombor Educational Centre), Niš (Association for Local Development Kamenica) and Leskovac (European Movement in Serbia – Leskovac) developed innovative models, which are proving to be “solutions that work” when it comes to addressing the issue of youth unemployment.
On the subject of how models work in practice and why innovation is important in the approach to solving the unemployment issue, you will hear from: Dejan Mitić from the Association for Local Development Kamenica, Jovana Krivokuća Milovanović from the Youth with Disabilities Forum, Nemanja Dokić, participant of a project within the Centre for Youth Work, and Veljko Stanković, participant of a project within the Association for Local Development Kamenica.
The video was prepared by the organisation BeFem in cooperation with SIPRU.
The programme “Education to Employment” (E2E) is realised with the support of the Government of Switzerland, and it is being implemented by the Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and NIRAS-IP Consult. The goal of the E2E programme is to strengthen the status of young people in the Serbian labour market by improving the policies and practices in the field of youth employment, the relevant legal framework, as well as by developing skills and knowledge required by employers.
