Summary

From 28 to 30 April 2017, the Mission in Kosovo facilitated a workshop and provided its expertise in the process of accreditation and validation of the Kosovo Academy for Public Safety (KAPS) vocational education competence-based curricula for basic training of police, police inspectorate, customs, fire-fighters, and correctional and probation services.

The workshop gathered 32 senior representatives of relevant local institutions to develop an infrastructure for accreditation of the new formal vocational education training for law enforcement providers. Experts from KAPS, Ministry of Education, National Qualification Authority (NQA), police and other public safety agencies, alongside those from the Mission and the EU Twinning Project, supported the KAPS to draft institutional self-evaluation report, standardize its vocational curricula, define professional standards based on European Qualification Framework criteria, and prepare the application for institutional accreditation. This new reviewed curricula will undergo the national accreditation process including the quality control from NQA, after which the KAPS would become the only accredited formal vocational education training institution licensed as a public safety provider.
