News archive - New study on higher education provision and labour market needs in Western Balkans

The Western Balkans Platform on Education and Training has released its latest study. Entitled From University to Employment: mapping higher education provision and labour market needs in the Western Balkans, the study focuses on higher education provision and labour market needs in the Western Balkans, offering concrete data for policy reform in both higher education and labour sectors.

 

It is the first study in the region to answer questions on how many degrees are given by year and in which field, on the obstacle of entry into the labour market by graduates and on what employers are looking for in terms of skills.

The study offers a set of concrete recommendations to tackle the identified issues, both at individual country level and at regional level.

The study has also assembled a unique higer education database that includes details of virtually all study programmes offered by all higher education institutions in the region in recent years.
