Evaluation

In the Operational Programme’s ex ante evaluation, the advantages, weaknesses and the new challenges that exist or that are expected to arise during the development of the area of education and initial vocational training were identified in the SWOT analysis.

The new opportunities (challenges) that demark the areas where the programme’s action plans should weigh more heavily are shown summarily below

       STRENGTHS OPPORTUNITIES (S/O)
S/O 1 Creation of an Open and Inclusive Society
S/O 2 Lifelong Learning
S/O 3 Creation of the Information Society
S/O 4 Qualitative improvement of education provided
S/O 5 Connection of education and production
S/O 6 Creation of innovation and inventiveness
S/O 7 Flexibility of educational system and its capability for adaptation
S/O 8 Access to all educational levels
S/O 9 Promotion of Employment – Improvement of employment for women
S/O 10 Modernization of educational institutions
S/O 11 Improvement of Administrative Organisation of Educational Institutions
S/O 12 Limit dropping out of school

These calls are based on data obtained from quantitative estimates from the existing situation as well as qualitative characteristics that cannot be portrayed with the use of an indicator.

The weaknesses that have been detected in the educational system are summarized as follows:

       WEAKNESSES THREATS (W/T)
W/T 1 High dropout levels during compulsory education
W/T 2 Limited access of illiterates to education
W/T 3 Low performance by educational staff
W/T 4 Low quality of provided services
W/T 5 Insufficient educational institution infrastructure
W/T 6 Non-modernization of educational system
W/T 7 Educational system passive to change
W/T 8 Limited access to higher education
W/T 9 Insufficient public funding
W/T 10 Lack of information on aspects of vocational placement
W/T 11 Administrative rigidity, concentration of power and lack of evaluation mechanisms
