The final 2022 presentation of the project results in Zhanssugurov village

“Modern education requires new approaches and sets its own requirements both for the upbringing of children and for the quality of education. Previously, it was important that the student fully completed all the tasks. The new technique adapts to the child, taking into account their talents, abilities, gives a certain freedom and space for development. The exchange of experience held by the Education Sustainable Development Fund and the project partner, Nazarbayev Intellectual School within the framework of the joint project “Increasing the potential of hub schools in rural regions” has taught our teachers a lot. Not only for the student, but also for the teachers themselves, the learning process has become much more efficient and easier,” Rakhat Nygmetbekkyzy, the school Director says.

22 classrooms and workshops for additional education, STEM laboratory, ART-studio, TV studio and library with a coworking area for students - all this became possible thanks to funding of almost KZT250 million, which was carried out within the framework of the Kazakhstan Khalkyna Fund. The project was donated by Beeline Kazakhstan.

The team of the Education Sustainable Development Fund and specialists of the project partner, Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO have completed the analysis of the educational environment and the quality of teaching at school. Based on it, recommendations on the necessary courses for advanced training of schoolteachers have been formed.

The intensive training program for the teaching staff will be held until February 2023. After its completion, the school will switch to three-year methodological support until 2025.

“First of all, it is necessary to raise the fact that almost half of the people of Kazakhstan live in rural areas. Therefore, rural schoolchildren should have equal opportunities with urban ones. We are engaged in the development of hub schools, without which it is impossible to raise rural education. Our project covers 17 regions of Kazakhstan, where about 13 thousand children study and about 2 thousand teachers work,” Daniyar Toktarbayev, Director of the Education Sustainable Development Fund said.

The updated school was presented in the “Open Day” format with the participation of Amangeldi Tolemisov, Senator of the Republic of Kazakhstan, representatives of local executive bodies, as well as partners and sponsors of the project. The organizers told about the results of the training program and will hold a presentation of the updated school.
