The Ural Chemical Technology College from Gubakha won the federal competition of the Professionalism project.

On July 25, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Education announced the results of the selection of participants in the Professionalism project, which will receive grants in 2023 for development of education and production clusters. The education and production cluster based at the Ural Chemical Technology College (UCTC) was declared the winner of the selection process, entitling it to a federal grant of 100 million rubles.

The grant money will be used to equip the center with modern training laboratories and workshops and to develop new educational programs focused on practical needs of the employing companies. The center will focus on training specialists in Chemical Technology of Organic Substances and Technology of Analytical Control of Chemical Compounds, including targeted recruitment. There are plans to renovate the college's facilities and acquire new machine tools, laboratory equipment, teaching aids and interactive layouts. This will enable college students to learn even more effectively how to utilize the equipment used in modern production.

PJSC Metafrax Chemicals was the main partner of the UCTC in the Professionalism project, which will also make its own investments in the development of the education and production cluster.
