    Graduates of institutions of secondary vocational education in Yamal must meet the increased requirements of companies that are members of large engineering projects in the Arctic. This was stated by Dmitry Artyukhov, the governor of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, during an agreement with the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) and the Worldskills Russia Union on the implementation of the regional standard for staffing industrial growth (personnel standard), which was held in Moscow on November 19.

    According to the head of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, the mechanisms and practices that underlie the standard will allow the system to train personnel in the region to a new level.

    “The Arctic needs workers who border on engineering, since the region implements many complex engineering projects. Those people, who previously belonged to the category of handymen, today should already possess computer knowledge, skills to manage complex systems. Large projects in Yamal create thousands of jobs. They are all different, but require high qualifications. It is important that those who receive secondary vocational education in Yamal correspond to these tasks and the increased requirements of companies,” Dmitry Artyukhov said.

    He highlighted the main provisions of the personnel standard: the development of a forecasting system and personnel requirements for promising and popular professions, the training of engineering personnel for high-tech industries, the implementation of training and retraining mechanisms for teaching staff, and the provision of navigation for popular and promising professions.

    Similar agreements with Worldskills Russia and ASI have already been signed by 19 constituent entities of the Russian Federation - Amur, Jewish Autonomous, Kemerovo, Magadan, Nizhny Novgorod, Novgorod, Omsk, Pskov, Rostov, Ryazan, Saratov, Sakhalin and Smolensk regions, the Republic of Dagestan, Ingushetia and Sakha (Yakutia) , Kamchatka, Primorsky and Stavropol Territories.


    By the end of 2019, the personnel standard should be implemented in all regions of the Russian Federation. This instruction was given by Russian President Vladimir Putin to the government together with the Agency for Strategic Initiatives and the Worldskills Russia Union.

    In 2016-2017, the personnel standard was successfully tested in 20 pilot regions: Krasnoyarsk Krai, Novosibirsk Region, Murmansk Region, Yaroslavl Region, Tambov Region, Belgorod Region, Tula Region, Lipetsk Region, Vladimir Region, Samara Region, the Republic of Tatarstan, the Republic of Chuvashia , Ulyanovsk Region, Khabarovsk Territory, Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Perm Territory, Sverdlovsk Region, Chelyabinsk Region, Tyumen Region and Krasnodar Territory.
