Young Professionals in the New Decade: Developing Universal Competences of Universities and Employers

18 Jun , 12:00–13:15

Pavilion G, conference hall G5

Every employer expects university graduates get a certain set of competencies from the educational institution they graduated from. However, often times both professional and personal competencies of graduates widely differ from those expectations. Thus, the employer has to come up with additional strategies to obtain the desired results. In recent years, universities and employers are constantly working to identify the most effective set of competencies and develop them through educational courses, programmes, assessment centres, and other tools. Additionally, there are federal initiatives and instructions from the President of the Russian Federation confirming the need to resolve this issue. What competencies will make up the "perfect young professional of 2030"? Is it possible to articulate a set of personal competences? How can these competencies be influenced by the core of studies? How to complete a competence profile, taking into account professional affiliation? What tools are used and should be used in the near future to identify, assess, analyze, and develop personal competencies? Which competence development support measures are already being implemented and which are still missing?
