Tashkent regional pedagogical college

Tashkent Regional Pedagogical College will be the first educational institution to introduce dual education. In parallel with their academic education, college students develop practical skills in working with children. To this end, a new public preschool was established at the college for 240 students.
The advantage of the dual education model over traditional education is the strong connection between theory and practice. Students know what they are learning and how they can apply what they have learned to their own work. As a result of this approach, the pre-school education system will have not only pedagogical knowledge, but also teachers who know how to work with children.
MTV introduces dual education in 97 pedagogical colleges across the country. Pre-school education institutions in colleges provide free one-year school preparation, as well as other educational services in the prescribed manner.
