The meeting was opened by the first Deputy Minister of Education and Science – Ketevan Natriashvili. Moreover, the commission members, various consultants and the representatives of the schools where the program is being piloted attended the working meeting and expressed their opinion.
Compiled portfolios and documents were presented during the meeting, in conjunction with discussing specific cases. The participants of the meeting received the consultations regarding the evaluation process.
The recognition of a non-formal education in the selected educational institutions will be implemented this year, and covers two major areas: the agriculture (supported by the UNDP) and Information technology (supported by the Millennium Challenge Account)
The recognition of non-formal education gives the opportunity to the interested parties to receive a recognition for the received education in a non-formal atmosphere, and accumulate the corresponding qualification credits.
