“Horizons” Dual Education Program
About the program
The “Horizons” Dual Education Program, which is targeted at human capital development, envisages developing and introducing in general education institutions a new educational model that will be hinged on the individual capacities of every student and the peculiarities and opportunities of the particular community. The introduction and application of this model of dual education in the provincial settlements of Armenia will provide students with the opportunity to gain skills and reinforce their professional capacities by combining the theoretical knowledge, received in general education institutions with practical work within local companies.
Taking into consideration the unique histories, occupations and life in every community, the features of every community and the local opportunities arising from all this, we are certain that consistent implementation of these kinds of educational programs will help develop the labor market and meet the demand in the provinces which, in its turn, will help make life more engaging for young people.
The “Horizons” educational program will be piloted in 2022 in the fields of vinification and viticulture for 9th-12th grade students in 11 settlements of Armavir and Aragatsotn.
The beneficiaries of the program will have an opportunity to study the culture of vinification and viticulture on the spot, combining theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as incorporate it into general education, make studying more interesting and meaningful and develop professional skills.
