As noted by Nurzhan Altayev, it is planned to provide the short-term vocational training to about 37,000 people. The duration of the course is about six months.

At the same time, taking into account the instructions of the Head of State to strengthen the work on raising awareness about digitalization and preparing specialists for the IT industry, given at the extended Government meeting February 9, 2018, as well as under the Digital Kazakhstan program, today the ministry is reviewing the short-term training program to focus on increasing the digital literacy of the population.

"It is clear that certain professions are in great demand among employers, and these professions are currently being trained in the short-term education program. But we understand that in the era of digitalization, whatever your profession is, you still need to have some IT skills. If you have them, then your value as an employee, as a specialist, rises sharply. Therefore, we are now reviewing the short-term training program and introducing IT skills training there. That is, all these 37,000 people will have IT skills," the vice minister said.

The Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population organizes short-term vocational training. Short-term vocational training enables unemployed citizens to obtain professional knowledge and skills in demand on the labor market in a short time.

Training is conducted through existing colleges, training centers at enterprises, as well as in remote communities through mobile training centers. Last year, with a plan of 26,000, 61,000 unemployed and self-employed citizens completed short-term courses. At the same time, the participants of the program are provided with a scholarship, travel, accommodation.

In addition, Nurzhan Altayev spoke about the possibility of launching special courses on IT literacy.

"We are now coming out with proposals to train about 10,000 IT specialists for the Digital Kazakhstan program this year as part of our projects. That is, there will be a separate project under the Program for Productive Employment and Mass Entrepreneurship," Altayev said.

Also, the vice minister answered questions from the media representatives about the mechanism for obtaining microcredits. In 2017, under the Bastau-Business program, more than 15,000 Kazakhstanis were trained, and about 7,000 of them received microcredits for the opening of their business. In the current year, within the framework of the Fourth Social Initiative, the financing of microcredit was increased by 20 billion tenge to 62 billion tenge.

"This year we plan to double the number of microcredits to 14 thousand people. Microcredits are granted for up to 7 years at 6% per annum. If a person lacks collateral, then the state, after reviewing his business plan, can provide up to 85% of the guarantee for this loan," the vice minister summed up.

Brazil’s version of trump: why is it «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align:justify">Racist, homophobe, misogynist and pro-torturer. Because of his profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such image and was considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker that she was too ugly to be worthy of raping. He said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why does Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How does such «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president? </p>
