***About the initiative
High performing education systems attract and retain best talent into the teaching force, provide tailored, focused, practical, and ongoing pre-service and in-service trainings and empower teachers through increased autonomy and exciting career trajectories to lead improvement in education quality in their classes, schools, communities, and the country. The initiative “Skilled Teachers – Skilled Nation” aims to exchange knowledge and experiences among Central Asian countries on existing policies and programmes regarding teacher recruitment, in- and pre-service teacher professional development systems, teachers' career trajectories. Under this initiative, an online Symposium took place on 13 October 2021 bringing together representatives of Ministries of Education and other stakeholders from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. The Ministries presented their visions on teacher policies and regional and international academics and practitioners highlighted international experiences on effective teacher policies and practices.
