The Moscow authorities intend to establish a new standard for pre-professional education from September 1 this year. This was reported on February 5 on the official website of the mayor of the city.
“Pupils of the 10-11th pre-professional grades of the capital’s schools will have ample opportunities for professional self-realization thanks to the new standard of pre-professional education. It includes comprehensive educational programs for each grade, vocational training in colleges, design and research work in universities, as well as acquaintance with future employers and industry experts,” the press service said.
The city authorities noted that the new system will cover all aspects of education, such as studying at school, college, university and at the enterprise. It is noted that training will also be organized taking into account the future specialty, introducing elements of the student’s future profession into subjects.
The press service emphasized that a single standard for pre-professional education projects will help children receive both academic knowledge and high-quality practical training for their chosen profession.
Earlier, on February 3, the Ministry of Education of Russia developed a new procedure for conducting a unified state exam (USE). It is reported that students writing the exam will have the opportunity to change the list of subjects that they indicated in the application. In addition, if there are good reasons, it will be possible to make adjustments to the deadlines for writing the exam.
