Assistants for the suppression of peer violence and vandalism in educational institutions in Montenegro will be hired through a pilot project that will be implemented from September 2024 to June 2025, the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare announced today.

The announcement states that this was agreed upon at a meeting between the Minister of Education, Science and Innovation Anđela Jakšić Stojanović and the Minister of Labor and Social Welfare Naida Nišić with representatives of the participants of the program "Assistants for Suppression of Peer Violence and Vandalism in Educational Institutions in Montenegro".

"The interlocutors agreed that the project will be carried out through the Employment Agency and that the project holder will be the Ministry of Education, Science and Innovation with the support of the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare," the announcement states.

Jakšić Stojanović emphasized the importance of conducting activities in a legal manner in order to prevent peer violence in all educational institutions, which will improve the safety of children.

Nišić informed the participants that psychological testing will be organized for all candidates who decide to participate in the project, bearing in mind that the project will be implemented in schools in Montenegro.

"We believe that this project will improve safety in schools, which is one of the problems that, unfortunately, is increasingly present in the education system," said the Ministry of Education and Culture.

On May 10, "Vijesti" announced that the state had trained more than 45 people to prevent violence and vandalism in schools, but that they had not yet had the opportunity to use that knowledge.
