Children's Industrial Extracurricular Education (Russia)
Extracurricular activities and additional educational programs are considered as an element of the system of children’s vocational guidance: empirical studies demonstrate a high potential for vocational training and development, as well as the development of competencies focused on choosing a profession. At the same time, there is specific focus on activities related to vocational guidance and career education. In order to increase the effectiveness of programs that provide educational and professional transfer as their ideal result (the "school – university – enterprise" model), it is important to involve the industry partners that provide not only financial or logistical support, but set a reference professional image. This data is based on survey of children, teachers and managers of children’s maritime and railway extracurricular education organizations and programs conducted in 2021 and 2022 and includes 3,539 respondents from 37 regions of the Russian Federation.
