3 Basic report on the NQF Unemployment is around 30% - no liable date from LM. Employers are not satisfied with existing qualifications. Exams are developed, realized and assessed within the schools and its teachers. Transfer from III-years to IV-years of schooling is possible with passed exams. After secondary education it is possible to advance. There are no certificates in continuing VET and non-formal sector that are recognized in the system. Existing qualifications are in Nomenclature (8 levels) which is not compatible with ISCO (5 levels).

4 Three focus groups Topics:
Sarajevo - Belgrade Topics: “Connection between needs on LM and supply from VET schools” “Educational outcomes of qualifications for technician and trained worker” “Social partners’ involvement in development of qualifications” The results are: Partner’s development of relevant draft documents; Increased employers’ awareness and competencies for expressing the needs and demands toward educational system; Development of the system for information exchange; Monitoring and researching the field of qualifications – toward EQF; Modern educational programs should be flexible and defined by learning outcomes – quality to be measured by levels of students’ achievements of outcomes/competencies; Basis for creating modern educational programs to be the NQS developed through partnership of all relevant stakeholders.

9 Three meetings-seminars - Discussion parts -
more needed: To develop and then sign the Resolution of NQF development; To redefine (transfer) educational profiles into occupational standards that will be nationally approved and will become basis for further curriculum development; To recognize the need for statistical evidences and analysis - early to start from adjustments with European systems; To give priority to NQF development and to coordinate activities between international (CARDS) projects;

10 Three meetings-seminars - Discussion parts -
and finally needed: To keep on working on NQF development within the whole system – from the lowest to the highest level; To adjust the new NQF with recommendations and attitudes defined in European documents dealing with this issue in respect of recently existing process of joining EU.
