The Education Strategy 2018-2025 is the basis of the activities of the institutions in the Republic of North Macedonia in the field of education for the period till 2025. It builds on the current state in the educational system and aims at their gradual development according to the established priorities.
The process of the Strategy development, although being strongly supported by the European Union, followed the principles of: ownership by the GoRM and the agencies directly responsible for its implementation, particularly Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Labour and Social Policy and bodies and institutions responsible for the education, including educational institutions and acceptance by a large scope of stakeholders including public bodies, civil society organisations, social partners and the donor community (development partners).
The strategy is based on clear identification of the main challenges of Education sector, thus ensuring its relevance through careful definition of the priority areas to be addressed within the period till 2025. At the same time, in order to meet the criteria of credibility, only the measures that can be implemented within the planned period are included in the Strategy and supported by a costed Action Plan with identified sources of funding. However, the strategy suggests also longer term objectives which may be considered while programming the next phases of education development in the country.
