Dual Education

The dual education system is a new form of education in Bulgaria, which gives high school students from the eleventh and twelfth grades of vocational high schools a chance to expand their studies in a real work environment. The education system has been introduced and functions successfully in countries such as Germany, Switzerland, Austria and China. This system represents parallel training in two places – in the vocational school and in a company for a period of two years. Students of eleventh grade attend school three days a week, and the remaining two they have the opportunity to work in the company. In twelfth grade, the time of practical education in the real work enviroment is increased to three days a week. During the practical training in the company, the students are actively involved in the work process with the help of a mentor who helps them, guides them and supervises their work.

 Kittner joined the dual training program in 2016 and accepted its first students from PGMT “Prof. Tsvetan Lazarov” – Plovdiv. From 2021, the company also partners with ” Vocational School of Electrical Engineering and Electronics” – Plovdiv.

The advantages of this type of training are:

  • Acquisition of contemporary business knowledge and skills;
  • Opportunities for career development in the company after graduation.
