SDC Director General Visits Swisscontact Ukraine Project

On 28 May 2021, Ms. Patricia Danzi, SDC Director General and Beate Elsässer, Deputy Head of the Department of Cooperation with Eastern Europe visited the Kyiv Regional Higher Vocational School of Construction.

The school participates in the Public Private Partnership to Improved Plumbing Education in Ukraine project EdUP which fosters vocational education training (VET) quality by introducing new ways of inclusive learning. The goal is to make VET in Ukraine more resilient and aligned with the changes in the labour market, so that youth have better employment prospects.

"Through the strengthened capacities of the participating VET schools, graduates become more employable and meet business sector expectations,” said Sonja Loosli, Swisscontact Ukraine, after the visit.

EdUP is implemented by Swisscontact with the financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SDC and Geberit Trading LLC, and the institutional support of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.
