Under this approach, all specialties are proposed to be divided into three groups:
- Specialties that require minimal material and personnel support. For such specialties set a single value of the specialty index (IS = 1).
- Specialties that can be relatively easily distributed through the required number of additional laboratories (additional material costs are shown in Fig. 4.2 as «maintenance costs»).
- Specialties that require individual training. (As individual training involves the involvement of more teachers to train specialists, it is possible to calculate the cost of additional pay and maintenance of specialists (APM)).
These assumptions allow to form such a method of economically justified determination of the value of the specialty index. Within the limits of this technique offer passing of such stages.
Stage 1 (for specialties of the first and second groups). Formation of a standard structure of HEIs as a list of laboratories required for the formation of special (professional) competencies within each of the specialties specified in the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 1146. The formation of a standard structure can be implemented by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine as a generalization of the proposals of several leading higher education institutions of the relevant profile from different regions of Ukraine. As a result of systematization of offers of HEI define a matrix of distribution of kth laboratories and sth specialties as it is resulted in Table 4.8.
