NFP Helps Developing Vocational Education Across Primorye

Vocational schools in the region are willing to change approaches to the training they provide based on the requests coming from employers. “Reformers” — participants of the “Vocational Training Change Leaders. Management Track” initiative — visited the construction site of the Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizer Plant (NFP).

The guests learned about construction stages and further employment opportunities at the largest chemical plant in the region. The Company has been contacting with universities and vocational schools for long and treats such meetings as a chance to amend training programs, so that every graduate could work where they belong.

“It is an impressive and a large-scale construction project. All employees we met are encouraged and motivated. I can feel they really love this place and stay focused on doing everything they can to hire recent graduates and develop the town,” said Ms Valentina Nestulya, deputy project manager and youth policy officer, the Far Eastern Academy of Vocational Training.

The purpose of the “Vocational Training Change Leaders. Management Track” project is to introduce a management solution to local vocational schools, which would allow training competitive and highly-demanded professional employees in the market. NFP will become the largest employer with its headcount reaching 1,500 people after the start-up, 80% of them are to be local.
