Reform: Vocational Education and Training Reform (2018-04-20)

On April 25 2018, in the second phase of the evaluation of Vocational Education Reform, the ongoing implementation of the reforms was evaluated.

According to the Government

Government Survey showed that 83.3% of the 2013-2017 action plan has been implemented; this indicator was 80% during the first phase. As of April 2018, 52.1% of the reform plans have been implemented.

The government’s formal progress (at the input and output level) in the target reform area is measured through a survey covering the following four dimensions:

  1. Institutional Setup
  2. Capacity Building
  3. Infrastructure & Budgeting
  4. Legislation & Regulations

The sets of indicators are designed to track progress on each dimension towards the system envisioned in the reform strategy. They cover all fundamental actions that have to be executed to create an optimal environment that will help achieve all reform objectives. Completion of all actions indicates achievement of the desired policy framework.

The sets of indicators captured by the questionnaires are used to measure distance from the stated reform objective on a scale from 0% (no action has taken place) to 100% (all desired systems are fully implemented, monitored and evaluated).

The questionnaires are filled out twice a year through face-to-face interviews with representatives of all agencies involved in the implementation of a particular reform.
