UFA, July 15 (Itar-Tass) — The authorities of Russia’s Republic of Bashkiria have extended over 1.2 billion roubles to reform the vocational education and training system until 2015, a spokesman for the regional government, Pavel Samoylin, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The project is designed to forecast demand for human resources and create a state order targeted at regional markets.
“There are plans to reform a network of vocational schools and colleges and develop their network interaction,” Samoylin said. “Efficiency of a new approach is ensured through the development of a regional cluster system that will bring together employers and vocational schools.”
By 2015 the republic plans to open another nine multidisciplinary vocational schools and colleges.
