16 November 2021

  • The European Union (EU), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the State Agency on Vocational Education (SAVE) continue support the introduction of innovative approaches in the vocational education system of Azerbaijan.

As part of the EU-funded “VET for the Future” project, for the first time in the country, a 4-week training course on the development of digital learning and assessment resources using the “MOODLE” platform is being implemented.

The training course conducted by Dr. Maria Toro-Troconis provides weekly webinars and tailored learning opportunities for the participants. The course involves a number of leading specialists from 12 vocational centres located in Baku, Ganja, Sheki, Jalilabad, Lankaran, Ismayilli, Mingachevir and Gabala districts.

During the course, the participants learn more about innovative teaching strategies and training methods, the development of a digital curriculum and an assessment plan. At the end of the training course, candidates who will successfully complete the training will receive certificates.

The aim of the course is to support applying digitalisation in vocational education and to contribute development of new resources in this area.

This course 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.
