The project is part of bp’s and its co-venturers' close cooperation with local universities in support of their capacity-building efforts including the improvement of the quality of teaching.

The overall objective of the project is to enhance the quality of teaching in higher educational institutions of Ganja by upgrading the teachers’ knowledge of English and equipping them with new teaching methodologies.

An event was held at the Azerbaijan State Agricultural University to mark the launch of the project.

The project activities started in April 2023 and will continue for one year till April 2024.

The cost of the project, which will be implemented by the British Council, is around AZN150,000 ($88,000).
