EU, UNDP and the State Agency on Vocational Education continue with ‘open door’ days in Azerbaijan’s vocational education and training centres

  • The European Union (EU), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the State Agency on Vocational Education (SAVE) continue the series of ‘open door’ days in a number of vocational education and training (VET) centres.

The aim of these ‘open door’ days is to increase awareness about the VET centres and support the successful introduction of VET as one of the preferred education options for youth in Azerbaijan.

The event was organised in partnership with the Jalilabad State Vocational Education Centre. The VET Centre opened its doors to senior students from Jalilabad, parents, teachers and private sector representatives. The Centre organised a guided tour for all visitor groups in line with COVID-19 regulations.

The participants had an opportunity to visit the many different premises of the Centre and get to find out more about current facilities, services, and admission procedures. They also had an opportunity to network with the successful alumni of the VET Centre, join master classes and explore career prospects.

This event is organised as part of the “VET for the Future: Development of VET Providers’ Excellence in Azerbaijan” project which is funded by the EU and implemented by UNDP in partnership with the State Agency on Vocational Education. The project aims to support the modernisation of VET institutions in Azerbaijan to deliver competence-based training in order to increase the attractiveness and labour market relevance of VET.
