The Arktika Workforce Training Centre is planning to introduce new educational programmes for training specialists in pedagogy and IT, fields that are in high demand in the northern regions of Yakutia. This information was reported to TASS by the director of the centre, Mira Lebedeva.
'We are currently analysing the workforce needs in the areas where we operate. We can confidently say that there is a need for teachers in the Bulunsky district, and based on this, we plan to recruit a pedagogical group in collaboration with the Vilyui vocational and pedagogical college through a network form. Additionally, we are considering the possibility of launching an IT programme in partnership with the Aityyn Digital Technology College (Pokrovsky College),' said Lebedeva.
Lebedeva mentioned that discussions are underway to open such groups in schools located in the Arctic districts of Yakutia, where there are no institutions offering secondary vocational education, such as in Oleneksky, Anabarsky and Srednekolymsky.
The centre also has plans to teach children in the Arctic about the basics of reindeer herding.
The centre is also working towards creating a unified educational cluster for training and retraining Arctic residents in high-demand specialties such as industry, transport, hydrometeorology, housing and utilities, energy, fishing and agriculture.
