Workshop on International Finance Reporting standards, January 2020

April 7, 2020 | Category : News

ASHGABAT, TURKMENISTAN, January 2020Senior Non-Key expert Ms Marine Gazaryan implemented a two-day workshop on International Finance Reporting Standards for 14 teachers from the Turkmen Vocational School of Engineering and Technology of Ministry of Textile Industry. Since 2019 Turkmenistan has moved to international standards but is still in an initial phase to create the required institutional infrastructure that produces the necessary educational supply to meet demand. TVET teachers are well-positioned to close the current schism between business needs and governmental decision-making on the one hand and the realities on the ground on the other side.

Ms Gazaryan evaluated the current legislation and developed a package of training and methodological materials that can be used by the participants when teaching IFRS. She created video-lectures about critical principles of IFRS and integrated the course in the project’s Learning Management System “Moodle”.

All participants appreciated the input, highlighted the quality of teaching and the use of new, digital approaches to meet the current needs of the textile industry in strengthening international competitiveness.
