Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the research is to develop scientific and methodological recommendations for indicative evaluation and systemic management of the professional and qualification potential of the digital society and to approbate them by the example of modern Russia.

Design/methodology/approach

The authors use the proprietary algorithm of the creation and implementation of the professional and qualification potential of the digital society. Based on the new algorithm, a proprietary methodology of indicative evaluation of the professional and qualification potential of the digital society is developed.

Findings

The authors offer a complex of recommendations for systemic management of the professional and qualification potential of the digital society and their approbation by the example of Russia in 2020, which allow achieving high effectiveness of this management. The results of approbation of the proprietary methodology and recommendations by the example of Russia in 2020 showed that the professional and qualification potential of the digital society is rather high and well-balanced; it is normal but has perspectives for an increase. There is an imbalance, which is caused by the domination of the development of the education market over the market of labor and entrepreneurship. Based on this, managerial measures are recommended for the development of the professional and qualification potential of the digital society in Russia.

Originality/value

The offered algorithm sets the foundation of an expanded view of the studied process, according to which the professional and qualification potential of the digital society is not only limited by the educational market but also covers the labor market and entrepreneurship. This view is revolutionary for modern Russia. The advantages of the authors’ methodology of indicative evaluation of the professional and qualification potential of the digital society include the usage of the complete set of qualitative and quantitative indicators, delimitation of indicators as to the stages of the algorithm, and the improved matrix for treatment of the results.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the paper is to study the factors that influence the effectiveness of the professional and qualification and innovative potential of youth in a university environment. The authors focus on the main institutional factors of the external and internal character, which are the barriers to this reproduction process and do not bring the expected result—renovation of the qualitative structure of the workforce. The authors determine the essence and main characteristics of the process of reproduction of innovative and professional and qualification potential in higher school by the example of Russia.

Design/methodology/approach

Methodology of the work includes SWOT analysis, which allows distinguishing the potential (D) of strong (F) and weak (G) opportunities and the level of indicators of realization of (R) opportunities (V) and threats (U) of the research object.

Findings

It is substantiated that factors-barriers of innovative and professional and qualification potential could be overcome with the help of the formation of the mechanism of interaction of labor market, market of educational services, and innovative university complexes.

Practical implications

The obtained results allow determining the main threats with a high probability of implementation in the process of formation of professional and qualification potential in the system of higher education and forming the perspectives of solving this problem.

Originality/value

Originality of this study consists in the totality of obtained results, which show the specific features of reproduction of innovative and professional and qualification potential of youth: determination of strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the process of formation of innovative and professional and qualification potential in the system of higher education.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to study the specifics of state management in the sphere of reproduction of the socio-professional structure of society.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper is based on the provisions of neo-Marxism; structural and functional approach, ideas of the concept of constructing the cultural senses, neo-institutional approach, theory of institutional matrices. The paper uses the provisions of the theory of “path-dependence,” in which the effect of institutional inertia of society and its influence on the management institutes are studied. During the research of the specifics of the Russian model of state management of the process of formation and development of professional and qualification potential of the country, the provisions of the concept of power-property are taken into account.

Findings

The authors note that ineffectiveness of state management in the sphere of formation and development of professional and qualification potential of the Russian society is predetermined by historically established institutes of management and organization of life, which are peculiar for authoritarianism, bureaucracy, principles of redistributive economy, domination of the institutes of power-property and underdevelopment of the institutes of the civil society. This problem could be solved by modernizing the national model of state management based on well-balanced interaction of the basic and complementary socio-cultural institutes, which could increase the effectiveness of management of complex social processes.

Originality/value

It is substantiated the main principles of the modern state regulation of the sphere of training of professional and qualification personnel should be as follows: strategic approach to management, partnership approach to managing education, investments into human capital, supporting the development of institutes of the civil society, debureaucratization of the system of management and formation of favorable legal and economic environment for development of entrepreneurship.

