Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC) launches the new project!
The EU funded project Learn, Exercise, Achieve, Receive, Network for Employment! (LEARN for Employment!) aims at promoting an efficient transition model from education to the labor market largely supporting increased employment, social integration, and decreased poverty and vulnerability levels.
36-month project implemented in six regions of Georgia: Imereti, Guria, Racha-Lechkhumi, Adjara, Shida Kartli, and Kakheti has two specific objectives: 1) to contribute to continuous/life-long career guidance and to the development of employment services and 2) to contribute to increased PPP through labor market needs assessments, demand-driven education, WBL and apprenticeships in the maritime and tourism sectors.
Within the project, 3,240 job seekers will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to apply to jobs in the open labor market; among them, at least 720 beneficiaries will participate in VET, on-the-job training, and internship programs, and a minimum of 50% of them will become employed.
Disadvantaged youth, IDPs, PwD, NEETs, and other vulnerable groups such as job-seekers, the long-term unemployed, and learners at all levels of education and Georgian citizens at large will benefit from the action in terms of increased accessibility of LLL opportunities, improved employability, public and private career guidance, and employment services.
The EU-funded project “Learn, Exercise, Achieve, Receive, Network for Employment! (LEARN for Employment!)“ is implemented by Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC), Telavi Education Development and Employment Center (TEDEC), and Employment Agency of the Autonomous Region of Adjara (EAARA).
