A few words about myself
As an educationalist, I have always valued my career in the consultancy sector, as I believe it has given me the opportunity to influence policymaking in a way that has pushed forward progress in education. For instance, my experience as a national consultant for Council of Europe on preparing a risk assessment for corruption in education in Albania, has been a woeful experience, in which we (me and two other colleagues from UNESCO and GTC) were able to prepare an important policy paper for the Albanian Government, which directed the Governmental action in tackling corruption in education.
Secondly, my three-year placement as a consultant for Education at Open Society Foundation in Albania (SOROS), has given me the opportunity to prepare policy papers which have been used to influence education reforms in Albania and to help craft educational policies and laws. In particular during this experience I have had the chance to work on and consult the MoE on some important reforms (i.e. Altertext, State Matura, the law for Pre-University education) as well as contribute in some important policies and projects related to school assessment and student attainment.
Additionally, my position as a lecturer at the Public Law Department, and member of the Research Center at Luarasi University in Tirana exposed me to education policy assessment and policy evaluation, areas of endeavor that I addressed further during my master’s course in Education Research at the University of Oxford. During this course I have extended the scope of my knowledge on comparative education policies by studying closely various education systems around the world.
