Education Committee meets the head of Accreditation Agency

Prishtina, March 17, 2022 – The American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo held a meeting together with the Education Committee. Present at this meeting were: Shkëlzen Gërxhaliu from the Accreditation Agency, Vildane Kelmendi from Cacttus Education, Petrit Bushi from AAB University, Edmond Muhaxheri from A.U.K and Suat Berisha from Universum.

In this meeting were discussed many necessary topics about accreditation for higher education. Also during the meeting various discussions were opened to facilitate the work and to be more correct in various details about accreditation.

International experts were part of the discussion during this meeting, because all of the members agreed that Kosovo has many perfect experts who can do their job by themselves and the work should not be done by international experts who are not properly aware of the law in Kosovo.

Gërxhaliu stated that the program “Follow up Procedures” will be present mainly with the implementation of recommendations by experts. One of the key points to be developed by the Accreditation Agency is that they should start to be more cooperative with the Chambers in general for better results in future projects.

In this meeting were discussed some more detailed problems mentioned by the participants themselves such as: time of implementation, refusal of accreditation, inequality between state and private institutions and so on. All these were reviewed by Shkëlzen Gërxhaliu in as much detail as possible on his part with the hope that soon every detail will be functional.
