2.2. Justification of study program for employment market
The justification of the study programme is divided into the justification of the labour market in general and the justification to the professional orientated labour market.
The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology specified in the Education Strategy Plan 2011-2016 to improve the performance of the education system through changes and to modernize the curriculum, teaching and learning and assessment. “Continuing efforts will be made in enhancing quality in the system through systematic attention to the curriculum and intensive teacher development. (…) An on-going theme of government is a clear perspective of EU membership and thus an education system that meets European and international standards” (MEST, 2011, p. 48). Also in the Sub-Sector Programme Objectivities the Ministry also determined among other objectivities to develop quality academic and professional higher and tertiary education and research supporting social and economic development (MEST; 2011).
„Ensure that curricula reflect labour market needs that would support employability of graduates and meet employers needs and improve the image of higher education of Kosovo and be gender sensitive“ (cf. MEST, 2011, p. 124).
The master programme “Education in Health Care” considers requirements of European standard in higher education programmes, developed employees with a professional knowledge in steering health care facilities and to implement research based social and economic strategies. The new master programme Management in Health Services and Health Institutions is in line with the labour market of Kosovo.
The new programme involves the WHO strategy for the education of nurses and midwives in the region of SEE. Health 21 goals also fully meets the requirements of EU standards, as well as based on the experience of the modern education with an advanced system of quality assurance on the theoretical and practical work, by offering quality professional qualifications in the field of Nursing. The Department of Nursing and Midwifery aims to set European standards in the field of professional qualification in Kosovo.
