Kazakhstan: Building future technicians

Improving learning outcomes and career opportunities for students of technical vocational school in Atbasar

  • Status


  • Location Atbasar, Akmola Region, Kazakhstan

Alstom and Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia have come together to help improve career opportunities for students in the technical-vocational school of Atbasar. Funds from Alstom Foundation would be used for upgrading training equipment (in the form of a VR equipped laboratory) and updating program curriculum. The project funds would be used to supply latest equipment so that students, when they leave the school, are better prepared to meet the requirements of the industry.

During the project, Alstom employees will meet with teachers and students of the Atbasar College to give them insights on latest industry trends. The partner NGO would also organize a 2-week long qualification strengthening classes for teachers, conducted by Kazakhstan Welding Association, in partnership with large industrial companies. Teachers would then conduct training sessions for teachers from other vocational technical schools to ensure knowledge transfer.
