Institutions founded by the Government and/or local authorities, which, alongside other goals and activities, offer training for youth as well for other age categories.

  • The Centres for the Professional Development of Adults are located in 12 towns in various parts of Serbia. Their scope is the following: identification of labour market needs and educational priorities, collaboration with local authorities, schools and other relevant institutions, and proposals for adult education programmes and their implementation;
  • The National Agency for Regional Development provides different kinds of support for start-up companies and entrepreneurship on the local level, including professional development of adults.

Publicly Recognized Organizers of Activities (PROA) may include nongovernmental organisations, cultural institutions, associations, open universities, career centres, consulting and training centres, private schools or any other institutions registered for educational programmes implementation, which means they have to be approved by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development, as well as fulfil adult education standards as prescribed by the Law on Adult Education.
