MINSK, 23 May (BelTA) – With end-of-school ceremonies approaching, school leavers are already thinking about where to continue their studies. Education remains very accessible in our country. The main thing is the desire to study, member of the Standing Committee on Education, Culture and Science of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Sergei Klishevich told BelTA.

“The main thing is school graduates' desire to study, their ability to make efforts to enter the university. Our socially-oriented state accompanies a young person from kindergarten to the first job, which is guaranteed for those studying on a budget. In European countries, graduates face a huge employment problem. The liberal economy cannot guarantee young specialists their first job; as a result, unemployment among graduates reaches 50%. Europe needs people who can bring a net income to the employer. Тo one cares where a young specialist will take this experience,” Sergei Klishevich said.

Belarusian graduates have no problems with employment. Building a common education space in the Union State opens up new prospects for young people in Belarus and Russia not only to get in-demand education but also a prestigious job in both countries. “There are programs that make it possible to study in both countries at the same time, for example, remotely. Belarus and Russia are already virtually working in one education space. There are great prospects ahead, because we are actively working on the Union State education roadmap. It will unite the opportunities of both countries,” the MP said.

The quality and prestige of Russian education is already in demand in Belarus. For the Belarusian youth it opens up great opportunities for self-fulfillment and employment. “Today there are about 5,000 Belarusians studying in Russia and about 1,500 Russians studying in Belarus. This is good, because our young people are to build the future. For this they need to be aware of many issues relating to both countries,” Sergei Klishevich said.

In his words, patriotic education, based on love for their homeland, their people, respect for their motherland, culture, traditions and customs takes a special place in the youth policy of the two countries.
