ETF and EAFA members visit the vocational school and partner business in Lezha, as part of the WBL seminar agenda.

On 25th of September, representatives from the European Alliance for Apprenticeships (EAfA) member states and candidate countries visited the vocational ‘Kolin Gjoka’ school in Lezha.

Guests were introduced to the Apprenticeship-like model piloted in the school with the support of Swiss funded ‘Skills for Jobs’ (S4J) project. The school team presented the novelties introduced in the last two years with the focus to promote work-based learning to facilitate a smoother transition from school to work for the graduates.

EAfA member states representatives were impressed by the dedicated work of the school teachers that has enabled 226 students to be hosted in 43 partner businesses as apprentices (until June 2018).

After the school, guests visited schools’ business partner ‘Hoteli i Gjuetisë’. They felt even more welcomed by the apprentices there, who together with famous Albanian slow-food chef Alfred Marku had prepared delicious finger foods…and by the end of the visit, not a cup of David’s ‘trademark’ tiramisu was left 😉.

During the visit, S4J staff had the chance to exchange with ETF and EAfA member representatives on mobility opportunities for apprentices in S4J supported schools.

ETF and EAfA are now preparing for their yearly event, the European Vocational Skills Week. From 5 to 9 November, multiple events with a focus on vocational skills, work-based learning (WBL) and life-long learning opportunities will take place in many European countries, including Albania promoted by ‘Skills for Jobs’ S4J.

David Paloka and Xhoena Vitoja, two apprentices from S4J supported schools, were invited by EAfA to join some of the events it is hosting during the European Skills Week in Austria. Let’s hope that David will once again steal the guests’ hearts with his trademark tiramisu recipe 😉
