Dr. Tamila Nutsubidze, a consultant at the Healthcare and Social Issues Committee and the Budget and Finance Committee of the Parliament of Georgia, visited ISET to talk about the challenges of the non-contributory pension system in Georgia.

In the first part of the presentation, Dr. Nutsubidze gave a short overview about social/non-contributory pension schemes. According to existing literature, there are possible connections between social pensions and poverty reduction among old age populations. Dr. Nutsubidze highlighted that in most middle-income countries, dependence on a non-contributory pension is caused by the expansion of a substantial coverage gap due to a reduction in the number of workers who contribute to pension schemes.

“I very much liked the business case-based teaching method. Business cases will be very useful for vocational college students, as real-life examples are much better in inspiring them to start their own business.”“As business cases are based on real-life examples from Georgia, using them in entrepreneurship classes will make them much more amusing for students to attend.”

These are just a few of many comments from teachers who attended a two-day workshop named “Business Case-Based Teaching” held at ISET on the 11th and 12th of January. The workshop was held under the project “Strengthening Entrepreneurial Education and Training in Formal TVET System in Georgia” commissioned by Millennium Challenge Account Georgia (MCA) and implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia.
