Around 90% of TSPU employer-sponsored students will work at Tomsk schools
According to representatives of the university around 90% of applicants who have entered Tomsk state pedagogical university in 2016 under employer-sponsored program are going to work at schools of Tomsk regions after graduation. As it was mentioned earlier: there has been significant shortage of pedagogical staff in Tomsk region during the last decades. In order to solve this problem nearly the half of 358 budgetary seats in TSPU are allocated for applicants that apply under the employer-sponsored program (employer pays for education of a student and the latter is obliged to work for the employer). "Although the Tomsk region in our main requester, we also have employer-sponsored students from other regions, like Altai and Kemerovskaya Oblast'. But still 90% of such students came from Tomsk region. We have maintained distribution system and offer job placement options to graduate students. But employer-sponsored students are ought to work at institution mentioned in the agreement" – said Andrey Mikhailichenko director of admission department and social work of TSPU.
