The Technical School Today

The aim of the Technical School is to prepare specialists of high professionalism and inner culture.

The main tasks are:

. to accustom the students to common to all mankind values; to form their adequate behaviour.

. to develop their abilities for further training and for conducting their professional activities.

. to seize ethic and legal rules regulating the relations between the people, towards the society and the surroundings

Nowadays the Technical School lives a very interesting and full life.
It has achieved a lot during these 70 years. These achievements belong both to teachers and students.

For example, our girl-students regularly take prize places in aerobic in our town and region. In table-tennis and dumb-bell our students took the second place in the competition between the Technical Schools of the
Ministry of economic development and Trade in Kursk (1999). We constantly take first places in town games.

In accordance with the aesthetical direction of education we have a general class meeting (or class-hour) when we visit concerts, performances, listen to the people of art. Amateur Student groups of the Technical School took part in the festival "Students' spring" and became laureates.

It is a tradition now at the Technical School to meet with its graduates – this is a real connection of generation. While talking at such meetings the managerial staff of the enterprises tell about the shortage of specialists in the region. The market demands competent and qualified specialists of modern direction (business-man; lawyers; managers, marketers)

That's why by adding a new two-storied building we enlarged our material and technical basis and could open new specialities:
"Management", "Commerce", "Jurisprudence", "Marketing", "Organization of service at public catering establishments." Our graduates come with presents, tell about their experience of work, invite our students to work to their enterprises. Beautiful vases, pictures, VCR "Samsung", telephones, clocks – all these and many other presents of our graduates decorate the studies and lecture-rooms of the Technical School.

In 1989 two computer classes and a cabinet were opened here, they gave our teachers and students the opportunity to make themselves familiar with new computer technologies. Most of our teachers in order to solve our main methodical problem "Computerization of educational process" had finished computer courses. But that wasn't enough, the year 1999 showed the necessity of the creation of a laboratory "Training Accounting"

The laboratory is well equipped with modern computers with legal information systems "Consultant-accountant", "Directory on taxes and taxation", software "Best". Future lawyers work with the programme
"Consultant Plus".

In 1991 there was organised a methodical cabinet at the Technical
School, and Mariya Vladimirovna Bogacheva became its director. Our methodical work is directed on creation of conditions for teachers for their fruitful work. The main tasks of this cabinet are to teach, to help, to interest. During the whole history of the development of the Technical
School the teaching staff puts and solves concrete methodical aims, based on the principle of training high qualified specialists, meeting the requirements of educational standard. The distinctive feature of the improvement of our methodical basis is step-by-step research accumulation and the highest possible utilization of all methodical knowledge in all aspects of pedagogical activities.

Nowadays the pedagogical staff works out educational and methodical complexes on different disciplines, collection of practical works, tasks in economics, accounting. There is a methodical council at the Technical
School, O.V. Kovalyova, the Deputy Director in educational work, is its
President, under the direct guidance of the Council the certification and recertification of teachers and masters of practical training has been held. Great attention is paid to young teachers. No one is left aside.

The chairmen of cycle commissions help the teachers in their methodical work. There are 10 of them at the Technical School. They are headed by the teachers of the highest category. At the end of each year there is a competition for the best commission. The winners are awarded with valuable presents.

It has already become a tradition to hold the weeks of specialists, when each cycle commission presents its speciality. Many interesting, necessary and useful things are held: presentations of goods on the bases of practical training (they are usually organised with the help of our teachers and masters of practical training); setting of theme tables, exhibitions of cocktails, cookery, confectionary prepared by students.

Practical training of students, which takes from 40% to 50% of the whole volume of training, helps to raise the quality of future specialists.
During their industrial (professional) training the students consolidate and deepen the knowledge they have got during, their theoretical training, acquire skills and habits.

There are different forms and methods of practical training: educational, industrial, technological, before the diploma (on their speciality).

Practical training takes place at the largest and the best enterprises of trade and public catering in the towns of Caucasian Mineral Waters. Many of them are headed by our graduates.

On the group of non-food products the bases for practical training are:
"The Department Store № 1" LTD, "Children's World" LTD in Pyatigorsk; on the group of food products – the Shop № 1 Public Limited Company (PLC)
"Holod" in Pyatigorsk.

The practical training of the students of the speciality № 0601 "

Accounting" at the Technical School.

Some arrangements (many of which have become traditional – "Ordaiting",
Teachers' Day", 'The New Year", "The Students' Spring", "The Day of
Health", the meeting of KVN teams) take an important place in educational system of the Technical School. All these arrangements are held collectively, uniting a large number of students, who divide according to their interests to managers, script-writers, painters, sound producers, decorators and participants of amateur art activities. Such groups are not stable, they are organized for one arrangement but they let all the students try their abilities in different creative groups.

Active participation of students in social life of the Technical
School, high quality of their studies, their participation in sports championships help to organize competitions for the title "The best student of the group", "The best student of the Technical School". The students themselves nominate candidates considering the results of the academic year and the Pedagogical Council affirms them.

The best students are awarded with scholarships of the Ministry, the
Governor of Stavropol region and the mayor of Pyatigorsk.

Good material base, sports, educational, methodical work assist in graduation of specialists in accordance with the demands of the State
Educational Standard. In spite of its so respectable age Technical School lives a bright, colorful life…
