Technical support to Goris State Agricultural College

Within the framework of “Modernizing Vocational Education and Training in Agriculture in Armenia” (MAVETA) project, we continue to promote the development of agricultural sector.

In the scope of the MAVETA project “Strategic Development Agency” (SDA) NGO, equipped Goris State Agricultural College with new computers and laboratory equipment.

Due to the provided technical support, the teachers will be able to organize the teaching process by using more creative and interactive techniques. And the availability of laboratory equipment will contribute to the increase of interest and motivation in the profession of milk and dairy technologist.

By using these computers and the laboratory equipment the college students will have an opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills to become more competitive specialists in the labor market.
