Kapı said, “We work with a 100-person expert instructor team in cooperation with İŞKUR, universities, Provincial Directorate of National Education, professional chambers, non-governmental organizations, public institutions and organizations. Our Employment Unit brings together graduates of our courses and employers. First of all, we fill in the resume form. In line with the job demands from the private sector, we direct our qualified employees to work. Our branches that train intermediate staff for the textile, tourism, pastry, floristry, barista and industry sector attract great attention. We have directed 2 thousand 768 people to work in various fields so far. 807 people among these people settled for work. Our unit also acts as a bridge for job seekers who do not attend the courses at the Vocational Factory. "We are continuing our efforts to remedy unemployment during the pandemic period when unemployment rates are increasing."
After the trainees complete their training, they have a certificate approved by the Ministry of Education. Vocational Factory, which suspended courses during the global epidemic, continues its preparations with a plan to open courses after September 1.
