About new horizons of professional training - at УGlobal Education - 2017Ф

November 21-22 the XI International Congress-Exhibition “Global Education – Education without borders was held at the President-Hotel. The forum, in which representatives of the Ministry of Education of Russia and educational organizations took part, was focused on modernization of the system of professional training. At round tables and discussion sessions the topics were accessibility and relevance of the SPE system, infrastructure and training model for working resources in the regions, interaction with the employer, training of teachers and, as well, problems of evaluation of students.

The Ministry of Education and Science of the RF implements the priority project for training of workforce for advanced technologies, aimed at constructing a competitive system of professional education. “The image of the future training system of SPE at present is just emerging”, - says Head of the Moscow Poly Center for Development of Professional Education Aleksey Ovchinnikov. – “The movement “WorldSkills” appeared, centers of competences in working specialties, but a few years will pass before the key participants of the process shape a common opinion about the ways to development. There are numerous initiatives, and each of them, from an employee to an education institution, has its own customer and its own resources. The conferences like this one are required to sort out all the variety”.

One of the active participants of the modernization process is the Center for Development of Professional Education (CDPE) of the Moscow Poly. For example, a month ago an all-Russian forum of educational and methodologist associations in the SPE system was arranged at the university with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science of the RF. The activity models of FUMO SPE were discussed here again. The presentations, devoted to existing problems in functioning of public associations in the system of secondary professional education, were made by Evgeniy Belov, Irina Bozrova, Damira Ramazanova – representatives of FUMO in the area of information technologies, information security, and, as well, of electronics, radio engineering and communication systems. And Deputy Chairman of SPK of the chemical and biotechnological complex Maria Ivanova drew a parallel between activities of FUMO and of the Council for professional qualifications. Moderators of the discussion were Head of the Moscow Poly CDPE Aleksey Ovchinnikov and Deputy Head of Department of Professional Training of the Ministry of Education Tatiana Popova. In addition, in the framework of the forum, employees of the CDPE held all-Russian conferences “Improvement of mechanisms of methodological support for professional skills Olympiads” and “Personnel training for 50 professions and specialties in the secondary professional education, most in demand, new and promising”.

Aleksey Ovchinnikov also was an organizer of the expert session “Evaluation of competences and qualifications: development options”. At present there are several competences evaluation systems, and, as a result, colleges representatives cannot understand, by what criteria their work should be assessed. And an employer anyway often has to work out his own means to define the specialist’s level and to develop corporate universities in order to train employees according to his interests. In addition, there is no direct connection between the employee’s qualification and his salary level. The question is whether it is necessary to spread evaluation technologies to the areas, where standardization is inappropriate, like science and arts? Can we put independent evaluation methods in one row with the state ones? How could we cut costs of holding exams for engineering specialties and, at the same time, avoid reducing them to checking up just a theory knowledge?

Dmitriy Glushko, Deputy General Director for Introduction of the Regional Personnel Standard for Industrial Growth of the personnel of the Union “Young Professionals (WorldSkills Russia)” presented an international format of the WorldSkills exams. General Director of ANO “The National Agency for Qualifications Development” Aleksandr Leibovich spoke of the plans to introduce digital forms of testing.

The Moscow Poly IT faculty teacher Ivan Chikunov shared experience of holding practice-oriented exams. This format has much in common with a demonstration exam in SPE: the students do not answer to ticket questions but implement a practical task during a few days. Because many of university graduates do know how to solve a problem, but are unable to implement the solution due to lack of skills. For the students this format is helpful in learning to focus during the whole working day. While a teacher, in turn, gets an opportunity to monitor the vulnerabilities of the educational program and introduce necessary changes.

Dean of the Moscow Poly IT faculty Andrey Filippovich took part in events, devoted to personnel training for the digital economy. As a speaker in the discussion “Organization of auxiliary professional training under conditions of the changing market: the models of attendees attraction and the key success factors”, arranged by the Ministry of Education and Science of the RF, he spoke of establishment of competences centers in each of the state program directions. The project envisages that working groups, composed of representatives of all education levels and, also, of the state and business, prepare the events plan. Andrey Filippovich is one of the program developers, a member of the working group in training direction “Personnel and education” of the Agency of Strategic Initiatives and, also, Head of a subgroup “Technologies”.

According to Andrey Filippovich, the digital economy will entail innovation processes. “New technologies of access, organization and control of the knowledge, knowledge dissemination technologies, create a new, economically more efficient market. Yandex. Taxi, Uber – these are new markets, made of information technologies”, - says Andrey Filippovich. – “The digital economy changes the very business process, it changes the roles of people and the competences, which they should master. The main thing in a digit is the speed. The speed of information transfer, the speed of requirements changes, the speed of training programs, the speed of knowledge acquirement and regulation”. According to him, existing professional standards regulate work functions, which are not always implemented by an employee. That is why the working group proposes to take into account the number of competences, collected by the employee during his whole career, in a special profile. The idea can be realized by creation of individual profiles for all citizens – digital work books, where the information about acquired competences and work achievements would be accumulated. A presentation of the speaker at the panel discussion “Professions of the future” was devoted to specific professions and competences of the digital economy.
