At the very beginning, the Head of the Europe Direct Koprivnica-Križevci County, Marina Šandor Krznarić and the Head of the Europe Direct Karlovac, Martina Mikaš, welcomed all present and thanked the Ministry of Labour, Pension System, Family and Social Policy for their active participation in this online workshop, attended by 40 participants, representatives of public law bodies, educational institutions and private and civil sector.
Mrs. Irena Bačelić, Head of the Labor Market Sector in the Directorate for Market and Employment of the Ministry of Labour, Pension System, Family and Social Policy, presented the system of vouchers for education for employed and unemployed persons, which will last until 2026. She pointed out that these vouchers with an emphasis on green and digital skills are a great opportunity for all employed and unemployed people with the aim of increasing their competence and competitiveness on the labor market. Vouchers are also an opportunity to match the real needs of the labor market with the educational programs provided by adult education institutions.
