The project is part of the EU’s Skills4Jobs Programme, implemented to enhance Georgia’s economic resilience and sustainable growth through human capital development and skills matching.
The twinning project is implemented together with German and Estonian counterparts, while the main beneficiary is the National Centre for Educational Quality Enhancement (NCEQE). Within 21 months over 120 EU expert missions will be implemented to support the NCEQE and partners to implement and monitor the new/reformed quality assurance framework of education through improved institutional capacities, effective instruments and procedures, participative governance, and delivery of relevant information to stakeholders and the population.
In the framework of the Twinning project, EU experts will draft guidelines with practical proposals considering the best regulatory practices of implementation of European Qualification Framework (EQF) as well as national circumstances in Georgia, thus ensuring smooth implementation quality recommendations. The project supports strengthening quality assurance of education and training, contributes to the implementation of the new National Qualifications Framework and contributes to improved model of governance, monitoring and dissemination of NCEQE’s outputs.
