Abstract

The aim of this article is to study how environmental education is integrated into Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Georgia1. The article covers analysis of the relevant documents, study of VET teachers’ attitudes towards integrating environmental education into the VET and their teaching practices. The study was conducted using the qualitative and quantitative methods in 2014 in the capital city of Georgia, Tbilisi. Overall, teachers have positive attitudes towards integrating environmental education in VET. Although teachers’ attitudes are related to their willingness toward implementing environmental topics in their classes to some extent, there is a lack of correspondence between teachers’ attitudes and their assessment practices. The study identified barriers that teachers face in the teaching of environmental issues. Based on the findings the research provides recommendations at policy and delivery levels.
