Modernization and preparation of the labor market for new challenges are held in Kazakhstan. The Minister of labor and social protection of population of RK Berdibek Saparbayev told about the work carried out in this direction.
Thus, a three-level national system for forecasting personnel needs is being introduced: a short-term period (1 year), a medium-term period (5 years), a long-term period (2050).
"It will allow us to understand what kind of specialists and how much we need today or in 5-10 years, as well as to determine the directions and conditions of labor resources flows. The results will be used in the formation of the state educational order for the training of specialists with secondary and higher education, short-term training and retraining," the Minister said during the reporting meeting with the population.
The formation of the National qualifications system is also continuing.
"Currently, 106 professional standards have been developed, which reflect the requirements of employers to the knowledge, skills and competencies of employees. This year, it is planned to develop and adopt 480 professional standards and 38 sectorial qualifications frameworks for 12 priority sectors. On the basis of professional standards, educational programs will be updated," B. Saparbayev noted.
In order to involve industry employers in the development of professional standards in 2019, a Project group from a number of the heads of sectorial Ministries was created. For further development of the qualification system, the Ministry with the assistance of international experts designs a Roadmap for the development of the NQS until 2025, which will be adopted in the second half of the year.
