Kazakhstan in the globalized world

Hello, Reader!

The central theme running through almost all the accounts in the next issue of “Modern Education” is the internationalization of education. The process, which has gained popularity and development in most countries of the world, is now widely followed in Kazakhstan as well. This phenomenon has a double meaning. On the one hand, it is impossible in today's environment of globalization to be cut off from the mainstream of education and upbringing of the younger generation. On the other hand, there is a risk of losing the face of the national model of training the future succession. An unthinking approach, a reckless approach in this matter can be costly.
Internationalization of education has embraced all parts of our domestic schools. This process is going on not only in the university environment, but also in the system of vocational education, twelve-year comprehensive school, penetrating into pre-school education as well. This is clearly manifested in the organization of postgraduate education, in the field of modern science. Skillful use of positive experience in international integration yields tangible results. This can be seen on the example of the Kazakh-German University in Almaty, “Astana Polytechnic” Higher College, whose experience is shown in detail in the current issue of our magazine.
The participation of our VET (Vocational Education and Training) system in the international WorldSkills movement has become a good help in training personnel for the needs of the economy and social matters of the country. In thirty competencies out of sixty, envisaging competitions on the world arena, our future owners of the most important modern working qualifications are firmly mastered, as evidenced by the results of championships in recent years. The pace at which our students are advancing to the heights of success is frankly pleasing.
There is much that is instructive and inspiring about the affairs of the oldest teacher training university in the country – Abay Kazakh National Teacher Training University, whose own extensive experience has been enriched by international one, D.Serikbayev East-Kazakhstan Technical University, S.Seifullin Kazakh Agrotechnical Research University and other universities that put the internationalization of education first and foremost at the service of the interests and needs of our country.
Let us hope that in the future we will not be overwhelmed by the waves of alien influences as it has occurred in the recent, near past. Just Kazakhstan, the course announced by the new leaders of the country, should be built on the basis of the reasonable, good, eternal, bequeathed by previous generations and in accordance with true universal values.
