Today the Red Cross of the Republic of North Macedonia opened the new Educational Training Center for Adult Training in Skopje.
At the opening of the Center there were addresses by the Secretary General of the Red Cross of the Republic of North Macedonia PhD. Sait Saiti and the Minister of Education and Science Ms. Mila Carovska.
The Minister stressed the importance of opening this type of educational training centers, which provide high quality learning and opportunities for obtaining qualifications in accordance with the needs of the population.
The Secretary General thanked the Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection and the Austrian Red Cross for the support provided in equipping and functioning of the center. Special gratitude was expressed to the Ministry of Education and Science, the Center for Adult Education, as well as the partners who provide strong support for the development of special verified Red Cross training programs for adults to acquire knowledge, skills and competencies and create quality and competitive labor force in the labor market, which contributes to increasing employability, and thus contributes to economic, social and personal development.
In the period so far, starting from 2017, the Red Cross has trained a total of 750 unemployed people who have obtained a certificate of appropriate qualification. The increased number of educated staff increases the opportunities for reaching a larger number of citizens who will receive adequate care and assistance in their homes and in the community. On the other hand, there are several social benefits – an opportunity for unemployed people to gain qualifications and be more competitive in the labor market, employment benefits for the vulnerable population, and in particular, the delivery of quality social services for improvement of the health and well-being of the citizens in the communities.
