The European Training Foundation (ETF) has been supporting Turkmenistan since 1995 in developing education and training to boost employability, increase access to opportunities and promote social cohesion, complementing the work of the European Commission and the EU’s External Action Service

In 2022, the EU’s first-ever regional project supporting young people in Central Asia – DARYA – was launched. This five-year project, which aims at fostering inclusion and labour market skills, is implemented by the ETF.

The ETF supports Turkmenistan by sharing knowledge and thematic expertise, for example on innovation in professional training, through the provision of examples of good practice from the EU.
