The training on

The project "Support to Social Partners" (SSP) held a training on November 17, 2014 on the topic of "Project Cycle Management". The training took place at the EU Information and Cultural Centre in Pristina. The participants were representatives of the trade unions of metal workers, of the energy sector, and of the public administration.

The training was conducted by Mr. Astrit Rexhaj, from Iron Consulting. Its aim was to inform trade unionists about all the stages of the process one needs to go through in order to draft a project, starting from the development of the idea, to the determination of objectives and activities, to budgeting and to monitoring and evaluation of implementation.

Mr. Rexhaj led the group in a practical exercise where they jointly developed a model for the design of a project about union issues, using the MAPA methodology. The training’s main focus was on these points:

- Identification and prioritization of objectives
Development of work plan
Drafting of budget
Project Monitoring
Project Evaluation

Unionists showed interest in the training, and also shared their thoughts stories about previous experiences in project drafting.
