The main goal of the project is to enhance the economic development through the competitive growth of the private sector from 2014-2017.
The program supports the upgrading and development of VET proposals which are market oriented and demanded by the private sector.
Within the framework of the project “Master classes in TVET for 3 countries of South Caucasus” 6 months’ international practical training courses for leaders were developed.
