The British Council and the UKEmbassy open a Learning Hub in Barda.

The British Council told Report that the Learning Hub will be opened at a public school No 4 in Barda and will expand the network of already existing 17 hubs in Azerbaijan. This year, we have established new learning hubs within the IDP schools in Absheron, Zagatala, Tartar, and Beylagan with the necessary high-quality teaching and learning resources, technologies, and self-study materials. The British Council has designed and developed the program with funding from the UK Government. Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the British Embassy in Azerbaijan will support us in the implementation of this program.

The Learning hubs: Improved Skills for Stronger Societies is a three-year program that will develop young people’s skills so that they can build confidence and have better access to educational and career pathways in the future. The Learning Hubs program builds upon the success of the British Council’s English Clubs initiative that took place between 2016-2019.
