The EU project: “Support to the Education Sector in Turkmenistan”

The new strategy of the European Union for Central Asia aims to strengthen resilience in overcoming internal and external shocks and enhance the ability to embrace reforms. Engagement with local stakeholders is key to have a long-term impact and promote local ownership and appropriation. The European Union contributes to investment in people as the necessary precondition to meet the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and 21st-century skills acquisition.

The third EU-financed educational project within ten years: “Support to the Education Sector in Turkmenistan” aims at the creation of a modern education system in line with international standards and adapting skills supply to labour market needs.

The objectives of the project’s website are:

  • to inform European taxpayers about the use of their resources,
  • to provide access to work undertaken and results achieved,
  • to communicate lessons learnt,
  • to disseminate policy recommendation developed.

With our experience from the ground, we would like to contribute to the debate on education modernisation in Turkmenistan. We see the website as a reference point and contribution to the emerging digital infrastructure in education that becomes essential in an increasingly complex, unpredictable, messy, and fast-changing world.

About us familiarises with our team in Ashgabat and backstopping capacities in Greece, Athens, the list of short-term experts, the consortium leader European Profiles, and the consortium members  International Bund, Pearson, and European Project Management Ltd.
