Tea Kakabadze, a resident of Batumi, is currently doing an internship as a financial assistant at the Financial Department of Hilton Batumi Hotel.
A few months ago, Tea addressed the Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC) in order to acquire new professional skills and get employed. The EDEC Employment Consultant assessed her skills and interests, based on which a short-term vocational training program for a financial assistant was developed especially for her. Within the framework of the program, Tea attended a 200-hour training course at Hilton Batumi Hotel. The program included both theoretical and practical training. At the moment, Tea is completing a 120-hour paid internship at the same hotel.
“I learned about the program from a friend. As I looked for more information, I realized that this opportunity should not be missed. I have been interested in accounting for a long time. While talking to my friends I mentioned that I would be happy to work in the financial direction, however, this conversation would always be followed by discussing the difficulties of the profession, and to be honest I was reluctant because of it. I finally realized that if you have the desire and willpower, you can learn everything, ” – says Tea.
Short Term Vocational Training Program for a Financial Assistant was implemented by the Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC) within the Employment Agency of the Autonomous Republic of Adjara (EAARA)’s sub-program “Providing Employment Support” – “Providing Vocational Training and Employment Support to the Persons with Disabilities”.
