PROPOSALS TO IMPROVE THE VOCATIONAL TRAINING SYSTEM WERE CONSIDEREDOctober 5, 2023
President Shavkat Mirziyoyev got acquainted with the presentation of new initiatives to improve the quality of vocational education and training of the population in professions.
Vocational education occupies a special place in the development of the economy. Thus, in developed countries, up to 75 percent of students are enrolled in vocational education.
This system is also developing in our country, in accordance with the requirements of the labor market. The training of mid-level specialists is carried out mainly in colleges and technical schools of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation, as well as monocenters under the Ministry of Employment and Poverty Reduction.
Currently, 689 vocational educational institutions are teaching 714 professions and specialties, and 20 centers “Ishga Marhamat” teach 54 professions and 6 foreign languages.
At the same time, there are certain gaps in the sphere. Some educational programs are not linked to the requirements of life. Vocational education is unattractive for schoolchildren. As a result, the capacities of educational institutions are not fully used.
In order to eliminate these shortcomings and improve the quality of vocational training, the relevant ministries have developed new proposals. At the presentation, the responsible persons provided detailed information.
