On 2 July, Baku will host the ‘Secret of the Profession’ festival dedicated to vocational education. The event, held at the ‘Icherisheher’ State Historical-Architectural Reserve, is jointly organised by the European Union, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the State Agency for Vocational Education.
The purpose of the event is to boost the visibility of vocational education and training (VET) in Azerbaijan, increase the awareness of youth, parents, and stakeholders about vocational education, and encourage their involvement in the VET process.
The festival includes crafts exhibitions, master classes and various activities by students from vocational schools representing Baku and different regions, specialising in tourism, industry, agriculture, ICT and the food industry. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to take part in fun games and quizzes as part of the WorldSkills Azerbaijan platform.
The event is supported by the EU-funded project ‘VET for the future development of VET providers’ excellence in Azerbaijan’ implemented by UNDP.
