Radison Blu Old Mill Hotel in Belgrade, 89 December 2015

Young people who have rich employer engagement as part of their education are more likely to do better in the workplace and are less likely to stay unemployed. This becomes particularly relevant if you live in a region such as the Western Balkans, where over 50 per cent of youth are unemployed.

Our International conference, ‘See into the Future’ is a platform for dialogue between government policy-makers, educators and business leaders from the Western Balkans. This event will be held in Belgrade on 8 and 9 December 2015 and will create opportunity for all participants to address important issues relating to education and employment. The conclusions and dialogues that follow the conference will help towards securing a vibrant economic future for the region.

This conference is a part of the ‘Employer engagement and reform of vocational education and training’ project implemented by the British Council with the support from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Who will be there?

Together with our international partners we will bring some of the best minds together from government, universities, colleges and business from the Western Balkans and the UK. The conference will be attended by senior representatives from governments, some of the largest employers from the tourism sector, as well as education providers from the Western Balkans. 

What topics will be discussed at the conference?

The conference will cover a number of topics such as skills gaps that are present in many areas of the economy as well as partnership opportunities between different companies and educational institutions. Our speakers will also talk about various work based learning models that could be used in the Western Balkans.
