Project Summary, Objectives and Results
The need to improve the international legal services standards and administrative staff training is an immediate priority recognised by the Government of Turkmenistan. The current development of the country’s regulatory framework is restricted also due to a lack of professional capacity in the sector.
The purpose of the project is to provide technical assistance and policy advice to various stakeholders in Turkmenistan to develop human resources and related policies through analysing current and future skills needs in the selected economic sectors, developing new standards, curricula and training programmes, creating a basis for VET qualifications, establishing relevant quality procedures for the VET system and facilitating a development of policy options aimed at widening equal access to VET and lifelong learning.

10 pilot schools in the fields of agriculture, constructions and tourism have been selected, a number of related qualifications identified, training standards and curricula have been developed.
