The project Modernization of secondary education was launched , carried out in the framework of the Loan Agreement between the Republic of Kazakhstan and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Harry Anthony Patrinos, World Bank Governor for Educational Practice, spoke about the role and participation of the International Bank in this project.

During a press conference at the CCS, he noted that the Human Capital Index Project was launched last month.

During the annual meetings of the World Bank, this is a kind of program for investing in human resources, which is considered a big focus in the World Bank. The three main components are survival, the duration of training and also the productivity of future workers. We conducted a comparative analysis. We have to answer this question – by the age of 18, given the poor training and health, what kind of human capital can a child save? The next slide shows how we measure the index, the distance of the front line, that is, how much is needed to achieve the highest results and the index of ideal situations. Then we can see these results around the world, that is, these are the results that are presented in relation to the income level, which shows a positive trend, but unequivocally many countries show the results of fairly high incomes. Regarding the duration of training, adjusted for quality education, you see the distribution of results, what is represented by blue – these are countries with high results, yellow in which there is a rather low level of training. These results are distributed in different ways around the world. We see that in some countries there are rather low results. Singapore today shows the best results in terms of human capital development and in training, and in southeast Asia we have high results. Kazakhstan takes the 10th place for training. This is, of course, a very good result for Kazakhstan, he said. what is represented in blue is the countries with high results, yellow in which there is a rather low level of training.

In general, as noted by Harry Patrinos, out of 157 countries that were measured in the human capital development index, Kazakhstan ranked 31st.

We can observe the dynamics of changes from 2012 to 2017, when Kazakhstan participated in various tests in the field of education. We see progress in comparison with other countries, that is, it is quite higher than the level of income. And further, we see a comparison with other countries of Europe and Central Asia. Kazakhstan on survival shows at the level of other countries, by the duration of schooling. Kazakhstan compared with other countries of Europe and central Asia shows quite good results, but the only one by survival up to 15-16 years is less impressive here, but in general, Kazakhstan is quite high in relation to countries with the same income level, he said.

According to the results of training, according to Harry Patrinos, the country now sees the results of the TIMS test.

There is a fairly good improvement in the results, and Kazakhstan is showing results higher than the OECD average. As TIMS and PISA, we also see over the past few years, which, again, Kazakhstan shows significant results. All participants show improvement, but nevertheless, those who initially showed high scores are the best and have advanced. Therefore, the goal of the project, which we are launching today, is to reach those students who are lagging behind, the speaker said.

In conclusion, Harry Patrinos congratulated Kazakhstan on the launch of this project, stressing that the country is ready to begin the project event.
