30 November 2023

UCA’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (SPCE) has successfully launched a Women’s Technical Training Programme in the Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region in Tajikistan. Since its commencement earlier this year, the programme has enrolled 17 women who are cultivating their skills in home appliance repair.

The professional module of this course trains individuals as mid-level specialists, proficient in the repair, installation, and maintenance of home appliances, mobile phones, and IT equipment. The programme aligns with the state standards of the Republic of Tajikistan for the training of mid-level specialists. Upon successfully completing the course, students earn the title of “Master of Repairing Home Appliances, Mobile Phones, and IT Equipment.”

This certified technical training was conceptualised, piloted, and administered by SPCE as part of the “Local Impact: A Transformative Partnership in Asia and Africa” initiative. Unemployed adult women were invited to participate in the three-month-long course, with a strong emphasis on ensuring inclusivity, especially for those with partial disabilities.
