The article is devoted to the problem of development of social partnership in the field of education of the Arctic communities of foreign countries. The goal is to study the practice of implementing of educational initiatives at the local level in terms of their impact on the socio-economic development of the Arctic regional communities. The inclusion of local community internal resources in such projects allows accelerating the development of intellectual and educational potential, the human capital of a territory, not by attracting skilled labor from the outside, but by increasing and qualitative changes in their own labor resources. The implementation of projects in the field of education makes it possible to prepare our own qualified personnel, reduce unemployment, including among youth, and, in general, to level the development of negative trends in socio-economic development. The development of processes of social integration of federal and local authorities with business structures and educational institutions, provided that the potential of the local community is intensified, is an incentive for the self-development of socio-economic territorial systems, including such complex ones as the Arctic. Such experience is especially valuable in the conditions of the formation of a social partnership in Russia and may well be used in the implementation of the self-development of the arctic local communities of our country.

Keywords: education, self-development, resource, social partnership, factor, region, local community, Arctic.
