LPR Council of Ministers approves job placement plan for graduates

LUGANSK, August 7 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The Lugansk People’s Republic Council of Ministers has approved the employment plan for vocational school and university scholarship graduates, LPR Education and Science Minister Nikolay Klipakov said at a press briefing at the Lugansk Media Centre.

“The resolution had been drawn by the LPR Ministry of Education and Science and approved by the Republic’s Tripartite Commission for Labour Relations,” Klipakov said.

“It establishes the job placement procedure in cooperation with employers, education institutions and prospective employees.

"The objective is to supply skilled specialists graduating from domestic education institutions to the labour market," the deputy minister said.

The resolution defines the notion “young specialist,” the guarantees they enjoy and their obligations. 

Under the document, full-time scholarship students placed in a job have to work one year after getting their professional qualifications and two years after getting the qualifications of mid-level specialist.

A three-year employment record is required of graduates having a bachelor’s, specialist’s and master’s degree or medical interns. (The mandatory employment record is cut to one year if the master’s degree holder previously worked with bachelor’s or specialist qualifications).

“This is how it will work: each ministry which has dedicated education centres will finalise the job placement plan based on companies’ requests. Using this document as guidelines, the education centre will form its employment commission which will consider job opportunities for each graduate. 

The resolution lists the groups entitled to incentives and the cases where graduates are not assigned to workplaces and have to look for a job themselves.

“They can choose jobs themselves in case of health problems, difficult family circumstances etc. The scholarship graduate is exempt from mandatory job placement if they pay back the education costs incurred by the state,” Klipakov said.
