ChelPipe's and Rimera's Home Regions Are Among the Few to Roll Out Dual Education System

The Republic of Tatarstan and Sverdlovsk Region, the presence regions for ChelPipe's pipe-making and oilfield service (Rimera Group) divisions, have become the finalists in a contest run by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives under the Government of the RF. The event was looking to identify 10 constituent entities of the Russian Federation in which to introduce the dual education system.

The contest committee was made up of officials from ASI, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, Ministry of Labour and Social Security, Russian-German Foreign Trade Chamber. ASI plans to sign special agreements with the finalists for the Agency to provide support for the dual education model. Sverdlovsk Region has also been given a “mentor” status, as a region able to share its experiences with those only preparing to train labor force based on the new model.

ChelPipe has been promoting the dual education model in Russia for several years now. Its PNPP Training Center (part of the Group) in Pervouralsk and the College of the Future Tatarstan set up by Rimera in Almetyevsk are the flagships of the dual education concept in their respective regions. Both colleges have been created with the support of the regional public authorities and are committed to training qualified industrial labor.

As of now, 102 first and second-year Almetyevsk Professional College students are enrolled in the programs of the College of the Future Tatarstan, hosted by Alnas on its industrial site. Currently the College turns over its premises to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan, which offers the opportunity of using the College together for educational programs and getting access to budget funds. The agreement was signed by Engel Fattakhov, the Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan, and Vitaly Sadykov, Rimera Group Chairman of the Board, at a meeting on the HR needs of the economy, held in Almetyevsk on December 16, and attended by Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the Republic of Tatarstan.

Last year PNPP Training Center attracted 2.5 applicants per place in white metallurgy professions. That was the third admission held under the Future of the White Metallurgy program. The project generating a lot of interest, 50 extra budget-funded places were contributed by the Ministry of Education of Sverdlovsk Region. The center provides training to 650 students.
