EU-funded project improves skills of Azerbaijani textile teachers


A ten-day training programme on Azerbaijan’s textile sector, the most promising in the country, was organised for textile teachers, instructors and field experts, as a part of the EU funded project “Support to the establishment of Regional Industrial Vocational Education and Training Competence Centre in Ganja”.

The training conducted by a designer and an expert in the production of commercial clothing took place in the new sewing workshop of the Ganja State Vocational Education Centre on Industry and Technology. The programme included sessions on current trends and demands in the textile sector, the production of market-oriented products and the use of modern equipment and electronic simulation programmes.The participants also learned how to start up a textile business – from an initial idea to a commercially successful clothing line.

Later, they will share their newly acquired knowledge with students and other teachers who will be involved in activities to generate income for the VET Centre.

This expert training programme was initiated by UNDP and the State Agency on Vocational Education as part of the EU funded project “Support to the establishment of Regional Industrial Vocational Education and Training Competence Centre in Ganja” (2017-2020). The project aims to help strengthen and modernise Azerbaijan’s vocational education and training system. It has already provided equipment for improving the facilities and activities of the VET textile centre in Ganja.
