Aim of the project: Improved skills and capacities of farmers in selected areas resulting in improved farming productivity and livelihood of the rural population through contributing to the development of high quality vocational training and advisory services


The project intends to establish a twinning arrangement between HAFL and ASAU in order to empower ASAU to provide in a long run support to VET schools in technical and methodological aspects of VET and advisory service. Together with ASAU pilot projects in VET will be developed, implemented and evaluated. Furthermore a concept for advisory services at VET schools will be developed, piloted and evaluated by quantitative and qualitative means.
