Establishing dual-like VET pilots in agriculture and tourism in the Gabala, Ismayilly and Gakh districts

Project Description
“Establishing dual–like vocational education and training (VET) pilots in agriculture and tourism in Gabala, Ismayilli and Gakh districts” (ED VET) project is co-funded by the European Union and German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation, and being implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with the duration from September 2017 to June 2020. The pilot project aims at increasing attractiveness and labour-market relevance of VET in the fields of agriculture and tourism through implementing German dual-like VET approach.
The overall objective of the project is to foster a transition from a supply-driven to a demand-driven VET. Particularly, this will be achieved through supporting three VET centres in establishing sound and enduring linkages with the private sector, introducing labour-market oriented curricula and practical learning phases, as well as capacities building of educational staff with close cooperation with employers.
