Qualifying rounds for the final of the VI National WorldSkills Russia championship have started in the Ulyanovsk region

The championship of working professions in the sphere of transport and logistics will take place from 7 to 24 May at the aviation college (Interregional Competence Center).


Upon an initiative of the Governor Sergey Morozov, the Ulyanovsk region was one of the first places in the country to join the WorldSkills Russia movement in 2013.

In 2018, the region will become the venue for qualifying rounds among regions of the Russian Federation in five fields of competence. These include body repair, maintenance and repair of motor vehicles, car painting, maintenance of heavy vehicles and maintenance of aviation equipment. The competitions will be attended by 140 contestants and 140 experts from 69 regions. In particular, it is expected to see Svetlana Kraychinskaya, the Deputy Director General for Personnel Training and the Director of the Academy of the Young Professionals Union (WorldSkills Russia).

According to Natalya Semyonova, the Minister of Education and Science of the Ulyanovsk region, the Interregional Competence Center was selected as a venue for the championship for the second consecutive year.

"Now the establishment has unique infrastructure, which includes upgraded laboratories and offices, a hostel for 100 people, and modern equipment for transport maintenance and logistics. Construction of this facility was supervised by the Governor Sergey Morozov. Thanks to his support, 400 million rubles were allocated from the regional budget for this purpose", - Natalya Semyonova said.

This year it will be the first time when children under the age of sixteen from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kurgan, Moscow, Samara and Tambov regions will compete along with adults on three competences: body repair, maintenance of aviation equipment, and car painting. The task will also be as close as possible to the WorldSkills standards for adults.

The championship also includes a business programme, which will involve representatives of the Union "Agency of Development of Professional Communities and Skilled Workers" (Worldskills Russia), national experts of the WorldSkills Russia Union, and representatives of enterprises and the business community.
