Policies for Human Capital Development: Bosnia and Herzegovina. An ETF Torino Process Assessment
McBride, Vincent
European Training Foundation
This European Training Foundation (ETF) assessment provides an external, forward-looking analysis of human capital development issues in Bosnia and Herzegovina and vocational education and training (VET) policy responses from a lifelong learning perspective. It identifies challenges related to education and training policy and practice that hinder the development and use of human capital. It takes stock of these challenges and puts forward recommendations on possible solutions to address them. These assessments are a key deliverable of the Torino Process, an initiative launched by the ETF in 2010 aimed at providing a periodic review of VET systems in the wider context of human capital development and inclusive economic growth. The purpose of the assessments is to provide a reliable source of information for planning and monitoring education and training policies for human capital development. The assessments are also intended to initiate a dialogue on the programmes and policies supported by the European Union (EU) and other donors. The ETF assessments rely on evidence collected from the countries using a standardised reporting template (national reporting framework) in a Torino Process country report. The assessment starts with a brief description of the strategic plans and policy priorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Section 1). It then presents an overview of issues related to the development and use of human capital in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Section 2), before moving on to a discussion of problems in this area, which in the view of the ETF require immediate attention (Section 3). Section 4 provides the overall conclusions of the analysis. Annex 1 provides a summary of the recommendations in the report. [This report was prepared in the framework of the Torino Process 2018-20.]
