Effective implementation of the “Kazakhstan — 2050” Strategy, the Concept of Kazakhstan becoming one of the 30 most developed countries in the world, five institutional reforms, the national Plan “100 concrete steps” and other conceptual documents involves a systematic study of international best practices, as well as interaction with leading educational centers of foreign countries.

The need to further consolidate international cooperation caused by globalization of the world educational space, in this context, harmonization of standards, exchange of experience in the application of innovative technologies in science and education will serve as a major impetus for further development of the training system.
