EU and Georgia Summarize Four Years of Work towards Better Skills for Better Jobs

On 15 November, the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia and the Government of Georgia highlighted the achievement of four years of cooperation to reform the employment and education system in the country.

With EU support, the Government has managed to modernize the vocational education and training system. More than 30,000 Georgians have found employment thanks to new tools developed and thousands have access to improved vocational education.

In addition, the EU has worked with four civil society partners to pilot innovative solutions. This work was directed at tackling employment challenges for people with disabilities and people living in remote areas and developing agro- and family businesses to demonstrate that with the right support, anyone can be employable.

In the coming years, the EU will continue to work together with the country’s government to create perspectives and increase employment among Georgian citizens. Support will focus on improving the link between education and the labor market to ensure that people with improved skills find matching jobs.
