Evidence of effectiveness
The instrument was developed and exists as intended. 29 Sector Councils were established in total and 7 Sector Agreements signed. Sector Councils identify the problem in skills and qualifications, provide evidence and propose solutions to overcome barriers. The Sector Agreements define ways and approaches to solve the problem in specific qualification needs. Key success factor so far is establishing vocational qualification scheme.
Engagement of stakeholders
There is a body called Conference of Sector Councils Chairmen (Stálá konference předsedů sektorových rad), which meets annually to coordinate activities and outputs of Sector Councils. The role of Sector Councils in the system of vocational qualification is set by the law (Act 179/2006). Its regulation (regulation of the Ministry of Education, No. 208/2007) defines the responsibilities of Sector Councils, as well as the cooperation with other bodies within the vocational qualification system.
