The Labour Market: A Response to the New Challenges
Congress Centre, zone D, conference hall D3

An economy facing new challenges and seeking internal avenues of growth requires the establishment of a modern training system focused on up-to-date professional skills. The demand for graduates of technical schools and colleges is steadily increasing each year. The current objective of training about 1 million specialists for key sectors of the economy within the next 5 years is ambitious and necessitates the use of modern technologies to facilitate the transfer of skills, knowledge and competencies. The requirement is not only for specialists possessing technical skills and working in production, but particularly for those capable of imparting their professional experience, ensuring continuity and the ongoing accumulation of technical knowledge, as well as enriching the corporate culture through attracting and training new personnel. A mentor who possesses practical experience in complex production becomes a vital figure for the new generation of students. But, how can we ensure that the vocational education system has specialists with the necessary communication skills for effective project work? How can we guarantee that educators in educational institutions maintain up-to-date professional skills?
