Secondary vocational education is part of the national education system and is aimed to forming and development of skills, competencies and professional relationships among high school graduates. The main problem faced currently vocational education in the Republic of Moldova is a mismatch between the skills and competence of students from vocational schools, accordingly, the needs and requirements of the labour market.

Caritas Moldova, understanding the relevance of the problem and the need to solve them set goals to implement social and educational programs in Moldova aimed to modernize vocational schools.

Goal: improvement of education facilities and quality of education at the Vocational school  Period of implementation: 2012-2013

The students, together with the School Administration, were involved at the renovation works financed within the project. Thus, in September, the students began the new school year in good conditions. Practical lessons aroused interest and enthusiasm and will help to train new technical specialists.
