The current report is prepared for Jakova Innovation Center (JIC) as part of the EU financed
project ‘’United towards empowering youth, women and disadvantaged groups’’. The report
focuses on skill mismatch and adaptability of work force in Kosovo in general, and in Gjakova
region, aiming to clearly identify hindrances and propose initiatives to reduce the skills gap.
Additionally, the report will constitute the basis to develop training curricula tailored to the
needs of the private sector, developing On-The-Job training (OTJ) program, and offering small
business grants.
