Modern Moscow colleges are high-tech vocational education centers where students study, schoolchildren get to know their professions, and adults are educated. Muscovites can get their first professional skills at school.
“Today, schools have a wide range of areas of study: technical specialties, engineering, medical, scientific classes, that is, you can always try yourself in one area or another, so as not to make mistakes in the future in life. Well, a lot of work is being done by Moscow colleges, on the basis of which you can also get not only advice and skills, but also a profession. The entire system in Moscow, from school education, secondary vocational and higher vocational education, is closed and constitutes a single whole, ”explained Sergei Sobyanin.
The Moscow Mayor also noted that it is important for young professionals to be able to improve their qualifications and their level, as well as not to be afraid to look for new ways in personal development, to get a new education.
“At present, the main thing is not only to get a specialty, the main thing is to develop skills and a desire to constantly update your knowledge. If you have such a commitment to new knowledge, then you will always be at your best, ”he stressed.
In Moscow colleges, not only young people study, but also adults who find themselves in life through new specialties.
“With regard to advanced training, we, as you know, are now implementing special quick courses in colleges. Within six months, literally, you can get a first-class specialty. In addition, world-class centers of competence are being created in the colleges themselves, where you can also improve your qualifications, ”added Sergei Sobyanin.
More than 95 thousand students study in colleges (64.6 thousand people on a budgetary basis and 30.5 thousand people on an off-budget basis). Training is carried out in 50 specialties from among the most popular new and promising professions in the labor market in such areas as land transport engineering and technology, architecture, construction and housing and communal services, aerospace engineering, industrial equipment and communication systems, technosphere safety and jurisprudence, service and light industry, organization of services in public catering.
Since 2018, metropolitan colleges have been implementing the Effective Curriculum Project, which involves:

– inclusion in the educational program of modules on the competencies of FutureSkills, including the design of 3D printing in construction, diagnostics, maintenance and repair of a hybrid electric installation – electric vehicles and electric buses;
– improving language literacy (increasing the number of hours for studying professional English in accordance with the profile of training);
– supplementing educational programs with modules aimed at developing DigitalSkills competencies;
– use of the results of the demonstration exam according to WorldSkills standards not lower than marks “four” and “five” as indicators of the effectiveness of the level of mastering digital and language competencies of students.
Evaluation of results
College students take a demonstration exam according to WorldSkills Russia standards, as a result of which they receive a Skills Passport. The advantage of passing the demonstration exam is that the graduate demonstrates the acquired skills and abilities in practice, and the employer has the opportunity to evaluate his work and select the necessary personnel for himself. This also gives the student an additional employment opportunity.
During the demonstration exam, representatives of promising and high-tech enterprises, partner enterprises of colleges and the WorldSkills movement act as experts. In the 2020/2021 academic year, about 25 thousand people from 80 educational organizations took part in the demonstration exam according to WorldSkills Russia standards for 115 competencies.
Interaction with employers and employment
Moscow colleges interact with employers – business and city structures. This gives students the opportunity to acquire a profession that is in demand by the city’s economy, which guarantees employment after training.

The Tsaritsyno College of Management, Hospitality and Information Technology cooperates in the field of personnel training with the Domodedovo airport. The Moscow State Educational Complex has opened departments for joint training of personnel on the basis of a number of enterprises, including the Moscow Machine-Building Enterprise named after V.V. Chernyshev with the support of the Moscow regional branch of the Union of Machine Builders of Russia, Scientific and Production Center for Gas Turbine Engineering “Salyut”, Technopolis “Moscow”.
“Working specialties are in great demand today. Another thing is that not all enterprises have high wages. This is a separate issue. Nevertheless, highly qualified specialists will be in demand for sure. And in the defense industry, and in the aerospace, missile, aviation industry, – said Sergei Sobyanin. “I am sure that in Moscow there will be something for you according to your level and your request.”
Over the past three years, the volume of manufacturing in the capital has grown by about 40 percent. At the same time, high-tech modern production prevails, which replace large factories.
“In big cities, industry is becoming one of the main clusters, the main sectors of development. It becomes different, but it develops precisely in them, because it is consumers who are in cities and it is near them that products are produced: from garment factories, confectionery factories to processing centers, technoparks, ”added the Mayor of Moscow.

In the capital’s colleges, 379 demo exam centers and 45 specialized competence centers have been established. The sites are accredited by the Young Professionals Union (WorldSkills Russia) and meet all global trends in the training of highly qualified specialists.
This helps to significantly improve the quality of education. For example, when studying mechatronics, pneumatic stations and production lines are used to automate the production process. When teaching welding technologies, an industrial robot is used for welding, when studying prototyping, 3D printers are used, and when training turners and milling machines, numerically controlled machines.
