PTU - it is prestigious. How the government intends to encourage training of skilled workers?

December 6 2007

As you know, in the country now operates the priority national project "Education". During his entire Russian educational system shaken upside down any one time. At school new health standards, the universities of bachelor. Now the changes have come in the primary and secondary vocational education.

Of today's Russian schoolchildren, few people want to continue their education at vocational schools. Everyone knows that the PTU is not prestigious, not good for troechnikov. "Here you do not know, Alexander, logarithms - a vocational school you way" - said a long time ago, my teacher of algebra. Why, the average student to any teacher at least once in their lives predicted vocational school, trying to shame him in this way and right way to instruct. However, the position of the government and Russian business in the current situation is just the opposite - the country needs graduates from vocational schools.

When the trees were large and the small business in Russia the problem of shortage of staff was not so acute. Now the managers of large enterprises feel it every day. Case in the overall modernization of companies. Instead antiquated machines - long-standing ultra-modern. Here are just working for them no one. Young people are learning at higher education institutions want to earn a living brain, not your hands. "Business has set itself new strategic goals, thus changing training requirements. The problem of two-sided: one side does not generate an adequate qualitative inquiry, while the other is not able to upgrade in accordance with the time "- said Sergey Litovchenko, executive director of the association managers.

The government's solution to the problem resulted in the formation of a list of innovative institutions NGOs / ACT. In May of this year's competition was held - in which 45 institutions have identified primary / secondary vocational education. These institutions were primarily financial support 1.8 billion budget and 1.9 billion extra-budgetary funds. It is noteworthy that the Government funded vocational schools are not alone, and a purse with potential employers. Among the companies concerned, such economic heavyweights such as Railways, Gazprom, "Baltika" and others.

According to the summing up, the program operates. Employment of graduates in the specialty is 71%, and in one of the colleges of Lipetsk 100%. Among employers, too little disgruntled. 63% of them indicated that graduates trained under the new program much better than graduates of the past.

However, the priority of the Government is not only the development of educational programs, but also enhance the image of working professions. "For a man self-realization is to use all its resources and abilities. Those who learn in an innovative NGOs and free software most effectively use their time "- says Isaac Kalina, Deputy Minister of Education. Apparently, it is possible. Apparently, this aspect of the program is successful, too, according to statistics of the input average competition in innovative vocational schools this year amounted to 6 people in place.

The main reason why young people do not want to receive secondary and primary vocational education - a public setting. First of all young people should understand that the technical colleges - is also the formation and development path. In fact, so many managers and lawyers, which is released annually from the universities of the country simply can not digest the state. They are corny do not need. But the need turners, millers and installers.

It is also important to understand that the working profession - not a dead end. Their employees, many companies send a perstizhnye universities for higher otbrazovaniya chosen specialty. This practice is carried out in such enterprises such as Gazprom and the Mirax Group.
