Leadership and Skills Development Programme

The existing skills-mismatch between education and industry needs in the furniture and wood processing sector of Bosnia and Herzegovina is putting a severe burden on companies. The Leadership and Skills Development Project intends to improve this situation through the following two interventions: A) the Leadership and Skills Development Training LSDT for middle management as well as trainers/teachers; B) the introduction of new approaches for a sustainable interaction between the related governmental bodies, the training providers and selected technical industries based on the Swiss experience.

New Leadership Training Programme for Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Center for Development and Cooperation of the Bern University of Applied Sciences, is launching a new Leadership and Skills Development Training for the furniture and wood processing industries of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The training is part of a project called “Skills for Jobs”, which is implemented by the Agency for SME Development of Republika Srpska.

The project is supported by The Swiss Confederation, through its Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
