An announcement to this effect was made today at the All-Russia Practical Research Conference, Responsible Partnership as a Way to Train Human Resources for the Russian Manufacturing Industry, which was hosted by Alnas plant.
Phase two spans the years 2014 and 2015 and involves expanding the training facilities of the College of the Future Tatarstan by adding a laboratory and a room for experiments, developing new training programs, launching a support system for the best instructors and on-the-job training mentors, arranging refresher training, professional excellence courses, and much more. The Republic of Tatarstan and ChelPipe Group have allocated upward of 200 million rubles in investments for these activities in 2014 and 2015.
The first shipments of equipment for the laboratory will be arriving in the summer of this year. Funds needed to buy modern training packages worth 55 million rubles will come from the Ministry of Education and Science of Tatarstan. Alnas will allocate and refurbish the needed floor space for the training facilities.
According to Engel Fattakhov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan, collaboration between ChelPipe and the Government of Tatarstan in creating the College of the Future Tatarstan is an excellent example of public-private partnership in training human resources for the mechanical engineering industry, which has already started to bear fruit. "After phase one completed by the oil service division of ChelPipe, more than 100 students are currently undergoing training as part of a dual system that involves on-the-job training at industrial facilities. We are already collaborating with the Almetyevsk branch office of Tupolev Kazan State Technical University in providing continuous training as part of the 'high school – college – university' cycle. This will improve collaboration among educational institutions in matters of early professional orientation of schoolchildren while ensuring fruitful cooperation between companies of the mechanical engineering cluster and the municipality", Mr. Fattakhov underscored.
According to Alnas Executive Director Sergei Sachenko, the plant team has now started designing the laboratory: "We expect the College of the Future Tatarstan project to become one of the best examples of state-of-the-art training centers for human resources needed by the Russian mechanical engineering industry. ChelPipe Group has prior experience launching similar breakthrough projects, such as the company's training center in Pervouralsk. The high quality of training has enabled students of the Future of White Metallurgy project to win 5 out of the 6 possible first places at the 2nd regional championship of manual worker occupations, WorldSkills Russia (WSR), outpacing 20 teams from 10 cities of the Urals Federal District. Our immediate plans include providing on-the-job training at the ChelPipe training center for mechatronics students of the College of the Future Tatarstan, Kama Polytechnic College, and Kama State Automobile Mechanic Vocational School as part of preparations for the upcoming WSR championship in Kazan".
The Ministry of Education of Tatarstan and Rimera Group signed an agreement on collaboration as part of the College of the Future Tatarstan project in December 2013. This agreement provides for creating an informational and methodological center for development of professional education in the Republic of Tatarstan with a branch office in Almetyevsk, as well as setting up a resource center jointly with the Almetyevsk Professional College on the premises of Alnas plant.
