One of the measures to fight unemployment is to organize quality and specialized skill trainings so that they enable reallocation of labour among different economic sectors. On that basis the action intends to fill the gap between the demand and availability of skills by providing skill trainings for deficit occupations as required by the market. Attention will be also given to the further strengthening of the local employment partnership through inclusion of all stakeholders in the local labour market within the working group while in parallel setting up the activity plan and building their knowledge.
