Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 31
By Ilhama Isabalayeva - Trend:
Recognizing experience and skills in non-formal and informal ways will be the first attempt in Azerbaijan in terms of recognizing educational opportunities outside formal school systems, UN Resident Coordinator in Azerbaijan Ghulam Isaczai said.
He made the remarks on Oct. 31 at a conference in Baku.
He said the project “Recognition of Non-Formal and Informal Learning”, jointly implemented with international organizations, is aimed at expanding vocational education opportunities, increasing various labor methods in Azerbaijan, and creating inclusive labor markets.
He noted that it is very important to provide local people with decent jobs and create permanent educational centers.
This will create broader opportunities for people who don’t have university education, he said.
