In Lori Region 40 career orientation professionals have been trained, and by February 2016 the team of trained professionals will provide services to all the communities in the region.

“Professional orientation starts with general education. Every school should have 1-2 trained specialists,” said Haykuhi Gevorgyan, Head of the Youth Professional Orientation Centre, at the Media Center hosted discussion which was held in cooperation with Vanadzor Civic Youth Center.

The second level, Haykuhi Gevorgyan continued, involves nongovernmental organizations that are supposed to raise awareness. “COAF is opening Smart centers in Lori to ensure that young men living even in the most remote villages will have an access to any information they need.”

The society and every citizen must help young people with advice or actions to choose a profession – “it is a part of legal awareness”, believes Sasoun Hambardzumyan, Head of Vocational Education and Training Division of the Armenian Ministry of Education and Science.

“Over the recent 3-4 years the Ministry teamed up with the Professional Orientation Center opened orientation centers in twelve regional state colleges. Local professionals assist the young with consultancy,” Hambardzumyan said.

Haykuhi Gevorgyan told the Media Center about the activities of the Orientation Center: “Now we prioritize how a student’s personality is revealed and how he becomes better informed. At the next level, the adaptation phase our partners World Vision Armenia and COAF are there to help us by organizing study visits to enterprises and educational institutions.”

Sasoun Hambardzumyan went on to speak on the availability of study materials relating to vocational education and training sector.

“10-12 manuals, guides have been published since 2009. Over the last six years 72 Armenian books, methodological manuals, guides have been prepped and published. All these materials are available at vetarmenia.am and mkuzak.am.”

Hambardzumyan and Gevorgyan urged the young to come together to inform their friends about the possibilities their region has. Thus, they will fight against the increasing number of economically inactive youth and internal migration.

The series of discussions with regional civic youth centers aim to raise awareness about vital issues for the youth in regions, help young people voice about the current challenges and find possible solutions, collaborating with state structures.
