Dual Education in Regions of Russia: Models, Best Practices, Growth Prospects
Dual education systems in vocational education operate so that students both study and engage in practical work experience through two separate institutions, such as a school and company. The Russian Federation’s Agency for Strategic Initiatives has implemented a project in order to train workers to comply with the requirements of high-tech industries using ‘Dual Education’ systems. As an evaluation of this initiative, this paper indicates that best practices are found in growing sectors, with improved investment climates, reduced obstacles for business, and quality public administration. Contingencies of the effectiveness of these programmes are also discussed in order to demonstrate how the best dual education practices should be developed in regional industries with adequate financial and material resources.
