Abstract

This article studies two levels of continuous education: primarily, for technical colleges providing “general secondary education” and further for the college-university integrated system, as related to mathematical disciplines. For research purposes we apply system analysis and competence-related approach, as we consider the education process to be focused on compulsory vocational streaming.
The study provides a brief analysis of definitions “professional competence”, “vocational streaming” and “continuity in education”. It involves more detailed analysis of the education contents being applied within the methods system.
The studies are mainly based on the leading engineering college in Belarus – Minsk State Higher Radio-Engineering College. Author proposes a complex of innovative reforms in the educational process to improve the education quality.
