Tajikistan has demonstrated a firm dedication to ensuring universal access to quality education, in line with Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4). To help the country achieve this goal, UNESCO, with financial support from the European Union is implementing the “Competency-based, ICT-enabled, STEM education in Tajikistan 2022-2026” project.
On March 28, 2023 the Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Tajikistan, Abdulzoda Ziyodullo met with the representatives of the European Union and UNESCO to discuss the current state of the project. The Deputy Minister emphasized the importance of collaboration between the ministry, UNESCO, and the EU to achieve the project’s goals.
The Deputy Minister noted that the competency-based approach to education has a significant impact on students’ learning outcomes, as it emphasizes mastery of skills and knowledge rather than simply completing coursework.
“Integrating ICT and applying the competency-based approach into education system will increase the quality of education. By leveraging ICT tools and a competency-based approach, education system can create more interactive, engaging, and personalized learning experience for students. This, in turn, can lead to higher student performance and increased retention rates, which are critical for the long-term success of any education system.”
