Jobs of the Future

Project on the educational programs’ implementation on the Future Skills project (Jobs of the Future) will become the norm for universities after testing of all its algorithms and processes. 

This was stated on Tuesday by Dmitry Afanasyev, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Education and Science at an online press conference in TASS dedicated to the results and further plans for the promising skills’ introduction into university training programs.

As Dmitry Afanasyev noted, it is very important that all the project algorithms receive practical hardening.

“After that, it will move to a certain process stage, it will simply be a normal tool that universities will use in order to form new lists and specialties with methodological help from the agency and universities that are the founders of the movement. Since the world will change further, new opportunities will open up,” said Afanasyev.

“It is a correct and, most importantly, timely initiative of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia, aimed at ensuring that the key focus of the educational process is not only on providing fundamental students’ training, which our higher school has always been famous for, but also on the skills’ formation for jobs of the future. That is, it is training based on the results of a forecast, foresight, which means it is a preliminary action. Another thing is that this requires appropriate production facilities – teachers who will be able to form these skills in the younger generation,” said Pavel Seleznev, First Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Mass Communications of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation.

In 2021, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, the Agency for the Development of Skills and Professions and universities-federal centers are implementing a project to introduce educational programs on the Future Skills project (Jobs of the Future) in Russian higher education institutions.
