22 October 2021

  • The European Union (EU), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the State Agency on Vocational Education (SAVE) continue support to boost the attractiveness of the VET system of Azerbaijan.

With the support of the EU -funded “VET for the Future” project, the Baku Vocational Education Centre on Industry and Innovations, and the Ganja State Vocational Education Centre on İndustry and Technologies are presented in the “BAKU BUILD: 26th Azerbaijan International Construction Exhibition” at the EXPO Center. 

This initiative is organised as part of the “VET for the Future: Development of VET Providers’ Excellence in Azerbaijan” project, funded by the EU and implemented by UNDP in partnership with SAVE. 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.

During the exhibition, these VET Centres demonstrate their resources on the related areas, participate in B2B (business-to-business) meetings with the private sector companies, and learn more about current trends in the market. The director of the SAVE has visited the exhibition and shared information about the ongoing partnerships to promote vocational education.

The exhibition involves around 150 local and international companies in the areas from architecture and design to construction equipment and technologies from 11 countries including Czech Republic, Russian Federation, Turkey, and United Arab Amirates. 

As a follow up of this exhibition, the project plans to hold ‘open door’ days and roundtables with some exhibitor companies to discuss further collaboration opportunities.
