– The particular characteristics of our region make us build the educational process in a somewhat different manner, train professional personnel, first of all, from among indigenous inhabitants. Small ethnic village settlements, scattered throughout the territory of Chukotka, which are often located very far from each other and from neighborhood centers, must be staffed with specialists in all areas.

Practical classes are mainly conducted at the facilities of enterprises and organizations of the Chukotka Autonomous Region. Among them are the district hospital,kindergarten "The Golden Key," the junior sports school, the Veterinary Office of the Department of Agricultural Policy and Nature Management, and other social facilities.

Thanks to the development of the quality management system at the college and the introduction of active pedagogical monitoring into the educational process, timely managerial decisions are made and the quality of education is properly evaluated. Such system provides feedback between the administrative and teaching staff and employers thus building corrective influence on the educational process management.

Personal education

Considering high-quality training of specialists as an interrelated process of all educational activities, the administrative staff of the college routinely develops a goal-oriented student mentoring system. The college creates all necessary conditions for training a motivated competitive specialist and a moral human being. Implementing such a system, the college can give students moral compass, a strong spiritual basis, genuine life values, rather than ostensible ones. Systematic influence leads to the development of the "individual –citizen – specialist" model.

Involvement in various out-of-class activities in the group and at the department, both inside and outside the college, contributes to active personality development and  professional competence. There are special interest circles, clubs and studios guided by talented specialists. The performance groups defend the honor of the college at regional, all-Russian and international contests and festivals.

The college's claim to fame is the student ethnic dance ensemble "Ankalin," which celebrated its 12th anniversary in 2017. The ensemble participates in numerous city and district concerts, competitions and festivals including the Day of Education of the Chukotka Autonomous District, festivals "My Chukotka" and "Ergav," the creative contest "Puturen," professional master classes.

The administrative and teaching staff of Chukotka Multidisciplinary College aim high. Their goals include training of competitive graduates prepared for professional activity thanks to well-developed abilities, well-formed competencies, skills, personality traits and the sense of civic duty. High quality of training is confirmed by diplomas and awards for successful participation in competitions of different levels for students of educational institutions of secondary vocational education. For example, in 2018 the college hosted the regional stage of the WorldSkills Russia championship in the Early Childhood Education competency, where college student Marina Rykeva took the first place.

One of priority areas is sports and recreation work that suggests not only doing physical exercise and sports, participation in sports festivals and health days, but also popularization of healthy lifestyle. Six specialized sports clubs are successfully functioning at the college. The volleyball and basketball teams are frequent prize winners of city and district competitions.
