Tajikistan is changing the way children learn

|

Ten years ago, the government of Tajikistan started an ambitious education reform effort with the support from the Global Partnership for Education, World Bank, UNICEF and USAID. The new competency-based curriculum aims to improve learning environments, teacher quality and provide students with cognitive and life skills.

As of 2017, the following results have been achieved with support of a US$16.2 million grant from the Global Partnership for Education:

  • 5,400 primary teachers have been trained
  • 2 million new learning materials have been distributed to grades 1-4
  • 160,000 primary students are using the new curriculum

By 2020, all grades and schools in Tajikistan aim to complete the transition from knowledge-based to competency-based education.
