The EU financed project „Modernizing Vocational Education and Training (VET) Centres in Azerbaijan“ is focusing on the introduction of a dual oriented VET System in selected sectors in the VET schools of the Gabala/Ismayilly/Gakh region.

Result 1: Strategic positioning of the 4 VET centers developed

the selected VET schools will be supported in elaborating a strategic concept, which will contribute to a better positioning towards prospective students and the private sector in line with strategic goals of the government in the field of VET and economic objectives.

Result 2: Strategic partnerships with the private sector (dual-like VET) in the 4 VET centers established.

The project will jointly with the schools and the private sector identify suitable cooperation formats, in line with the strategic framework as developed under Result 1.

Result 3: Competence-based curricula and learning materials for the VET centers in 2 sectors with high labour market relevance  developed and piloted
