As stated in international studies, Kazakhstani teachers need to enhance their skills as a component of their professional development, even though the majority of teachers undergo professional training at advanced centers within Kazakhstan. The successful education of qualified teachers in teaching methods and strategies (both during pre- and in-service) influences the development of students’ global skills. Global skills are necessary for a successful career and life in a rapidly changing world. Thus, it is essential that teachers are well-prepared to transfer and instill these skills in students. The central question that guided this research was to identify the preparedness and confidence of pre-service and in-service teachers in teaching methods and strategies for cultivating students' global skills. The sampling frame was based on the PISA 2018 results in Kazakhstan, which indicated that the western region was an outlier among other regions. This allowed us to select research participants. The online survey involved prospective primary school teachers (N=338) of pedagogical universities and in-service teachers (N=1217) from the western region. The research results showed that, in general, prospective and in-service teachers assess their preparedness and practical skills in teaching methods and strategies for students’ global skill development positively, although students from the western region showed a low level according to the PISA 2018 results. Further analysis of classroom observations is necessary, as it will allow researchers to obtain more reliable data. These findings will contribute to the Ministry of Education of Kazakhstan in developing methodological guidelines to improve teaching practices.
