Project Summary, Objectives and Results
Located in the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection’s (MLSP) employment department in Bishkek, the project will work closely with the national and regional employment offices of the MLSP as well as with private and national training providers who will be in charge of implementing the new training programmes in further vocational training. The project initiated a close cooperation between representatives of the Kyrgyz economy (enterprises) and selected providers of further training in order to make the training programmes more responsive to the demands of the workplace. The activities in this regard were part of the overall strategy, “sustainable economic development”, of the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development. Selected public and private training providers were provided with new curricula of a modular structure. Besides this, the German side supported the training providers with facilities to ensure the quality of the training courses. As a result of this intervention, the ability of the students to find an adequate job in the Kyrgyz economy should be enhanced.
The overall aim of the project is to enhance the ’employability’ of future graduates of the new further vocational training programmes in Kyrgyzstan.
