Description of programme
"IPA Sectoral Programme Montenegro"

Education, employment and social policy are three areas that contain the key elements necessary to achieve sustainable, smart and inclusive growth in Montenegro. These areas are significantly interconnected and interventions, especially reforms, in these fields need to be implemented in parallel . In this way, they will have a deep impact not only on the Montenegrin labour market, but also on the achievements in overall economy, in line with the Economic Reform Programme (ERP) and the Employment and Social Policy Reform Programme (ESRP).

This Sectoral Operational Programme (SOP) will contribute to implementation of the ESRP which has been adopted by the Government on 26 June 2015. It will support participation in the labour market and  improve opportunities for vulnerable groups in society through the implementation of social inclusion policies and will address the mismatch between the skills demanded in the labour market and those offered by the education and training system. Thus the Sectoral Operational Programme will contribute to the increase in the employment rate of the Montenegrin population aged 15–64 from 47.4% (2013) to 53% -56% (2020) and strengthen the cooperation between labour market and educational institutions.

It is important to point out that the issue of social inclusion of Roma and Egyptian (RE) population will be covered through activities within all three actions foreseen in the SOP.
