Within the framework of the eTwinning project, a contact seminar on “eTwinning for Vocational Education” was organized on November 24-26, 2021 in Tirana, Albania.
The purpose of the event was to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies of educators in vocational education institutions in accordance with the concept of lifelong learning and the requirements of the labor market, to train them as independent, creative individuals.
Rashad Chopsiyev, a teacher at the Baku State Vocational Education Center for Industry and Innovation represented Azerbaijan at the international event. Teachers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lithuania, Cyprus, Estonia and Turkey also took part in the seminar. In order to improve the quality of vocational trainings, 16 trainings, discussion panels and speeches were organized in 4 parallels for the participants of the event.
During the event, the Azerbaijani representative created a joint educational project with teachers from Albania, Cyprus and Estonia on "Climate Volunteers from different schools". One of the main goals of the 7-month joint international lesson model is to build knowledge, skills and competencies on how to mitigate the effects of global climate change and develop solutions to adapt to them.
The eTwinning Plus program organizes various local and international seminars, conferences and professional development programs to increase the knowledge and skills of educators participating in the project during the year. These events are held in foreign countries and usually last for 2-3 days. Every year, 18-20 teachers from Azerbaijan gain the right to participate in international events in accordance with their project activities.
At the same time, we would like to note that the eTwinning Plus project has been implemented by the Education System Informatization Department under the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan since 2016.
