ADB provides $10 mn grant for Kyrgyz vocational education

Feb '07
ADB is providing a US$10 million grant to help the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic address mismatches in the country's labor market.

The grant, from ADB's Asian Development Fund, will support a project that aims to reform the primary vocational education (PVE) system and boost skills training opportunities for adults and out-of-school youth.

“The current vocational education system is neither responsive to labor markets nor cost-effective,” says Wolfgang Kubitzki, an ADB Project Economist. “While there is a growing need for skilled workers, graduates from vocational schools have difficulty finding jobs because they lack employable skills.”

At the same time, skills training for adults and out-of-school youth are limited to urban areas, leaving those in rural areas without access.

The project will help the Government reform the PVE system, which consists of 112 schools, to make it more modern, entrepreneurial, and flexible to adjust to the requirements of the labor market.

It will rehabilitate and upgrade facilities in up to 20 of the schools, rehabilitate up to 20 dormitories, and provide training equipment for basic priority skill areas such as agriculture, information technology, automotive, carpentry, electrical, garments, and hospitality.

The project will also develop curriculum that is focused on the needs of the labor market, fosters student-centered learning, and ensures practical training. New teaching and learning materials will also be developed.
