Anti-corruption summer school for teachers

The project “Anti-corruption summer school for teachers” was implemented with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. This project made it possible to introduce the course “Anti-Corruption Policy” in the universities of the country and to disseminate knowledge and skills of combating corruption in various spheres of public life.

The goal of the project was to introduce anti-corruption education in the universities of Kyrgyzstan to develop and disseminate among students the concept of a society free from corruption in order to create a critical mass of young people with zero tolerance for corruption.
To achieve this goal, the project team carried out the following activities:

  • developed a training course on anti-corruption policy for universities, including curricula, lectures,
    practical assignments, tutorials, etc.
  • a textbook “Fundamentals of combating corruption” was developed for undergraduates and students of higher educational institutions;
  • developed a textbook “Fundamentals of anti-corruption policy” for university teachers. The tutorial presents educational materials that can be used in the process of conducting training seminars, refresher courses and trainings.
  • An anti-corruption summer school was held for teachers from 10 pilot universities (in the TOT format) in order to prepare for teaching this course at their universities.
  • the participants of the anti-corruption school developed and signed the “Code of Ethics for Teachers of Higher Education Institutions”;
  • received approval from the Ministry of Education for the further implementation of the course in the curricula of universities;
  • provided mentoring assistance to the School participants in the implementation of the developed anti-corruption courses at universities.

Thanks to this project, the Institute had an excellent opportunity to train teachers who will promote the ideas of a transparent and responsible government, train young leaders of the country who are intolerant of corruption.

The project helped create a network of active educators promoting anti-corruption education initiatives. The project was highly appreciated and approved by the leadership of the Ministry of Education and Science.
The implementation of this project has once again confirmed the relevance and urgent need for further implementation of anti-corruption education and enlightenment, as well as active promotion of zero tolerance for corruption in society.
