‘An enterprise cannot grow more efficient or more productive without skilled staff. I am positive this partnership agreement will give a new impulse to ROST ORLEU, WorldSkills, vocational cadre training, and exchange of advanced educational expertise between Russia and Kazakhstan,’ Fedorov said.

ROST ORLEU Association was set up in November 2013. The agreement was signed by KAZENERGY and ChTPZ Group as well as by Karaganda Polytechnic School and Pervouralsk Metallurgical School during the Transfrontier Forum in Yekaterinburg. The Association’s main goal is to build up on industrial partnership between Russia and Kazakhstan as early as at the cadre training stage.

‘Both countries’ industrial communities were in favor of the idea of vocational schools, since they are all interested in the students’ horizontal, sequential integration into Russia and Kazakhstan’s leading enterprises. The association aims to enhance and maintain the prestige of blue-collar jobs outside the industrial community, to cooperate with the leading industrial enterprises, to help young graduates find a job, to do some volunteer work, and to take part in major industrial exhibitions and other events,’ the press service says.
