In order to address the imbalance between supply and demand for labour force in the BPC Gorazde and their competencies with a view to enhance the competitiveness of local companies and employment opportunities for local labour force, in late 2009, ALDI signed a "Memorandum of Understanding between the stakeholders from vocational and technical education and training in Bosnian - Podrinje Canton Gorazde. Within this cooperation, ALDI created a report ''Qualified more than you think" for EU VET 3 Project.

All previous activities have resulted in a reference to the signing of the Cooperation Agreement signed with the Federal Employment Institute and USAID-Sida FIRMA Project within the framework of the project "Vocational training and employment of sewers of vehicle upholstery for needs of the company Prevent Gorazde". The project is aimed at decrease the imbalances in the labour market in the Bosnia-Podrinje Canton area in relation to supply and demand, through vocational training of unemployed persons registered at the Employment Service BPC Register. One of the key results of the project is that 700 participants are successfully trained and certified to work as sewers of vehicle upholstery, through the process of professional and theoretical training, and afterwards they are employed in the company Prevent Gorazde, which ultimately affected the decrease in the number of unemployed in Bosnian-Podrinje Canton by 10 %. In addition to the aforementioned project results, project has a broader significance, because of the established partnership and communication between the world of work field and the world of education.

Since mentioned project made a turn into active employment policies in the whole BiH, ALDI has prepared a similar project that was approved by the Delegation of the EU to BiH and within this project an agreement is signed again between: Government of the BPC Gorazde, Secondary Vocational School "Dzemal Bijedic" Gorazde, Employment Service BPC Gorazde and the Association of Employers BPC Gorazde, relevant to the strengthening of institutional and legislative framework in the field of employment and adult education.

Through implementation of this project, the system of education and training of adults is improved, and it further influenced the reduction of imbalances in the labour market, which led to a reduction in number of unemployed persons and in employment of socially vulnerable people. The positive effect is reflected in economy development and creation of favourable environment through education of new workers' skills that will be essential to the local economy in the coming period. As a part of this project, analysis of the situation and needs in the labour market in BPC Gorazde is created, which identified five professions that are the most demanded by manufacturing companies covered by analysis. After that, five new training programs and modules for adult education are created in accordance with economy needs where (VET) model of vocational training is applied for 200 unemployed persons registered in the Employment Service BPC Gorazde Register with a view to reduce unemployment of vulnerable categories of the population through acquisition of knowledge and skills for those there is a demand in labour market and certification of 100 employees who work in places in respect of which they do not possess adequate qualification. The training process includes nearly 400 people.
