Preparing people for tomorrow’s skills in Armenia: Work-Based Learning strategy in Armenia
Work-Based Learning (WBL) has great potential to ease the transition from education and training to work. Evidence suggests that countries with a strong VET and work-based learning / apprenticeship system have lower levels of youth unemployment. The Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Armenia has developed, in cooperation with different stakeholders and with the support of the ETF, a “Concept Paper and road map for development of work-based learning (WBL) in Armenia for 2019-2025”. The Concept Paper was approved by the National Council for VET Development in June 2019.
The purpose of the seminar is to discuss the latest policy developments in the area of work-based learning in Armenia, to share experiences that are being implemented and to prepare next steps.
Objectives of the Seminar:
- To share with key stakeholders strategic and policy developments related to WBL in Armenia;
- To deepen understanding of the challenges and opportunities for further development of work-based learning/apprenticeships systems;
- To share experiences of implementation of work-based learning programmes and learn from current practices and examples.
