Winners and prize-winners of the profiles included in the list of RSOS will receive benefits and advantages when entering universities.

Participants will have to solve practical problems related to social and technological problems: develop services for education automation and human-machine interfaces, design robotic systems, create environmentally friendly energy sources, flexible energy systems and much more. The team format of the competition has also been preserved.

In the 2020/21 academic year, the organizers will focus on comprehensive training for participants in order to receive educational programs on profile topics that can be used at continuing education sites throughout the country.

The first qualifying stage of the Engineering Olympiad of the NTI Circle Movement will begin on October 1. During it, theoretical knowledge in school subjects will be tested. The participants who have passed to the second qualifying stage will have to unite in teams to solve complex problems in the chosen direction.

The workshops are equipped with interactive and software systems, digital laboratories and other modern computer equipment.

The opening of new classrooms will expand the number of professional training programs, as well as introduce modern technologies for assessing the quality of training graduates of basic educational programs based on a demonstration exam, including the WorldSkills method. In turn, additional education programs will be implemented using e-learning and distance learning technologies. 

Previously, the college was accredited by the Demo Exam Centers in two competencies. This will allow graduates who pass the demo exam to receive a Skills Passport. They will also be included in the international information system Competition Information System (CIS), a database of young professionals, access to which is provided to leading enterprises – employers for searching and recruiting.

It should be noted that technical schools and colleges of the region receive grants for the creation of modern workshops for the third year in a row. This year, in addition to the pedagogical college, classrooms will be equipped at the Komsomolsk College of Technologies and Service and the Khabarovsk Industrial and Economic College. In total, 14 workshops will be equipped by the end of the year. Next year, four more vocational education institutions will receive state support. 146.3 million rubles will be distributed between the Khabarovsk road-building technical school, the Khabarovsk college of water transport and industry, the Khorsky agro-industrial technical school and the Governor’s aircraft building college.
