A detailed quality evaluation of the project results and recommendations for improvement of CES will provide a basis for further development of project activities.The project results are influential: graduates of Georgian HEI who have acquired strong career management competences will allow the country to have a more flexible and competitive labour market. In a broader perspective, the project will have an impact on the whole HE system of Georgia in terms of increased variety of services for students and making them more goal-oriented and career-oriented. This will, in turn, increase a demand for high-quality studies.
