1. Introduction

Education is a socio-cultural phenomenon which is of priority both for an individual and for preservation and development of the society. In this context, modernization of the Institute of Vocational Education, within which training of workers and specialists of different levels and profiles is implemented, serves as one of the main objectives of the educational policy of the state. This is why research activity of the Institute of Pedagogy and Psychology of the Russian Academy of Education is aimed at analysing the status and prospects of development of fundamental science in the field of vocational education on the subject of ongoing research and is connected with current issues, which characterize possible ways of developing and improving professional training of future workers and specialists of secondary and higher qualification. When solving these problems, we rely on studies of real processes occurring in the system of vocational education. A cross-cutting idea of the Institute research is the idea of integration of education, science and industry.

The Institute conducts research on the subject, forming a part of five projects ("Theoretical and methodological grounds and innovative models of vocational education and retraining of specialists in a changing labour market", "Theory and practice of specialists training under conditions of scientific and educational clusters in different fields," "Multicultural grounds and didactic support of vocational education content", "Project and target-oriented mechanisms of implementing the federal state educational standards of primary and secondary vocational education", "Philosophical and methodological, medico-psychological, social and pedagogical grounds for creating and developing informational and educational space") of the plan of fundamental and applied research of the RAE. At the same time the cross-cutting idea of the Institute research is devoted to integration of education, science and industry. We will briefly reveal the main results that we obtained in 2013.

Studies have shown that while creating self-organizing systems of education, it is necessary to use multivariate models based on new concepts. They are based on: the principle of proliferation, consisting in growth of innovations in science and education on the basis of multiplication of competing theories; the principle of balancing needs of individuals, social groups and a state, providing best interests of presented subjects of education; the principle of subsidiarity, based on the fact that people can show themselves in two planes at a time: as an autonomous person and as a medium of social relations; the principle of adequacy, establishing interconnectivity of political, economic and cultural environment with functional-structural content of education; the principle of complexity (the law of necessary variety) provides formation of different personality types for needs of reproduction of culture and civilization through educational tools, based on philosophical theory of understanding - hermeneutics; the principle of self-similarity, which forms fractal development of management and self-management of educational systems; the situational principle, which determines a development vector of an educational system in the information society, taking into account a variety of contexts and events during a certain period. …
