The authorities firmly decided to develop a system of vocational education in the country.
The officials consider that not everyone should become a student and are thinking how to attract the youth to the manufacturing sector. A BSU professor Barys Panshyn shared his opinion with Narodnaya Gazeta.
“Every head of every enterprise faces two questions. First – personnel. Second one is the modernization of the manufacturing. Highly qualified workers are a necessary condition for contemporary innovation modernization, the professor believes. – Today the graduates of vocational colleges take more than 80% of the working positions at enterprises. The Belarusian system of vocational technical education includes more than 50 colleges and is deservedly considered the best in the CIS. And its structure is in many ways similar to that of the professional traineeship of workers in France. Professional workers for the large part provide for social and economic stability also in Austria, Germany and France at the time when the crisis is fevering other EU countries”.
Media, according to the professor, must create a cult of a modern worker: educated, reliable, able to earn for a decent level of living with his head and hands.
“Young workers should be prepared with our key competitive advantages in mind. There is electronic manufacturing in Belarus, large and middle scale machine building is developed, the professor says. – Those are not iPhones, for mass assembly of which hundreds of engineers and hundreds thousands assemblers need to be engaged. Belarus is the motherland of BelAZes, MAZes and Belarus tractors. The humanity can live without an iPhone. But without a tractor it can’t”.
