The regional program “Private Sector Development and Technical Vocational Education and Training in the South Caucasus”, implemented by GIZ, aims at improving the preconditions for a sustainable economic development of selected labour market relevant sectors. For the country component Azerbaijan, the selected sectors are tourism and agriculture.
The programme makes use of the integrated approach of German development cooperation in employment promotion. It is addressing both the supply and demand side of the labour market to lay a better foundation for employment. Development assistance is focussing primarily on involving the private sector in vocational education and training.
To do this, the programme operates in three intervention fields:
Intervention field 1 aims to strengthen capacities for improving competitiveness in the sectors relevant for employment. In the case of Azerbaijan it is the tourism and agriculture sectors.
In intervention field 2, private and public actors will cooperate to improve the labour-market relevance of selected training courses for these sectors.
Intervention field 3 will seek to strengthen the regional and international exchange of experience in sustainable private sector development and dual-oriented vocational training.
