          In the struggle for jobs to Russians will have to compete with robocuprescue worker in Russia continues rastersize education finally moving away from the Soviet system

          Friday in Russian schools held graduation parties, and admission to universities was launched on Tuesday. Prospective students have to learn under the new standards, the development of which the country in rush switched to the background of the sanctions and the conflict with the West. In fact, we have finally abandon the Soviet system of higher education. But why?

          Admission campaign in Russian universities will last until July 26, with the exception of the universities with additional entrance tests. The first wave of enrollment will fill 80% of budget places to 3 August and a second will be completed five days later. Today’s students have to learn in a fresh, newly developed Federal state educational standard 3++, but in early 2018 should enter into force the new GEF-4, which system continued for a few years. According to the developers it should become the crown of evolution, a breakthrough have integrated all of the “floor” and higher education into a single tool of social mobility.

          The designer of the future

          “The mandatory part will be significantly reduced in favour of variable, and the theoretical in favor of practical. This is reminiscent of the approach used by colleges in the US”

          To date, about 52% of Russia’s adult population have higher education, and each year more than 350 thousand of the applicants apply to the admissions committees of various universities. Now these “same age” are trained to different standards, higher school constantly evolyutsioniruet: GEF-2, GEF-3, GEF-3+, GEF 3++. Almost every generation of students subject to new regulations.

          Why – is clear: labor market and economic realities require updated approaches to system IN, and test results have in practice – real graduates in real life, and with the global digitalisation of society personnel issue becoming ever more acute and complex. The challenge is, on the one hand, to bring in this methodology, the procedure, on the other – creating a system that is mobile and able to adapt to constantly changing demands of employers.

          Therefore, the government has decided to revise the register of occupational standards and give universities autonomy in the choice of methods of training of graduates. Promising GEF-4, to which high school was in 2014, is structured in a fundamentally different way and is based on modules – blocks of disciplines which the student will be able to choose, since the basic (mandatory) part is significantly reduced in favour of variable, and the theoretical in favor of practical. This is reminiscent of the approach used by the colleges of the United States.

          “The new standard will be built on the algorithm of interchangeable blocks, it will be more agile, designed for independent decisions of students. It will be much more design work and practice. Previously, this scheme was only present in specialized units, but in fact varied set of the same disciplines. In the new system, there is definitely a desire for freedom, however, it is unknown how this will be implemented,” said associate Professor of journalism and media Spbgutd Vadim Vysotsky correspondent of the newspaper VIEW.

          The main and only direction of pedagogical work will now become the so-called universal and professional competences. The student must choose the learning objectives in the framework of the future profession and determine the “matrix of competences” – designer disciplines that will help him achieve these goals.

          So high school is finally moving away from the concept of “teach to learn and know” and immediately puts before the student a problem to solve, think, focus and act. It is included in the notion of competence, underlying the GEF: the ability of the employee to implement their competence in practice. It is hoped that this worker is socially adapted, professionally minded, knows how to find their place in the profession and in life. In General, the man of the future is a creative, stress specialist rather narrow profile, possessing the skills of project work, which will now be given special attention.

          It is possible that the quality of theses will be counted even student startups. This was recently stated by the Deputy head of the Ministry of education Grigory Trubnikov.

          The conflict of minds and wallets

          All admit that for the successful implementation of the current strategy of development IN Russia should create a strong and transparent scheme of interaction between the state, University, teacher, student and business. Especially a business. State financing of education is 4% of GDP, which is not enough for a given pace of reform. This led to the so-called optimization of universities, in which part of the universities declared ineffective and spliced with more success, and some even lose their license and disappear.

          However, the involvement of private money in education is not easy.

          On the one hand, good and right, when future employers are not waiting on the sidelines until they “nakaut” ready to frame, and are directly involved in their preparation (including financial).

