The challenge of vocational education is that the school-leavers’ meet the standards of present day labour market, important are both the personal qualities and professional skills.The project „Discover the world volume 2“ will contribute to the accomplishment of the strategic objective in school’s development plan of 2016-2020:education provided by our school is of high quality, accessible, meets the requirements of labour market and the organization of schoolwork is efficient, flexible and sustainable and meets the students’ needs.

Students come from the countryside and 40% of them are from underprivileged group. Five weeks of independent life in a strange environment will be a useful experience for a young person.

We have created a memorandum of mutual understanding that is valid until 2016 between the organizations involved. In addition we have an agreement between four parties (sending and host school, participant and company where the participant is going to work). The good quality of the outcome is ensured by the list of activities carried out before, during and after the mobility, the technical description them and outcome-based modules created by the teachers.
