In co-operation with the Serbian European Integration Office, we have for the past three years run the Professional Development Programme in the UK. The programme targets public servants of the Republic of Serbia, members of the Government's negotiating teams who work on accession of Serbia to the European Union.
The programme supports professionals who are able to share knowledge with colleagues and continue with the work on EU accession upon return, building on the experience gained in the UK. The participants work side by side with UK colleagues and often in an international environment. Professional Development Programme in the UK has been beneficial both to the public servants and the institutions they represent.
