The virtual event brought together 300 senior students from Ganja, parents, teachers, also the representatives of SAVE and the Ganja City Education Department.
The participants had an opportunity to learn more about the ongoing modernisation of the VET system, received information about admission procedures as well as facilities and services, which are currently available in the Ganja VET Centre. They also discussed challenges and VET career opportunities and perspectives in the regions.
A survey was also shared during the event to learn more about the public attitude towards VET as a choice in education and the findings of this survey will be used to plan future project activities to increase attractiveness of VET for youth.
The attendees had an opportunity to win gifts by participating in VET quizzes.
