1. Elazig Mesleki ve Teknik Anadolu Lisesi (Elazig EMTAL) TURKEY

In 1941 was het de bedoeling dat onze school onderwijs zou krijgen volgens “”Male After day Art School””, en werd gebouwd in 1945. Tegenwoordig draagt de school de naam: Elazig Vocational and Technical Anatolian High School . Elk van de afdelingen past verschillende programma’s toe, de onderwijsgebieden zijn:


-Technology of Wooden Field.
-Computer Multimedia Technology Field
-Electric and Electronics technology Field
-Metal Technology Field.
-Motorized Vehicle Technology Filed
-Machine Technology Field
We hebben 126 medewerkers en 1040 studenten, ieder jaar studeren er 160 studenten af. De studenten zijn tussen de 13 en 19 jaar oud. Na hun afstuderen hebben krijgen studenten de kans om als universiteitsstudent te blijven studeren. Zo’n 9 jaar geleden is er een modulair trainingssysteem geïmplementeerd in onze school. Verder biedt onze school ook nachtelijk beroepsonderwijs voor volwassenen en jongeren.
Dit jaar was onze school een van de beste beroepsscholen in Turkije en werden we door het Turkse Ministerie van Nationaal Onderwijs geïdentificeerd als “”school voor speciale projecten””. ‘S Avonds en in het weekend produceren onze hout- en metaaltechnische afdelingen producten zoals bureaus, tafels en kasten die zijn besteld door onder andere het Turkse ministerie van Nationaal Onderwijs. Onze school werkt sinds 2006 mee aan verschillende Europese projecten.
Een van de belangrijkste factoren die ten grondslag ligt aan het leren van een ambacht is het probleem van werkloosheid. Anderzijds lijkt het overschot aan ongeschoolde arbeidskrachten in Turkije toe te nemen en hebben bedrijven tegelijkertijd te kampen met een overvloed aan hoogwaardig personeel. Voor het probleem dat hieruit voortvloeit van vraag en aanbod op de arbeidsmarkt willen wij bijdragen aan een oplossing. Daarom zijn we vorig jaar gestart met het “Specialized Vocational Training Centres (UMEM) Skill 10 Project”. Gespecialiseerde beroepsopleidingscentra (UMEM) Skill 10-project werden opgezet tussen verschillende partners genaamd: Turkse Unie van Kamers en Goederenbeurzen, Ministerie van Arbeid en Sociale Zekerheid, Ministerie van Onderwijs en TOBB Economics and Technology University (TOBB-ETU). Onze school deed mee aan de pilot voor dit project. In deze context worden beroepsopleidingen georganiseerd volgens de behoeften van maatschappelijke organisaties verbonden aan onze school.
