The presence of Mr. Stergios Tragoudas, Programme Manager for Education in the EU Office represents the high level of cooperation, and the importance given to this component by the donor and all the relevant stakeholders.

The Master Trainers will train RPL practitioners (mentors, coordinators and assessors) in the near future. In order to increase the capacities related to the implementation of the RPL, intensive training sessions were also organized for RPL practitioners of various VET institutions.