          On the other, the demands of practice often greatly limiting the freedom of the pedagogical process, forcing the excess applied disciplines. In addition, to establish a personnel request for a future only the strong and developed sectors (e.g., corporations, oil, military-industrial complex), and industries with a predominance of small and medium businesses remain at risk.

          Yet the academic community is not too happy with the introduction of “practitioners” in the learning process, and business, for its part, does not hurry with investments in education. To further motivate the economy Ministry has prepared amendments to the legislation through which financial cooperation with academic institutions allow companies to get tax benefits on the profits. It is expected that this will help strengthen the endowment funds, a classic example of which is considered the Nobel prize: the proceeds from the sale of ownership of Alfred Nobel, was invested in securities, and prize scientists may be given with a percentage of the profits. That is, in the case of education, the University or school not receive the donation in its purest form, and the income from issued by the donors to the capital under the management of any company.

          Today several dozens of Russian universities have endowments, the total volume of which is estimated at 20 billion rubles. The Institute of donations and investment in the country is formed simultaneously with the restructuring of the education system, that is, cautiously.

          As for the teachers, directly embodying the intentions of the developers of the standard in practice, alas, they have become hostages of reform activity, and only time will tell how this will affect the results.

          On the one hand, they required emergency measures, innovations and methodical breakthroughs. On the other, the optimization takes place in such a way that pedsostav is reduced, and the load of the remaining bureaucratic and practical – is increasing. Salaries are the same, which in turn leads to increased social tensions.

          Teachers are easy to understand. They are forced to teach students different courses in different standards (GEF-2, GEF-3, etc.), navigate the new regular grid to try to connect the programme with the requirements of potential employers (often not particularly familiar with the teaching process in General) and constantly prepare a lot of documents and plans. These are not always consistent between settings, universities are subjected to formalized inspections of Rosobrnadzor, which increases the tension in the teaching staff. In the end of GEF-4 are waiting for both with hope and fear.

          History lesson

          To understand why it happened and why we need reform, you need to consider the fate of the national higher education after the Soviet collapse. Once famous Soviet higher education was rigidly synchronized with all the development plans of the country, broken by five-year plans on the road map to a brighter future. It was based on his fundamental and deeply researched system, the order granting the country needs a number of professionals, managers and researchers.

          After the collapse of the Soviet Union, many of them could not meet the market requirements, and the state could not provide them with acceptable income, as a result, people EN masse moved into other professions – someone who is successful, someone not. The lack of a coherent state policy instantly had an impact on the education system itself: youth went to study managers, economists and lawyers on the backdrop of a sharp decline in the popularity of academic and industrial “classics”. Country bred numerous commercial colleges, producing an army of office workers of varying degrees of competence.

          The post-Soviet state educational standards (GOS) of the first generation more or less was formed only by the end of 90-ies. They were built on the demands of the academic community to, at least, to maintain a unified educational space, but synchronization with the labour market did not anticipate: the universities continued to offer popular, but not demanded by the employers direction.

          In 2000 came into force the STATE educational standards of the second generation, more or less consistent with the tariff-qualifying grid, the Ministry of labor. But this version of the standard did not help to overcome the lack of high schools from the market and to make earning a degree has ceased to be an occasion for jokes.

          In parallel, the Russian education started the integration into the European system in the framework of the Bologna process, which required immediate action in case of insufficiency of resources.

          Finally, from the middle of the “zero” began the painful and diverse evolution of the Federal state educational standard (fgos), which had to abandon many of the practices of pedagogy for adaptation of graduates to the changing world (first of these developments seemed priceless).

          Accelerate the process dramatically gave in 2014, when the course launched in the direction of import substitution, and the labor market started shaking from lack of personnel on some flanks and unemployment on the other.

          Now the country has new plans of development – economic, social, territorial. With them was extra synchronized system of education. Each graduate should consider how best to fit into these global plans, but tectonic shifts occur in the system for the sake of it. More precisely, for the sake of his future, and the future of the country as a whole.
