The purpose of the visit was to review the outcomes of the first phase of the College of the Future Tatarstan project. The members of the Civil Chamber praised the efforts made to build and equip the training center and said they were ready to continue contributing to the project.
The social and educational project saw the Almetyevsk-based Alnas manufacturing company build new classrooms and equip these with furniture and advanced computers. Investment in the construction and equipment of the college premises accounted for 60 percent of the funds earmarked for the first phase of the project.
The vocational school can train more than 200 students at a time. The design of the academic building provides for two computer-equipped classrooms with audio equipment, lecture rooms, and a conference hall with a videoconferencing system inside.
“Within the first phase of building a workforce, we laid a foundation for training of highly-skilled professionals,” said Alnas Human Resources Director Ilshat Khaziyev. “We have closely approached a time when students will take their places at the desks of the innovative training center built with the resources of the Russian Government, the Tatarstan Government, the ChelPipe company and Rimera Group. I am confident that implementation of this project will go a long way toward resolving the regional issue of a shortage of young professionals, and help build a personnel reserve so badly needed by the industrial sector today.”
The College of the Future Tatarstan project kicked off at the Almetyevsk Professional College in 2012. The innovative educational project received the support of Russian President Vladimir Putin in December 2012. On February 14, 2013 Tatarstan and ChelPipe signed an agreement to cooperate on the project.
Two groups of students, a total of 52, have been enrolled; they are specialized in metal cutting, and electrical equipment maintenance and repair. Starting in January 2013, top-performing students have received personal scholarships from Alnas and Chelyabinsk Pipe-Rolling Plant (ChelPipe).
