The system of additional education in Russia
Study is not limited to school only. In order for a child to grow up to be a comprehensively developed person with a broad outlook, in addition to school, he must attend various creative and sports activities. Many parents take extracurricular development frivolously, calling such classes "circles." In fact, all extracurricular activities are called supplementary education and is of great importance in the development of a child.
Until the 90s of the last century, there was practically no talk about the system of additional education for children in Russia. Schoolchildren attended classes at schools and houses of children's creativity, and went to sports classes in sports children and youth schools of the Olympic reserve. However, the main task of such institutions was to take children after school so that they would not hang around the streets while their parents were at work.
The beginning of the Russian system of additional education takes in 1992. Then the government approved a new law, which said that education should be made more humanistic and democratic through additional education programs.
The main goal of such a system is to activate the creative potential of each child. Therefore, supplementary education should meet its needs for knowledge of the world and create conditions for prosperous and safe development.
In order for additional education programs to have a greater effect before visiting them, first of all, you need to pay attention to the wishes of the child. Usually, by the age of 6, children can already more or less clearly articulate their needs and desires. For a more correct choice of the sphere of additional education, you can also monitor the abilities and aptitudes of the child with a psychologist. In the future, this will allow you to choose the right classes for productive development.
Many modern parents purposely neglect the system of additional education, not wanting to overload their children. In reality, the child gets tired of idleness much more. In addition, additional education performs not only educational and educational functions. During the passage of programs to pre-school children develop skills of communication and self-realization, which will be useful to them in adult life.
There is such a tendency that schoolchildren who actively attended additional education programs in childhood become so accustomed to continuous development that even after entering the university, they are looking for various extracurricular activities. Therefore, Russian universities are actively becoming part of the system of additional education.
On the basis of universities programs of additional professional education of various profiles are implemented. As a rule, the list of programs depends on the university. Moreover, a person who is not a university student can complete the program and receive a certificate of additional professional education. To enroll in the program, you must go to the university website and find the section "Additional vocational education."
