International affairs

International cooperation with similar vocational schools abroad has been going on for many years. We have implemented teachers’ and students’ exchange programs with the schools from the Netherlands, Spain, Ireland and Finland. The teachers’ exchange normally takes one week while the students stay abroad for three weeks performing their practical training.

We would like to intensify our international cooperation for all our programs in the future. Our aim is to find more partner schools to get acquainted with the education systems in different countries, and to enable our students to acquire international experiences. We are also prepared to accept students and teachers from foreign countries to provide them possibilities for exchanging experiences and getting information about our education system.

In 2005 our school successfully carried out the international CIDESCO examination, and was awarded the “CIDESCO school” accreditation. By getting the CIDESCO diploma our students have better prospects of employment at home and abroad.
