Professional Orientation Work at the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Belarus
Since 2002, the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs has been conducting active Professional-orientation work with students in cadet schools, schools, lyceums, and gymnasiums, in which juridical classes and groups are created. The main task of this work is to identify among young people worthy candidates for admission to study at the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, other higher education institutions of law, and then subsequent service in the internal affairs bodies. At the same time, another equally important task is being implemented – the prevention of offenses among young people.
The Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs on the basis of cooperation agreements cooperates with 68 institutions of secondary education, including cadet schools, the Specialized Lyceum of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Together with the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, pedagogical teams, territorial bodies of internal affairs and education administrations organize career guidance with students.
The Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs has created an effective system of vocational guidance work with students. A significant role in it is assigned to organizing and conducting visits and excursions to the militia educational establishment for students of juridical classes who become familiar with the conditions of education and residence of cadets, participate in creative competitions and juridical competitions, solemn rituals of taking the Oath, graduation officers.
Also, the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs holds open days at its base, as well as in various cities of Belarus, for example, on the basis of law enforcement units.
An important component of career guidance work was the visits of cadets to interacting educational institutions. The cadets regularly travel to the established educational institutions, hold thematic talks with students of juridical classes about the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and their faculties, and share their own experience in preparing for entrance examinations.
Every year, the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs conducts a republican creative essay competition “We choose the path” and the Republican legal Olympiad “Femida”. Also our Academy together with the public association “Belarusian Union of Suvorov and Cadet” organizes the annual republican intellectual and creative Olympiad “Patriot”.
Another form of Professional-orientation work with students has shown its effectiveness - a visit to interacting educational institutions by the heads of the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, including the head of the Academy.
Career guidance work with students brings real results. After graduation, many young people come to the service in the internal affairs bodies.
The Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs develops and improves professional and orientational work with students and invites all interested institutions of general secondary education to cooperate.
