#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Ministry of Education supports the Bologna education system’s abandonment. The department said that the transition to a specialist could improve the quality of teacher training. Russia joined the Bologna system in 2003. The system includes two levels: bachelor and master. The Russian education system also includes training at the specialist level with the educational programs’ development for five to six years.
The department’s press service explained that specialties and the specific qualification’s indication had disappeared with the transition to the Bologna system. The qualification ‘bachelor/master of pedagogical education’ does not correspond to the specific profession ‘subject teacher’, and this creates difficulties in the labor market.
Earlier, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education reported that Russia would develop its own education system. According to its head Valery Falkov, the education system in Russia will become unique, it will be based on the country’s economy’s interests and will give maximum opportunities for students.
