Opportunities for Vocational Education
Vocational Education Project graduates find work through partnerships
As part of an ongoing attempt to assist vocational education centers (VEC) by developing and improving public-private part-nerships, USAID’s Vocational Education Project established a strong collaborative relationship with a company that helped nearly forty VEC graduates find jobs.
The project recently established a relationship with Energo-Pro Georgia Ltd, a company involved in electricity generation and distribution. Use of a special testing process to identify match skills with company needs led to 37 VEC graduates receiving offers of immediate employment. The new employees will in-stall electricity meters and new electricity lines throughout Georgia. As a result of this success, Energo-Pro is interested in hiring additional qualified graduates for various skilled job open-ings.
The Vocational Education Project seeks and develops success-ful partnerships with local businesses, industries, and various stakeholders. This successful effort highlights the importance of private sector involvement to ensure that VECs offer demand-driving training courses. Successful partnerships like this will help ensure a successful future and sustainability for the voca-tional education system in Georgia. To date, 5,000 people have graduated from four USAID-supported VECs.
