The Kosovo Manufacturing Club certified the youth of the municipalities of Hani i Elezit and Kaçanik who attended the “On the Job Training” program, which is funded by USAID’s EMPOWER Private Sector project, in partnership with Swedish Agency for International Development and Cooperation, Sida.

Certification is provided for the second phase of trainees who finished their internship in the company “Sharrcem” in the municipality of Hani i Elezit, as well as interns who have gained hands-on experience with “Oxa Group” and “EuroThesi” in the municipality of Kaçanik. Beneficiaries of this program had the opportunity to be trained in the workplace through their commitment in the companies that they applied.

The “On the Job Training” program is set to mobilize private sector companies to be more active in professional training for youth. Interns have mastered a skilled and structured training program for the needs of the labor market. After the completion of their training, interns who were more skilled had the opportunity to be employees in companies where they interned.
