Aims and objectives of the project
For several years in Slovenia there has been a need for persons in the post of GPM (source: Employment Service of Slovenia). For this occupation there is no list of competences required or appropriate training.
Good examples which we would want to transfer to Slovenia we found in Spain and Portugal. The results in the frame of the project will support also the Programme for new knowledge and skills as well as posts with better functioning of the market due to higher competition of knowledge and skills among employees, with more qualified work force.
Aim of the project is to fill in the gap in the vertical structure of the training for trade sector with GPM profile. Project objectives are:
• acquisition of Europe – comparable occupational competences for the GPM post,
• input of obtained foreign knowledge and experience in Slovenian system,
• establishment of training system for staff in the post of GPM in Slovenia,
• programme of trainings for the work of GPM in retail,
• initiative for occupational standard and national occupational qualification for GPM.

Aim of the project is to fill in the gap in the vertical structure of the training for trade sector with GPM profile.
