The NURSLING project aims to approach Uzbek higher education to real needs of economic and social development of the country. The specific objectives are the following:

  • introduction of  new national standards on informatics in Uzbekistan and development of a corresponding sectoral QF.

The aim of the project is to implement QF ideas in Uzbekistan. During the project realization, a Concept of General Regulations of education standards will be elaborated. General Regulations for Uzbekistan will be formulated and presented for formal approval to the Ministry of Education. A National Committee on QF will be established. The Committee will accompany the Regional CA Network, which is responsible for experience exchange and standards’ coordination.
The objectives addressed are in line with top priority of Uzbek educational development by a presidential resolution and address also issues related to a lack of graduates and a mismatch of their qualification with labour market needs, as elaborated in special World Bank report 2014.

Retraining of the Uzbek universities' staff in EU is planned as important in capacity building. Especially important is “training trainers”. Teachers, retrained at EU universities, will prepare special courses, devoted to qualification framework issues, and by this way will spread accepted knowledge within colleagues in Uzbekistan. On the base of the approved National General Regulations, retrained teacher will design national standards for informatics curricula and a sectoral QF with support based on the experience of EU partners.
