For the "Days of Kuzbass Universities", university teams prepared master classes, introductory games, trainings and even a technical quiz for high school students. At the meetings, 11th graders asked rectors questions about new specialties, the advantages of higher education in Kuzbass, the infrastructure of universities, opportunities for creativity, sports and recreation. Invited representatives of industrial companies introduced schoolchildren to employment prospects, social support measures for young professionals, as well as targeted training opportunities.
The activities of the career guidance project are planned until March 2022. Meetings will be held with schoolchildren of the Mariinsky, Chebulinsky, Industrialnovsky municipal districts and Novokuznetsk district. In full-time format, they will cover about 1,500 children. At the same time, the target audience is more than 9 thousand graduates who will receive a certificate of secondary education this year.
"In parallel, for the convenience of high school students and their parents, we continue to develop the electronic portal ENTRY42.RF. The resource tells about career guidance events, reports news and helps to navigate important dates for passing the Unified State Exam and admission to university," explained Irina Ganieva, Minister of Science and Higher Education of Kuzbass.
The information partner of the project is the Kuzbass Regional Media Holding. The channel's journalists will cover the events in the format of the TV project "I make a choice! Video blog about Kuzbass universities" and in the social networks of the media holding.
For reference. In 2022, higher educational institutions of Kuzbass are preparing to open admission to full-time education for 6,194 budget places, 300 more than in 2021.
