Azerbaijan’s economy has traditionally been dependent on the oil and gas industry. The government recognised the need to diversify and capitalise on their opportunities for growth in other areas – particularly in the emerging hospitality and tourism sector.

With limited hospitality experience in the local population, and a large gap between employers’ needs and the vocational training on offer, the British Council asked People 1st to help create new programmes that would give businesses the skilled workforce they needed.
