EKATERINBURG, October 1 – Novosti. The development of Russia, the economy, small and medium-sized businesses depends on secondary vocational education; if there are no working specialties, then there will be no production, no industry, said Russian Minister of Education Sergei Kravtsov.
“This is a very important level of education, it can be said to be such an independent level of education. The development of our country, our economy, small and medium-sized businesses, our industries largely depends on it. Because we are well aware that if there are no working specialties, then <…> there will be no production, no industry,” Kravtsov said at a meeting with the winners of the All-Russian competition “Master of the Year”.
He added that today workers are in great demand, and the participants in the “Master of the Year” contest have chosen a very important profession.
The website of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation explains that the All-Russian competition “Master of the Year” is aimed at forming and developing the human resources potential of the secondary vocational education system, identifying and encouraging talented and enterprising teachers. Last year it was held for the first time and brought together more than a thousand masters of industrial training from 85 regions of Russia.
