Donation of equipment to the Center for Educational Services

On April 23, 2019, at the premises of the Center for Educational Services, the Chairman of the AADF Board of Trustees, Mr. Michael Granoff and Minister of Education, Sports and Youth, Besa Shahini, sign the Donation Act for the equipment and programs for this center. The parties were also introduced with the assessment¬† procedure conducted with the new equipment. This initiative is part of the AADF project in co-operation with the MoESY with the aim to strengthen the Center for Educational Services in order to modernize and increase the capacity and quality of services. The project, launched in October 2018, with the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the AADF and the MoESY, will complete its first phase by the end of 2019. The AADF donated to CES the equipment with a total value of US$ 147,000, and this is only a part of this joint intervention, as AADF has contracted Cambridge Assessment International Education experts with 150 years of experience in over 160 countries. CAIE’s experts will identify and propose strategic interventions to empower CES based on the world’s best practices in the field of testing. AADF highly appreciates the close co-operation with the MASR, which has considered the Foundation as the “Strategic Partner in Education”, and we believe that together we can implement interventions that push the improvement of the Albanian education system rapidly.
