OREANDA-NEWS  More than 30 thousand students of the capital's colleges completed practical training at more than seven thousand enterprises and organizations of the city in the first half of the current academic year and some of them have already been able to find work. Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development, said that senior students who have proven themselves have already received job offers and will be able to continue their studies on an individual schedule.

We have set a goal to train a professional in Moscow colleges who, immediately after completing his studies, will be able to perform real work tasks. This allows the employer not to waste time on retraining or retraining our graduate. Previously, only 30 percent of the time was devoted to practice and skills development, but today immersion in the professional environment begins from the first year, and takes at least 70 percent of the entire training time. In the first half of this academic year alone, 30,000 college students were trained at more than 7,000 enterprises in our city," said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development
