Recent developments in Montenegro
This year Montenegro’s government adopted a new Adult Education Plan for 2019/2022 period, which is based on the guidelines, recommendations and resolutions of the EU council. In the new plan, adult education becomes integrated in the national database of the Montenegrin education and information system for the first time. The database contains data on accredited AE providers, available training programmes, active courses, issued certificates, trainees, tracing of learners upon the completion of courses and other data useful for statistical analysis and assessment of the situation in adult education sector. The database allows the country to concentrate on the implementation of new funds. It also leaves Montenegro better prepared to deal with the challenge of validating and recognizing prior learning. These aims are also helped by the application of European guidelines and contemporary learning models in national practice.
