Career development at the heart of LLL in Azerbaijan
The European Training Foundation (ETF) is engaged in the international debate and research on changing labour markets due to rapid technological developments and post COVID 19 recovery. As a result, career development support is becoming increasingly important for people to manage the frequent and complex transitions within and between learning and work. At the same time, career development support services are challenged to provide better access and innovative ways of delivery to both youth and adults in a lifelong learning perspective.
In Azerbaijan, career guidance features high on the policy agenda as an important segment of improving Vocational Education and Training (VET) provision. VET Law is setting the basis for developing career guidance services in the VET institutions across the country to ensure the students can make career-relevant decisions. The Employment Strategy 2018 -2030 also points out the importance of career guidance services for adults as the basis for the continuous employment of citizens in Azerbaijan. Overall, the objective is the development of modern career guidance services that will ensure equitable access for students, employed and unemployed adults, and different target groups.
ETF is organizing this Webinar to share the latest developments and present good practice examples from the EU Member States on career guidance systems that support career development in a lifelong learning perspective.
The working languages of the event are Azerbaijani and English.
