AlbVET: Skills Development in Albania

«I am who I am today because Swisscontact believed in me more than I believed in myself," says Violeta Ruci»

Violeta runs the private training centre "Leta" in Berat, a small town in central Albania. In April one of her students won the first competition for hairdressers in the Western Balkans. Violeta is one of many Swisscontact partners in its efforts spanning 20 years to support vocational education reform in Albania. In June 2014 Swisscontact closed out the SDC-financed AlbVET project after completing three phases as planned.
