It was noted that this project serves the purpose of integrating teacher education at all levels for the capital's schools and kindergartens and is designed to largely meet the growing need of Astana for higher education teachers, through the gradual transformation of the college into a pedagogical institute.
In particular, the Astana International University invested more than 6 billion tenge to create a pedagogical institute. These are two educational buildings in the very center of the capital with a total area of 10 thousand square meters, fully equipped in accordance with strict qualification requirements (subject rooms, computer classes, auditoriums, library, a first-aid post, canteens, gym, etc.) and with required licenses and accreditations. This is a great intellectual work of highly qualified AIU faculty to design the necessary educational programs. In addition, the college was renovated and modern educational equipment was purchased in the amount of more than 136 million tenge. And to increase the salaries of college teachers, AIU has invested more than 330 million tenge in the college and continues to invest more than 20 million tenge for these purposes every month.
The transition of teacher education from the level of TVET to higher education is an urgent need for Kazakhstan. Thus, for example, higher education for teachers of even preschool education and upbringing is mandatory in OECD countries, and in 4 countries (England, France, Iceland, Italy) teachers of preschool education are required to have a master's degree.
Finland, which school system is recognized by the academic and expert community as one of the best in the world, already in 1974 made the transition of pedagogical education from colleges to universities and since 1979 all teachers must have a master's degree.
