The Uzbek education system lacks experience in the didactic-methodical design of school lessons, in practical relevance and in increasing students' motivation. The curricula also do not reflect the modern requirements of the real economy.
Since the school year 2020/2021, the Uzbek government has introduced special training for young people in entrepreneurial education in vocational schools by integrating two new subjects into the curricula: "Fundamentals of Business" in vocational schools and "Organisation and Management of Business" in vocational schools and the so-called technical colleges. The biggest challenges are the lack of teaching materials that meet international standards, outdated teaching methods (frontal teaching), no trained business teachers, lack of understanding of financial basics and no or very little practical relevance.
The aim of the project is to develop a standard curriculum for financial and entrepreneurial skills with 60 teaching hours and to provide vocational school teachers (including those in the textile sector) with the necessary skills and tools to offer these modules in vocational schools.
For this purpose, 28 vocational school teachers and 14 area coordinators are to be trained, who in turn are to qualify 750 vocational school teachers. In addition, 50 directors of vocational textile schools are to be trained.
- Development of a standard curriculum for financial and entrepreneurial education at vocational schools using DSIK's own business games (Savings Game and Micro Business Game)
- Selection and training of master trainers for vocational school teachers
- Selection and training of coordinators for regional centers
- Preparation of vocational school teachers for teaching finance and business at vocational schools
- Development of additional training modules on topics such as marketing & branding, e-commerce, or employability skills
