Modernizing the carpenter training program in Poti
2 April, 2020:
In collaboration with the “Phazisi” vocational college, we are modernizing the carpenter training in the Georgian harbor town of Poti by the Black Sea. Within the framework of this project, we will be equipping the classrooms with modern machinery, small tools and hand tools, training instructors and revising the teaching and learning materials as well as the curriculum over the next three years. In doing so, we want to increase the practical emphasis of the training program while introducing elements of a dual education system that combines apprenticeships with vocational training. To lay the foundation for the project, we are building a single-story workshop building. In addition to the carpentry workshop, a materials warehouse, a painting workshop and a changing room with a total of 200 m² are planned. The project is being conducted in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
