Croatia: Split and Sisak schools with fine traditions look to fill gaps in labor market
Craft Technical School Split and Industrial-Craft School Sisak started in their current form in 1992, and to this day they have profiled themselves among some of the best vocational schools in Croatia with their programs and additional activities.
The school in Split has a very long tradition - it has its roots in 1907, when the first Vocational School of Crafts was founded - and today it educates students in four areas of work: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, woodworking and other services. The school currently numbers about 640 students in the regular program and an additional 50 in the adult education program. The GIVE Program room will educate 70 students from the regular program and a dozen participants in the adult education program, and training for about 70 plumbers and heating and air conditioning installers will be conducted by five teachers. The Grohe cabinet in Split was opened on October 27, 2021.
The school in Sisak specializes in the field of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering in industry and crafts, and also implements an adult education program in the field of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and metallurgy in craft and industrial occupations. The GIVE Program room was opened on November 8, 2021, and in it four teachers will educate about 60 future plumbers and heating and air conditioning installers. The school has a total of about 200 students, and like their colleagues in Split, is constantly working to promote the need of the labor market for professional staff from vocational and craft schools.
