Brief need            The problems that project is focused on and is aimed to solve are very actual
analysis              nowadays because of the following reasons.

                      The graduating students of pedagogical institutes are future teachers in
                      schools and colleges. For the time being the skills and knowledge of most
                      graduating students, especially in physical sciences, do not satisfy modern
                      requirements. By improving the quality of pedagogical students’ education
                      we can make great contribution not only to the development of people’s
                      education system but also to economic, political and social development of
                      Uzbekistan in the long run. Because the knowledge gotten at the school desk
                      is a cornerstone in any person’s future development and teachers are like
                      “architects of the soul and basic background knowledge” play the most
                      important role in this process. And pedagogical institutes are the main
5th Call for proposals (deadline - 23 February 2012)

                    producers of these “architects”.

                    For achieving this long run goal, improvement of teachers’ staff qualification
                    in pedagogical institutes is very necessary.
                    So development of modern qualifications frameworks for teachers’ staff is
                    one of the important issues for pedagogical institutes.

                    Moreover, undeveloped networking system among pedagogical institutes,
                    inactive participation of students and teachers in education quality assurance
                    and study program development processes are other reasons that make
                    realization of such project vitally important.

                    Indeed, methods of collection and analysis of key effectiveness indicators in
                    pedagogical institutes are quite different and ineffective and there is reliable
                    structure to measure student’s performance or professional preparedness to
                    labor market modern requirements.

                    Also, undeveloped partnership with enterprises, almost absence of
                    Knowledge triangle: education-innovation-research in pedagogical institutes
                    does not unlock the potential and opportunities that could be for economic
                    growth and political-social development in Uzbekistan.

                    In addition, in order to solve above problems it is significant to maintain
                    international cooperation and experience-knowledge exchange with
                    pedagogical institutes and organizations of EU.

                    For all these reasons the realization of this project is very necessary and by
                    realizing this project we can strike precisely to the roots of most economic,
                    structural and social problems in Uzbekistan.

                          to enhance quality assurance in pedagogical institutes by developing
