Fedorov: a new curriculum “Civil Drone Operator” will be introduced in vocational schools  

Fedorov recalled that last year, together with the Ministry of Education and Science, they launched the “100 workshops” project to create modern spaces for quality training in vocational schools. Applications were submitted by 202 institutions out of 647. Now we have decided on 72 vocational technicians participating in the project; in other vocational schools, workshops will be updated with the help of international partners and businesses.

“Professional technicians and their graduates are the basis for the restoration of the country. Considering that the need for blue-collar professions is constantly growing, future specialists will study in modern spaces with up-to-date equipment. High-quality education is one of the pillars of preserving human capital,” concluded Fedorov.
