According to the latest UNESCO data (2012) only (95.5%) of the Albanian population (25+) completed primary (ISCED 01) education, leading to roughly 14,000 people potentially illiterate.
The total of unemployed in Albania are 172,700 individuals according to the LFS elaborated by the National Institute of Statistics (NB: the total population is 2.8 million, and the total workforce 1.3 million). In June 2019, a total of 72,700 individuals were registered in the National Employment Services (NES), most of them in the urban areas. Out of these some 1,800 are illiterate (with no educational certificatewhatsoever) registered adult (29+) jobseekers; some other 2,450 (29+) only completed primary education (ISCED 01) and additional 3,500 (30-39) completed lower secondary education (ISCED 02) but are reported to lack both professional skills the other soft and technical skills indispensable to obtain a job. In addition, poor primary education provided in some remote areas, does not guarantee learning outcomes, even when a certificate was obtained. These roughly 7,750 vulnerable, low educated registered jobseekers are among the most difficult unemployed to activate, they are currently not supported at all by Active Labour Market Programmes (ALMPs) or targeted services.
The “Supported Continuous Unemployed Learning” (SCUL) project, financed by the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), implemented jointly by the National Agency for Employment and Skills and UNDP Albania, aims to contribute to the active participation of vulnerable low qualified jobseekers to the society and their transition to the labour market through the provision of quality, flexible, targeted trainings on basic skills. The action is expected to have an impact on the literacy ratio in Albania (95.5% in 2012). The action is fully in line with the National Employment and Skills Strategy (NESS 2019-2022), the long-term programmatic document with which the government of Albania committed with its citizens in promoting sustainable growth through social and economic inclusion.
Currently in Albania very limited targeted support is provided to low skilled unemployed people. The whole intervention is conceived as a capacity development project at the institutional level. Most of the deliverables provided under the project will lead to the establishment of a structure to support this target group. The intervention follows an integrated approach, both in the analysis of target group, its needs (educational and socio-economic) and in the service delivery. The ratio is that employment services complement other social services; the development of specific procedures to support the target group will include references to other social institution in charge of complementary services. This approach is expected to create bridges between different key-actors in the provision of social service, with the long-term ambition of building an integrated case management system.
The ambition of this intervention is to establish a structure and enhance the capacities to address the specific needs of the target group, building on which, hopefully, trigger systemic upskilling mechanisms in the longer term, progressively reducing the size of the group and facilitate its transition towards the labour market. The intervention aims to achieve the following outputs:
Output 1: Vulnerable jobseekers are referred to tailored basic learning provision or other social services
Output 2: Low skilled job seekers benefitted from quality, flexible, targeted trainings on basic skills
Output 3: Training provision is constantly improved based on collected evidence.
The project has started its implementation in 2020, and its second work package (WP2) will focus on conducting an in-depth analysis of the target group, which will help on identifying specific sub-groups based on criteria other than age and educational attainment. The analysis will dig into demographic characteristics, social-economic factors, geographical provenience, the need for complementary health care or social services. Ideally, a sectoral approach will be included in the target group analysis, matching the data extracted by the NES registry with potential and features of specific economic sectors and regions, giving to the project a glimpse of foresight vision. Considered that multi-dimensional nature of vulnerability, the quantitative analysis will be supported by qualitative insights, based on counselling techniques, interviews and map of aspirations for specific individuals. As such, the SCUL project is seeking to engage two national experts to conduct the review, who will be working jointly, in close cooperation with the UNDP and the NAES team, mainly in Tirana, but also by engaging with the direct beneficiaries in the selected municipalities.
