Quality Education

Target 4.4

By 2030, substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship.

Impact of stakeholders Our Company has both direct and indirect impact on skills development of young people and adults through educational programmes for employees, schoolchildren, students and young scientists.

Management approach

The Company applies a comprehensive approach to training management: PEI CVE PhosAgro Training Centre has been established. The purpose of the activity of the training centre is to conduct training, retraining, advanced vocational training of bluecollar workers, engineering specialists, specialists and managers of enterprises (organisations, institutions) of various forms of ownership employed in the chemical and mining industry, and in related production areas. The Company has also been implementing the PhosAgro School project (formerly PhosAgro Classes) and the DROZD programme for a number of years in a row, which allow students to unlock their potential for further education in higher educational institutions.


To resolve this task, our Company:

  • via ANO DROZD and PhosAgro School, conducts projects for schoolchildren, students, young scientists;

  • conducts a comprehensive program of partnership with higher educational institutions. From 2015 through 2020, 136 students out of total 746 graduates, who are enrolled in the target programmes at universities, were the Company’s employees. The leading university in the target area of training is St. Petersburg Mining University. Every year, more than 500 students take internships at the Company;

  • The Green Chemistry for Life project was launched on the initiative of UNESCO and PhosAgro with the support of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). Under the project, grants are offered to young scientists working on the application of advanced chemical technologies in such areas as environmental protection, efficient use of natural resources and waste recycling. Since 2013, more than 40 grants have been awarded to young scientists from 29 countries;

  • implements a plan of corrective actions based on the results of a study of the opinions of the Company’s personnel;

  • develops and implements module-based remote training for bluecollar jobs, occupational safety and management skills;

  • develops and introduces online courses aimed at developing personal competencies;

  • develops a system of corporate libraries, guidelines manuals and a knowledge management system as a whole;

  • invests in education in order to train future generations of employees for the Company who have the necessary skills.

Training and Education

Commitments and Targets

By the year 2025:

  • increase the average annual number of training hours per employee by 50 % to 123 hours in order to improve work efficiency;

  • continue to develop social programmes in the field of education in accordance with the goals and provisions of Strategy 2025 with a focus on sustainable development and organic growth of the Company.

Our Results

The company strives to create conditions allowing employees to fully express themselves in their work and to ensure a continuous improvement in their professional and managerial competencies. In 2020, the average number of training hours per employee was 79.5, which is 3 % lower than a year earlier. We see the reason for this in the conducting of the program for transition from full-time to remote learning, which allows a reduction in the time for training without compromising its quality.

The company encourages professional development of the younger generation. Admission to the PhosAgro team of the university graduates who previously graduated from PhosAgro classes can be considered an important result.

More detailed information about all main results of the Company’s activities in the area of educational development is presented in the data book and Integrated Reports.
