Vocational Education and Training (VET) contributes significantly to the creation of jobs, economic growth and social development, as well as to personal development and social inclusion. It constitutes an important part of lifelong learning and plays a vital role in enabling young people to acquire skills and competences relevant for labour market requirements. SEE countries have identified VET development as a very important factor for economic and social development and considerable actions have been foreseen with the national IPA and ENPI planning documents. In order to fulfill the potential of their VET systems, the countries in SEE are undergoing fundamental changes, as a result of numerous international, regional and national initiatives.

In its Work Programme for 2011 ERI SEE has identified the development of mutual policy learning practices through enhanced institutional cooperation in Vocational Education and Training in South East Europe as one of its objectives. Building on the previous initiatives in the region carried out under the ERI SEE umbrella in cooperation with different partners, the 4th Meeting of the SEEVET-Net which was held on July 11-12, 2011 in Chisinau, Moldova had three main goals:

  • to create the SEE Regional VET Network between the vocational education and training institutions acting in SEECP region through signing the Cooperation Agreement;
  • to operationalise the Cooperation Agreement through brainstorming and discussion on developing a work plan for 2012/13;
  • to provide an opportunity for VET institutions acting in the SEECP region to exchange information and their experience.

The 4th Meeting of the SEEVET-Net gathered the representatives of the VET institutions from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia as well as the representatives of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), European Training Foundation (ETF) and the Centre for Education Policy as the Interim Agency of the Education Reform Initiative of South Eastern Europe (ERI SEE).

At the occasion of the 4th Meeting of the SEEVET-Net, the SEE Regional VET Network (SEEVET-Net) was officially established through signing the Cooperation Agreement between VET institutions from Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro and Serbia. All VET institutions that were not able to sign the Cooperation Agreement in Chisinau, Moldova are welcomed to do so at a later stage.

The meeting enabled a platform for discussion on developing the SEEVET-Net Work Programme for 2012/2013. Concrete specific objectives and activities for 2012 as well as the important topics to be covered in 2013 were identified by representatives of the VET institutions acting in SEECP region.

The representatives of the VET institutions had the opportunity to exchange information and their experience and to hear about the global and European trends in VET from the OECD and ETF representatives.

The meeting was jointly organized by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Moldova, the National VET Centre of Montenegro, the Director of which is Chair of SEEVET-Net and the Centre for Education Policy/ERI SEE Interim Agency.
