The British Council, Almaty Akimat, Kazakh-British Technical University and Almaty Development Centre are pleased to announce a call for applications to become Trainers for WeAlmaty project.  


The WeAlmaty project is funded by the European Union. It aims to help the city of Almaty realise its 2020 development vision around creating culture, business and active citizenship through targeted development of civil society and transforming into a smart city. It will do this by strengthening the capacity of civil society organisations and local government to increase citizens’ involvement in the development of the local economy in Almaty, and to develop citizens’ entrepreneurship for new ideas and social businesses to address urban, social issues. 

Capacity Building component

The Capacity Building strand is one of four separate subcomponents of the project. It aims to increase the ability of local policymakers, civil society and young social and creative entrepreneurs to work together to develop citizen-centred social initiatives that provide economic and social benefit to people living in Almaty.

Role of trainers

As part of Capacity Building strand, we are looking to train six Almaty residents as Trainers who can train others and provide mentoring and on-going support. 

Once they have completed their own training in the form of a training programme and UK visit, the Trainers will be required to deliver six 4-5 day workshops (including developing the necessary content and providing reports to the project team) and take part in the activities of the Dialogue Platform subcomponent of the project. Trainers will be paid 10000 tenge per each day of workshops.

As a result of this call for applications, we expect to select six trainers who will be invited for training and to take part in a UK study visit.
