Khorog Centre for Entrepreneurship
Businesses ravaged by the Covid pandemic found new hope in the opening of the Khorog Centre for Entrepreneurship (KCE) on August 17. Established by the University of Central Asia’s (UCA) School of Professional and Continuing Education (SPCE), the Centre aims at providing advice, training, and support to generate income and promote market development for small business leaders and farmers in the region. It is part of Tajikistan’s Local Economic Development in Selected High-Mountain Regions Project.
SPCE Tajikistan has its learning centres in Dushanbe (3), Khorog (2), Khujand (1) and Bokhtar (1). SPCE Khorog town campus building was privatised in 2003 by UCA and went through major reconstruction to facilitate quality education. The campus started its operation in 2006. TVET Khorog campus accommodates almost 128 apprentices per year and offers workshops and programmes on carpentry, masonry, plastering and tile setting, plumbing, and metalworking. Similarly, three more learning centres were opened in Dushanbe in response to the high demand for SPCE's programmes. Bokhtar centre started its operation in 2019.
SPCE organizes various events throughout the year including Global Money Week, olympiads, contests, debates, English-speaking clubs, open houses, and many others. It also invites guest speakers to conduct workshops and lectures. At the end of each programme, SPCE conducts graduation ceremonies to award students with certificates.
