Minister of Education Sergei Kravtsov approved the idea of holding a ball for educational advisers on the territory of the Moscow State Pedagogical University. The initiative was taken during a meeting with the regional coordinators of the Navigators of Childhood project
During the meeting, the head of department reported that in pedagogical universities and colleges they can introduce an appropriate program for the training of future educational advisers. He noted that specialists of this profile help to build communication with students and involve them in a positive agenda. The task of the adviser is to give brightness and richness to school life by organizing new sections, theater circles, choirs, self-government centers and museums.
Previously, the online publication “Teacher’s newspaper” reported that since the last academic year, a pilot project has been implemented in Russia to introduce the post of adviser to the director of education in schools. Since the beginning of the implementation of the program, 2.5 thousand positions of advisers have appeared in educational institutions. At the moment, there are specialists in this profile in 2219 schools in ten regions: Stavropol Territory, Bryansk, Vologda, Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Omsk, Sakhalin, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk regions and the city of Sevastopol. From 2023, advisors will appear in all regions.
The Government of the Russian Federation notes that specialists of a new profile have become a link between schools and other institutions. They pay special attention to children who find themselves in a difficult life situation. Thanks to their suggestions, projects were developed to organize centers for children’s initiatives in schools, as well as to launch a program for the development of social activity of primary school students “Eagles of Russia”.
