The project was planned ear­lier this year, in Jan­uary, dur­ing a trip of the head of our state to the Kashkadarya re­gion. In the place of the aban­doned build­ing a new train­ing cen­ter was or­ga­nized within a short pe­riod of time.

“On the faces of young peo­ple one read a great de­sire to learn, ac­quire a pro­fes­sion,” says the con­struc­tion man­ager of the train­ing cen­ter David Choi. “It inspires each of us. Hav­ing mas­tered in the cen­ter the se­crets of metal pro­cess­ing, spin­ning tech­nolo­gies, elec­tron­ics, com­puter work, sewing ma­chines, they will be­come good spe­cial­ists. Our goal is to con­tinue co­op­er­a­tion in this mat­ter.”

Korea for the train­ing cen­ter has al­lo­cated a grant of $ 8.5 mil­lion for stu­dents; all the nec­es­sary con­di­tions are cre­ated here. This is an ed­u­ca­tional build­ing for 250 seats, fa­cil­i­ties for study­ing and con­duct­ing lab­o­ra­tory work, a mod­ern hos­tel for vis­it­ing stu­dents, a li­brary, a din­ing room, a sports ground are equipped with the nec­es­sary equip­ment.

The cen­ter pro­vides train­ing for pro­fes­sions and spe­cial­ties in de­mand on the la­bor mar­ket. In ad­di­tion, in- depth study of English and Rus­sian lan­guages, the ba­sics of en­trepreneur­ship and busi­ness are of­fered.

“Within the frame­work of co­op­er­a­tion with the Korean Agency for In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion and the Min­istry of Em­ploy­ment and La­bor Re­la­tions of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan, a num­ber of projects have been im­ple­mented aimed at train­ing and re­train­ing highly qual­i­fied per­son­nel in the pro­fes­sions and spe­cial­ties in de­mand on the la­bor mar­ket,” said Deputy Min­is­ter of Em­ploy­ment and La­bor Re­la­tions Ba­hodir Ni­zomov. “The train­ing cen­ter for pro­fes­sions in Shahris­abz started work on July 1. Ed­u­ca­tion here is free, for the pe­riod of study the en­rolled per­sons are paid schol­ar­ships from the State Em­ploy­ment Fund.”

The train­ing cen­ter plans to train and re­train 480 un­em­ployed young peo­ple and grad­u­ates of ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions a year. Classes are con­ducted by ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ers and crafts­men who have im­proved their qual­i­fi­ca­tions in South Korea.

“I am very glad that I was ac­cepted to the cen­ter for stud­ies in the di­rec­tion of sewing,” says Shah­noza Ak­barova. “In the fu­ture I plan to be­come not only a seam­stress, but also thor­oughly study the Korean lan­guage and get a higher ed­u­ca­tion in South Korea. In the near­est fu­ture, cut­ting- edge ed­u­ca­tional equip­ment from this coun­try will be in­stalled in the train­ing cen­ter. And six months later, 240 pro­fes­sion­als who have mas­tered the pro­found knowl­edge and pro­fes­sion in the train­ing cen­ter, will be­gin work­ing.”
