The Steering Committee (SC) of the Education for Employment Project has adopted the Analysis of Career Guidance in BiH, which includes an assessment of current career guidance services in BiH schools, universities and employment institutes. Taking into account the remarks and corrections presented, the analysis was adopted at the online SC meeting, held on January 21, 2022.
The project Career Guidance Working Group actively participated in the development of this analysis and, based on its findings, is currently working on developing a concept of career guidance. Support for career guidance reforms through the development of strategies and concepts is one of the important activities of the Education for Employment in BiH project. The revised version of the analysis will be officially submitted for use to all ministries of education in BiH.
At the SC meeting, the Proposal for the training program for employees in ministries of education and educational institutions and the Proposal for the development of a model for monitoring development processes in education were adopted with no remarks.
