A workshop entitled ‘Developing University Careers Services in Georgia’ will take place on
Thursday 15th September, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Georgian Embassy, 4 Russell Gardens , London W14 8EZ
Led by Paul Hacking, Martin Pennington and Khatuna Tskhadadze the workshop will focus on a two year multinational project to improve students’ employability by developing and implementing career education services in Georgian universities. They will outline the project achievements such as helping students manage their own career management, improving university teachers’ ability to teach career management and developing university links with employers. There will be an opportunity to try out exercises developed to improve students’ understanding of the world of work and learning.
As part of this EU funded project, Paul and Martin are co-authors of two publications: ‘Managing your Career – A Guide for Students’ and ‘Teaching Career Management – A Guide for HEI staff’, now in use in a number of universities across Georgia. Khatuna is Coordinator for the Students Career Development Center at Tbilisi State University and will give an up-to-date picture of the successful outcomes of the project. Paul and Martin were employed by the University of Essex who were working in partnership with the University of Vilnius, Corvinus University in Budapest and a range of Georgian universities.
Come along and hear about a successful European initiative and enjoy a glass of Georgian wine. Please confirm if you would like to attend this free workshop by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
