As a part of planned activities within the project “Partnership for quality jobs and competitiveness”, training of the second group of seven unemployed persons from Prnjavor for CNC operators was completed. There were three nineteen-year-olds in the group, and we are especially glad that the training was also attended by one lady. The training lasted 40 school hours and it was performed at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Banja Luka. The training participants are very satisfied with the opportunity provided and with quality of the training.
Within the project “Partnership for quality jobs and competitiveness”, 15 people have been trained for CNC operators so far. Having in mind that there is a significant demand for this occupation, we hope that the training participants will be employed soon.
Local partnership Prnjavor is one of 19 partnerships established in the country within the project “Support to Local Employment Partnerships in B&H”, funded by the European Union with 4 million EUR and implemented by the International Labor Organization (ILO), which aims to re-qualify nearly 2,000 unemployed persons and employ at least 620 of them in 22 local government units.
The partnership consists of Enterprise Development Agency Eda (lead partner), Municipality of Prnjavor, Employment Bureau, Secondary School Center “Ivo Andrić” and companies MI Trivas and Topling.
