Education Project of YANOS received the highest score of International content for «Contribution to Excellence» (APQO-2022)

Education Project of YANOS received the highest score of International content for «Contribution to Excellence» (APQO-2022)
The organizer of the content between the teams is the Asia Pacific Quality Organization (APQO) that unifies the National Quality Systems of the countries fr om the above mentioned regions in the area of business-processes ACE (Awards for Contributing to Excellence) Teams Competition.

According to the results of the project competition in 2022 three Russian organizations received four stars out of four possible in the category «Presentations of the teams» and Slavneft-YANOS PJSC is between them.
Oil refinery fr om Yaroslavl was recommended as the participant of the content by autonomic and non-commercial organization «Russian Quality System» (Roskachestvo) and is the first in the history of Russian organizations and participants that submitted their projects.

Slavneft-YANOS PJSC was several times the winner of the Award of the Government of the Russian Federation in the Quality Area by implementing and improving one of the most effective management systems and of organization management in the country.

One of the most interesting and developing directions of enterprise is the excellence process of the Human Resources Policy. The YANOS project «School - College - University – Refinery» was devoted to it and sent to the jury of the content.

Since 2018 upon the initiative of General Manager of the Plant Nikolay Karpov the oil refinery has been creating the above mentioned vertical for preparation of high professional personnel for YANOS.
There are many universities and colleges in Russia that graduate blue-collar workers, specialists for the oil refining industry, but their training does not meet YANOS requirements.

Training programs that were specially created and implemented within the framework of the system make it possible to minimize the period of adaptation of young specialists at their profession, since their training is carried out on equipment and a software complex that is as close as possible to what is used at the oil refinery.

Let’s remember that the first stage of education vertical was implemented in 2018 in Lyceum No. 86 of Yaroslavl city wh ere the engineering YANOS class was opened and the students of which study in depth mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science and learn the following programs: «Technical drawing», «In-depth programming», «3-D modeling».

The second stage was implemented in 2019 and highlighted by opening of YANOS-Processes training center at the Yaroslavl State Technical University, which provides university students with new opportunities to study the technology processes of petrochemical production. «YANOS-Processes» includes a laboratory wh ere operating models of the main processes and vessels common in chemical enterprises are collected.

In 2020 «YANOS Center for Professional Qualifications» started to work. This center was created with the Yaroslavl Industrial and Economic College, in which 2 laboratories were opened: «Oil and Gas Processing» for study of oil refining processes and Computer laboratory «Operator of the process units». It was the third stage of program creation.

In 2021 the second «YANOS class» at school No. 4 in Yaroslavl was opened that is the fourth stage of educational project of oil refinery. An in-depth study of chemistry and the English language is a promising direction, since the main universities of the country are preparing and presenting the term papers, degree theses, projects and dissertations in English.

Also in 2021 Slavneft-YANOS PJSC signed the Agreements on cooperation, joint activities in the area of training of high qualified personnel between PJSC «Slavneft-YANOS» and «Russian State University of Oil and Gas (National Research University) named after I.M. Gubkin» (Moscow) and «Kazan Scientific Research Technical University». Thanks to this cooperation the work is underway to improve the skills of existing employees of the enterprise, professional re-training of specialists, as well as attracting of young specialists from other regions of the country.

The experience in building of an educational vertical with the coverage of schoolchildren under the supervision of young professionals and company managers has already yielded excellent results.

Thus, the schoolchildren of «YANOS-classes» became the winners and the prize-winners in 61 competitions at various levels, including three students who became winners of the world's largest annual competition of research and engineering projects for schoolchildren ISEF, and five schoolchildren were among the winners of all-Russian competition «Big Break», held at the international camp «Artek».

The Expert Council of the Jury of the International Competition "For Contribution to Excellence" highly evaluated the work of Russian colleagues from Slavneft-YANOS PJSC and wished them success in the next implementation and improvement of the system.

Moreover, all Russian teams will compete for the following five special awards:

- International APQO ACE Award - Best overall;
- International APQO ACE Award - Best influence on efficiency;
- International APQO ACE Award - Best influence on innovations;
- International APQO ACE Award - Best usage of technologies;
