Azerbaijan, Baku, May 10 / Trend /
A SYSLAB Center began working in Baku on a joint project of the UNDP and the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Azerbaijan called 'Innovation and the development of employment', a statement by the ministry released on Friday said.
The main purpose of the center is to organize training courses for young people on how to look for jobs and network. The new center will also assist highly qualified personnel in the search for jobs through the use of new techniques.
The SYSLAB center's first course will include 40 young people. A four-month-long course will build the skills of young people in hopes of giving them easier access to the job market.
The pilot project 'Innovation and career development' began in June 2011 with support from SYSLAB International and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway.
"It is expected that this project will be expanded in Baku and will be implemented it in two other major cities of the country, Sumgait and Ganja in 2013-14. Later on, other new centers will be combined into a single network," the statement said.
The Baku center plans to conduct training programs for 80 job seekers during the year and assist them in expanding their opportunities.
