Sector reports - Further education and skills: Kazakhstan

Recognising that human capital is a basic driver of the country’s innovation and increased productivity, Kazakhstan has made technical and vocational education training (TVET) a high priority. A fast growing, middle-income nation, Kazakhstan aims to become an industrialised country by 2025, but low workforce productivity and huge gaps in skills are major impediments to increased competitiveness. After more than a decade of sustained economic growth, Kazakhstan requires a new generation of skilled technical and professional citizens to ensure the country’s stable and sustainable development. TVET institutions have a very important role in Kazakhstan’s education system in terms of being able to deliver the skilled and qualified labour force the country needs to develop and successfully compete in a global environment.

This special report provides an overview of government policy, reform efforts and the institutional framework for skills delivery, and examines the market size, structure, and the quality and scale of TVET services currently available. While providing perspective and insight into the TVET system in Kazakhstan, the report highlights the challenges and opportunities for international training providers, suppliers and educators in this dynamic market.

The government of Kazakhstan is well aware of the high correlation between skills and sustainable growth, and as result skills development reform remains an area of crucial importance. The government believes that it is essential to improve TVET in order to develop the middle class and ensure stable economic development. ”
