Solovev RSATU, the Rybinsk industrial and economic college, the Yaroslavl automotive college, the Yaroslavl architectural college and the lyceum No. 2 made 11 presentations on the subject.
The main topics of the section’s work were the training of qualified personnel to be employed in high-tech industries, opportunities for improving the quality level of the training process and achieving the state of technological leadership by the core learning institutions. The participants also reviewed the items of interaction between professional education institutions and the development of dual education in Russia. The experts couldn’t leave aside the tasks posed to the modern education system as it relates to training employees for industrial companies.
According to the section moderator, doctor of technical sciences, professor, RSATU president Valeriy Poletaev “in the conditions of deficit of the engineering staff and consequently shopfloor personnel as well, we are faced with the need to consolidate the efforts of not only the industrial enterprises and professional education institutions but also those of the general education school. In order to enhance the appreciation of technology, schools could organize technological creativity rings and sections as well as dedicated classes. The professional education institutions could organize master classes and field trips for schoolchildren whereas high-tech companies could contribute to the cause through proactive professional orientation work. The development of Russian economy is impossible without the restoration of the country’s high-tech sector. That requires properly trained personnel. Once again we came to realize that such goal is achievable through creating a unique research-production, educational-methodological and cultural domain ensured by all the stakeholders and that’s what has brought us together here today.”
