Prax - škola života
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2016
The primary aim of the project is to take into consideration all the requirements of the contemporary job market, and based on that to improve the vocational and linguistic training of our students, and to strengthen their professional competence and specific linguistic competence - skills of effective communication, and the usefulness and uniqueness for the modern European job market.
Additionally, we would also like to integrate our physically disadvantaged student into the working group, and to enable him to grow professionally, and increase the social consciousness of the whole group, and finally to ensure a personal growth for all the members of the group with the integrated student.
The experience with the employability of our students suggests us, that youth has increasing problems with finding suitable jobs. The activities of our institution in cooperation with real firms, the experience form the subject training company, and the experience acquired from international fairs of training firms indicate the need for new, progressive and innovative methods of education based on the needs of Slovak and European job market. These methods emphasise the practical understanding, next to textbooks, they implement real situations from real life.
Our vision is to recreate and improve a student's profile with professional and linguistic knowledge within five years, which follows the needs of the modern European job market. The basic tool for this change is the new and updated school educational program, which takes into consideration these requirements. We would like to concentrate on the multicultural differences within Europe by learning about, and trying to understand and accept it.
