The survey and its subsequent analysis on the Youth Labour Market in Albania has been initiated as an answer to a perceived phenomena of mismatch of skills with the available positions in the existing youth market. The current youth unemployment rate – double the national one – is a clear indicator of this situation. The study is supported by Friedrich Ebert Stiftung – Tirana Office, in partnership with National Employment Service.
The study was based first on desk research over the European methodology of analyzing the transition of youth from school to work, completed with data gathering on national level. In our work we focused only on the labour market features of supply and demand of youth skills as perceived by the employers.
