The development objective of the Technical and Vocational Education Modernization Project for Kazakhstan is to raise the relevance, quality, and efficiency of technical and vocational education (TVE) through an improved policy framework and institutional capacity. There are three components to the project. The first component is developing standards and quality assurance for TVE. The second component is strengthen governance, management, and financing for TVE. The third component is strengthening skills delivery capacity of TVE institutions.
The project is expected to bring long-term benefits through the improved employability of graduates as the quality and relevance of technical and vocational education (further as TVE) improve, and the supply of specialists demanded in the labor market increases.
The project will raise the rate of returns to TVE as the skills and competencies of the graduates of the “new” TVE system are significantly enhanced and match the requirements of the dynamic labor market; and contribute to increased workforce productivity and competitiveness.
