The Jobs Gateway in South Eastern Europe CoP is honored to host Inta Susta and Ilze Buligina to share their experiences with implementing Work-Based Learning (WBL) in the Vocational Educational and Training (VET) system. They will focus on the structural context of VET reforms in Latvia to promote work-based learning, including the key development phases, challenges and best practices. Using a “bottom-up approach,” the practice of WBL was introduced in 2013 when the Ministry of Education and Science called on six VET institutions to partake in the WBL pilot project. Since then, the project served as a basis for WBL developments, and in July 2016, regulation on VET was implemented.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion on how this system can best be implemented in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia.

The video conference connections will be available at the following World Bank offices: Belgrade (7-715), Podgorica (WB Podgorica-2), Prishtina (2-07), Sarajevo (16-10), Skopje (0-03), Tirana (2-103), Vienna (19-8), and Washington, D.C. (MC 8-736). Simultaneous interpretation will be available in English and Serbo-Croatian.
