6. Education and Training
Last update: 22 January 2021
Educational system in Serbia went through notable reforms in the past decades in opening up and enabling equal access to all ages and all pupils’ categories. Special emphasis was put on individualisation of teaching, development of cross-curricular skills like career skills and entrepreneurship, media and digital literacy as well as on lifelong learning, employability, innovation, cross-border mobilities etc.
Even though the right to education is guaranteed for everyone by the Constitution of the Republic of Serbia reports show that the Roma are underrepresented at all education levels and that the number of NEETs is still high.
Non-formal education has also gained prominence especially with the adoption of the NQF Law, but the development and systematization of this field is still in its infancy and has yet to be developed so that all of its potential can be properly utilized.
