The government of the Russian Federation launched a strategic initiative entitled "Professionalism". Thanks to the initiative students of certain institutions can get both a highly skilful working specialty in a short period of time and relevant professional experience at production facilities. It can practically guarantee their further employment (success rate of 85%) and, as a consequence, develop regional economies. Having mastered modern working trends, a young person can become a well-paid specialist who is highly valued in the labour market. Currently, about 60% of ninth graders choose secondary vocational education.
