The Council on the basis of the Project Agreement allows the realization of the goals:
"Implementation of pilot models of selected methods and tools for accreditation and certification." This method should thus provide the greatest possible participation of enterprises and economic associations with the aim of improving the structure of cooperation and focused on the needs of the labor market (competence).
