New development prospects: issues of inclusive education in the basis of mutual projects in the system of vocational education in Russia and Kazakhstan

The agreement accepted the arrangements, which were reached within the framework of one of the stages of the international road-show of Abilympics National Centre of the Russian Federation in November 2021 in Nur-Sultan. During the events, the possibilities of expanding the cooperation between two countries in matters of holding professional skills competitions for people with disabilities were discussed, also within the framework of the development of the vocational education system.

 

The main focus of cooperation between FIDVET and Synergy will be the implementation of mutual projects on the development and implementation of innovative educational technologies in vocational education organizations, including the creation of an accessible environment and comfortable conditions for the education of people with disabilities, advanced training for heads of educational organizations and teaching staff. The activities of the parties will also be aimed at mutual implementation of projects for holding the professional skills competitions for people with disabilities in order to further their socialization, employment and competitiveness in the labor market.

 

It should be noted, that Scientific-educational Foundation “Synergy”, authorized organization of the Republic of Kazakhstan, is the flagship in the field of inclusive education in the Republic of Kazakhstan, and the member organization of International Abilympic Federation. Thanks to the Foundation, since 2017 the Republic of Kazakhstan has been holding the professional skills championships for people with disabilities. The Republic prepared not only contestants, but also international judges for participation in the 10th International Abilympics. Moreover, the Kazakhstan team applied for the championship as the largest delegation from the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The 10th International Abilympics is scheduled to be held in Moscow in 2022.
