Country Project Russia
Russia is reforming its
legislation on education and VET system. One major
problem in a big country is big differences in conditions of VET providers,
which has an effect to quality of training.
ETF supports reforms by contributing to contribute to selected VET discussions
in Russia and promotes the understanding of European concepts and methodologies
in VET and life-long learning in the framework of Copenhagen process, including
evidence-based policy making in form of Torino Process.
The country project of Russia 2012 builds on the Torino Process. The first Russian Torino Process report highlighted quality of VET and guidance and counselling as priorities. Both of these have been high on European Policy Agenda since the launch of the Copenhagen process. Last year ETF organised an international workshop on Quality Assurance, which will be followed up in 2012. ETF will also organise an international workshop on guidance and counselling which is supported by a situation analysis.
Russia is invited to participate in Torino Process 2012 and is expected to do the policy analysis on VET strategies as a self-assessment. ETF continues to support preparation of Torino Process report from the City of Moscow.
Russia also participates in ETF regional project on Lifelong Learning, which explores state of art of continuing training and roles of social partners in the seven Eastern European countries.
The country project addresses Russian federal and regional authorities and stakeholders like VET providers and social partners.
Put simply, lifelong learning means that people can – and should have the opportunity to – learn throughout their lives.
Across the world, certain groups of people are still hard pressed to get the most out of their education and training system.
Partnership between the worlds of work and education is a process that is set to become an integral part of how we go about developing education.
“Employment”: a better guidance contributes to broader economic and social well-being by easing the functioning of labour markets.
Making qualifications transparent and easily readable, even across international frontiers, is a high priority for the ETF.
Teachers are a critical factor in education reforms. The ETF takes therefore the role of schools and teachers seriously throughout its work.
Focusing on key competences is one of the surest ways of keeping education and training relevant in a fast-changing environment.
Governance modes and models have a high correlation with the overall performance of education and training policies, influencing their strategic formulation and implementation.