Abstract

Library assistants were originally considered to be professional librarians in the making, and were trained accordingly. With the expansion of libraries and librarianship, Britain's “apprenticeship” system of qualification gave way to formal library school education, and a new category of “non‐professional staff” was created, of people who were unwilling or unable to proceed to graduate‐level qualification. The development of non‐professional certificates of competence in the UK is described against parallel developments in the US, Canada and Australia; the COMLA training modules are also examined. The theoretical and practical issues surrounding training are discussed, training schemes and qualifications in the four countries analysed, and the relative merits of in‐house training and external certificate programmes argued.

Abstract

In the light of Europe’s experience of its Directive on mutual recognition of professional qualifications and the World Trade Organisation’s (WTO) intention to achieve a global marketplace for professional services by identifying “disciplines” which can be applied to all professions, this paper considers a potential methodology for achieving a global system for the free movement of professionals. The paper explains the process of mutual recognition as implemented within the European Union and discusses the approach which the WTO is likely to adopt towards the globalisation of services. The problems which face the surveying profession (including the problem of identifying the various surveying professions which exist in different countries), the role of professional organisations, the nature of “professional competence” and the threshold standards applied to professional competence as a vital component of any mutual recognition process are also discussed.

Abstract

I approach this work in the knowledge that the recruitment and selection of staff is one of the most neglected areas of library management. I have been unable to trace any monograph devoted to the subject published during the past 10 years and few general books on library management spare more than a cursory glance in its direction.

Abstract

Purpose

In 2017 the UK Government decided that the suite of National Professional Qualifications (National Professional Qualifications for Middle Leadership, National Professional Qualifications for Senior Leadership and National Professional Qualifications for Headship) needs to be updated in order to ensure they remained relevant to the changing shape of the educational landscape, particularly through the expansion of multi-academy trusts (MATs). At the same time, the Government proposed a new National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership aimed at the CEOs of MATs. The purpose of this paper is to explore the way in which the new National Professional Qualification (NPQ) programmes are having master’s level criteria embedded into them to facilitate a seamless progression into the master’s level study.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper combines desk research with reflections on the experience of developing the new NPQ programme within higher education institutions (HEIs) and considers the implications of this upon current and emerging HEI practice and research into educational leadership.

Findings

There were a number of key issues highlighted by the paper. Notably, the process of embedding academic criteria into a training programme, which was not used to support the notion of critical reflection. Also, the associated mechanisms of accreditation, existing professional networks and the upskilling of staff delivering the NPQ programme, and a professionally oriented interface between the university, employer and deliverer of the training.

Originality/value

This paper provides an original perspective involving the embedding of master’s level criteria into professional qualifications in the field of educational leadership.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the benefits of reclaiming the idea of professional competence and challenges fragmented approaches to academic qualification and professional recognition. It is argued that academic programmes that are integrated with the requirements for professional recognition can resolve the potentially unhelpful differentiation between “theory” and “practice” and between “knowledge” and “competence”.

Design/methodology/approach

Three contextualised case studies are presented to demonstrate a range of possibilities for developing academic programmes that integrate professional competence in the fields of construction, aviation and management.

Findings

It is argued that the examples described provide some evidence that where competence is conceived of as a matter of open on-going professional development, it can be effectively integrated and aligned with the intended outcomes of academic qualifications. Furthermore, that the examples described demonstrate that the idea of professional competence can operate to ground knowledge in practice contexts and ensure that professional values are positioned as a requirement of being qualified.

Originality/value

The diversity of the examples provided across three distinct sectors illustrate the potential for wider curriculum development opportunities for higher education practitioners. The need to align professional body recognition with academic qualification for higher and degree apprenticeships may also indicate significant implications for policy in this area. The cases presented provide evidence that academic qualifications can be developed that are at the same time recognised by employers as delivering a professionally competent workforce. This kind of development activity can provide both an incentive for employers to pay for education and training and opening opportunities for career progression for those in work.
