In the context of the penetration of digital technologies into various areas of socioeconomic activity, it is necessary to orient the education system towards a qualitative update of the goals and objectives of the educational process, the modernization of educational technologies, to the benefit of developing creative and social capital for future specialists. The authors investigate the program of providing the Russian labor market with demanding specialists with the necessary relevant knowledge, skills and capabilities. Furthermore the conditions for systematic improvement of the quality and possibility of continuing education of all categories of citizens due to the development of an open and accessible electronic educational environment are determined. Modern technologies, networking, scientific potential and experience of educational organizations, the best practices of online learning, existing online platforms and business projects become tools of such transformation. To achieve the goal of the study we chose the path of systemic interaction between universities, organizations of additional professional education and employers. It’s necessary to identify main tasks facing each part in the process of forming the dynamics of improving the quality of educational processes. The objectives of the university will be the development of common competencies to ensure adaptation to the labor market in the context of society and the economy digitalization. The survey has shown that such qualities are formed by the structure of the educational process of the university and its corporate culture. The task of additional professional education organizations is to provide a target substantive professional orientation in order to prepare and develop practical skills. With modern qualified personnel, companies will be able to provide the specified pace of technological progress and competitive advantages, and to solve complex modernization tasks. Thus, the result that must be achieved in the process of educational activity is the training of a highly professional specialist, in demand on the labor market, with creative and social capital, able to approach professional activities from the perspective of a researcher and initiator, aimed at self-development and self-realization.
