AimsOur school has been renovated and supplied with state of the art media. Also we have worked on enhancing the quality in regard to teaching, training of staff and pursuing excellence for our school organization (“Quality management in vocational schools”). Another key aspect for our school is using modern media in many aspects of work at school. Furthermore we intent to make our students more focused on international aspects of their work life. Besides, we would like to signal to our partners in the system of dual education, the individual companies, that in our region it would also be worthwhile to provide chances for students from the East European regions not far from here.In regard to our staff from the media and print department there would be a huge gain in knowledge as to the special media equipment at Stredni Skola.
