About conference


Foreign professional training is one of the main components of the educational process in the system of ongoing education. Specialists trained by educational institutions tend to work for international companies where foreign language communication is an integral part of their professional activities. Ability to solve professional tasks quickly, in a quality manner under the conditions of force majeure, taking into consideration the specific features of clients and partners, communicating appropriately in foreign language, is an essential factor for the specialist's demand under the conditions of harsh market laws and high competition. At the same time, it is necessary to understand that today's schoolchildren, 9-11 grades school-leaver, as a rule, starts to perform their job functions within the framework of competences mastered only in 5-7 years. In the rapidly changing business space, this leads to a catastrophic deepening of the gap between the employer's requests and the results of mastering the specialty, as well as to the growth of dissatisfaction and social exclusion among young professionals.
