02.03.2024 254

The results of the work of the third stream of the School of Analytics were summarized – 13 reports related to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals were presented. Launched three years ago on the initiative of members of the Club of Young Experts under the Senate and with the support of Chairman of the Chamber Maulen Ashimbayev, the public project "School of Analytics" was highly appreciated by Kazakhstani and international experts. The special guest of the final day of lectures and trainings was the Permanent Coordinator of the United Nations in Kazakhstan, Michaella Friberg Story.

One of the features of the current flow of the School of Analytics has become the active involvement of participants from the regions of the country. Within two months, they completed an intensive course to improve the skills of preparing analytical materials. The platform has become a unique opportunity for collaboration with high-class domestic and foreign experts.

As in previous years, the training course consisted of theoretical and practical blocks. Well-known Kazakhstani and foreign experts were invited as lecturers and trainers. They talked about various analytical methods and approaches, conducted master classes and trainings. In addition, the participants of the school held a number of meetings with ministers and heads of central government agencies in the format of business lunches.

Summing up the results of the team projects, the Speaker of the Senate noted the high level of elaboration of the reports, their relevance, structuring and content of conclusions and recommendations. As Maulen Ashimbayev emphasized, mentors who worked almost daily with teams from the School of Analytics played an important role in this.

"This year's project had a number of features. One of them was the high involvement of the participants and teamwork. This is a great merit of each participant, and, of course, the mentors. On average, mentors devoted at least 15 hours of their time per week, taking on great responsibility, shared their knowledge and experience, helped in organizing meetings, and guided in the preparation of reports. Mentoring is an important institution within the framework of training and strengthening professional skills. 24 experienced lecturers and 13 mentors worked with you. You have seen for yourself their level of professionalism," said Maulen Ashimbayev, expressing gratitude to the mentors of the Project.

The course covered 7 key modules. The final work of the teams was devoted to the five Sustainable Development Goals, covering topics such as poverty eradication, health and well-being, quality education, clean water and sanitation, as well as decent work and economic growth. These goals, as noted by Maulen Ashimbayev, were identified as priorities as a result of a survey of the population within the framework of the voluntary review of Kazakhstan presented at the UN.

It is also important to note that this year the duration of classes was doubled due to the mutual interest in the interaction of participants, mentors and expert lecturers.

"Two months have been very intense. Ahead is the presentation of a collection of your reports and a number of other projects together with the Club of Young Experts at the Senate. All reports are informative and will be published in a single collection and submitted for the work of deputies of the Senate and relevant state bodies," Maulen Ashimbayev said, congratulating the participants on the successful completion of the course and noted that interaction will continue within the framework of the legislative work of the Parliament.

On the same day, the director of the Institute of Smart Systems and Artificial Intelligence of Nazarbayev University, Hussein Atakal Varol, and the co-founder of the School of Artificial Intelligence, Nick McFly, delivered their lectures at the final course.
