Students Associated with the ‘INK Corporate Group’ at Irkutsk State National Research University Received an Additional Scholarship
Agreements were signed with 65 third and fourth-year students. This is the first large-scale INK project implemented jointly with Irkutsk State National Research University. A similar program is in place at the same university to train personnel for the Irkutsk Polymer Plant.
Additional vocational training with a separate curriculum was implemented and sponsored by INK. Students receive theoretical and practical training in an advanced curriculum. Starting in April 2022, the first groups will begin paid internships at the field, and upon completion of their training they will be employed by Irkutsk Oil Company.
INK is interested in developing an external talent pool, with a school-to-university-to-company program in place since 2018. In Ust-Kut and Kirensk, INK-Classes were opened, where students of 10th and 11th grades study the specialized subjects necessary for entering the professions demanded at INK. In March 2022, the INK Academy, a joint educational project with the Irkutsk State University, was launched in Irkutsk. Free online and in-person classes are available to all interested students in grades 7-11 from the city Irkutsk and the Irkutsk region. The course will continue until the end of May.
