PROJECT “SCHOOL MEETS BUSINESS”

PROJECT “SCHOOL MEETS BUSINESS”

After the implementation of Module 1 for school coordinators, that took place online via the Zoom platform, Volunteers Centre Skopje organized and implemented Module 2 of the project “School meets business”.

At the beginning of July, the trainings for school coordinators were successfully implemented and these were meant for the professors of the Macedonian vocational schools countrywide. With these trainings, we included 3 groups of participants, with a total duration of 3 days per group. The trainings were implemented with the physical presence of the participants in the pleasant atmosphere of the hotel Continental in Skopje.

These trainings are promoting the school coordinators as a link between the vocational school and the company where the students perform their practical work. It is a part of the project “School meets business” of the Austrian Federal Ministry of education, science and research, in collaboration with the Macedonian Ministry of education and science and the Center for vocational education and Training. This regional project is in the coordination of the OEAD agency for education and internationalism from Austria and it includes Kosovo and Albania as well.

Volunteers Centre Skopje as a partner organization through the years is responsible for the local logistical support and implementation of the project in Macedonia.

The project “School meets business”, after the short delay due to the pandemic and the restrictions continues successfully to be implemented. We are working on the preparations for the Module 3 that is planned in August, for the same 3 groups of participants. It will be finalized with the Final Event and the promotion of all the groups that successfully took part in it so far.
