Under the auspices of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Association of HR Professionals and the International Digital Institute (IDI), in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia, are launching two new projects to support the development of vocational education.
The first project, implemented by the Association of HR Professionals, envisages the development of documents that will help vocational education institutions to strengthen their organizational and HR systems. This, in turn, will help create an educational environment that meets the standards for authorization in colleges.
As for the second project, it will mainly focus on the formation of a future vocational education institution in which digital innovations ("VET of Tomorrow" (IDI) will be introduced.
