The school is well equipped for both theoretical and practical instruction and has access to up-to-date facilities, including tools, machinery and other equipment needed for training. Periods of on-the-job training (work placement) are included in all programs.
The amount of studies required for the completion of qualifications is defined in terms of credit units. Basic qualifications comprise vocational studies (90 credits) including on-the-job training (20 credits) that are common to the whole field of study, elective orientation studies, common core studies (20) and optional studies (10 credits). Optional studies may be completed at any educational institution.
The curriculum aims to provide a broad-ranging vocational education which combines good professional skills and a solid general education. The purpose is that young people can rely on their competence to cope with the wide range of tasks in their field, to find a job in the increasingly competitive labour market and to qualify for further studies. A broad vocational education helps people to adapt flexibility to changing circumstances and to upgrade their skills according to changing job tasks. Education promotes the individual growth and development of young people. As well as teaching the essential skills of learning, education also promotes independent initiative and entrepreneurship.
Those who have taken vocational certificates of diplomas have a number of options for further studies, e.g. at a polytechnic or at universities. The education also includes study guidance, competence tests and a final project (2 credits).
The school participates in international interaction as well. It takes an active and keen interest in creating further co-operation.
