Актуальное состояние и потенциал развития внешней оценки среднего профессионального образования
Assessment of the quality of education is currently one of the most important issues concerning development not only the education system, but the economy as a whole. Currently, the new system of efficient external quality assessment tools starts to emerge in Russia. It includes such mechanisms and tools as different accreditation systems, and innovative projects, such as WorldSkills. In this paper, the authors make an attempt to answer the question of whether existing mechanisms are able to ensure the proper level of quality of education, which would be recognized not only by the government, but also by the labour market and the general public.
