BEST TRAINING, BEST JOBS!
The main activity of Haapsalu Vocational Education Centre is to arrange initial vocational training. In addition to that it also offers services based on different areas: catering-, accommodation- and conference service.
Our schoolhouse is renovated in 2005 and is situated in outskirts of Haapsalu, which is a small summer resort in West Estonia. Besides the schoolhouse we have got two cosy students’ homes, tutorial building lab and modern wood workshop.
Most of the specialities are based on the basic education (cook, hospitality service, finishing work in construction, mason, joiner, computers and networks). In 3-4 years students get the occupational-secondary education from our school. Seven specialities (nature tourism management, textile work, accounting, restorer of wood and stone buildings, furniture restorer, catering, computers and networks) are for adult learners and the studies take place periodically - one week in a month during the studying period of two years - which is the best for the working people. The adult training courses in our further education department take place all through the year.
In autumn 2011 we started with 800 students and we offer work for 100 employees.
The School has 13 approved curriculums including the simplified curriculum for students with special needs.
The students of Haapsalu Vocational Education Centre have successfully taken part in different professional contests of Estonian Republic. Cooks, waiters, waitresses and accountants, masons and joiners have won several prices from different contests.
In 2006 we won the second price at AEHT Annual Conference Waiter’s Contest which took place in Ireland and in 2008 the third place in Room-Service Contest in AEHT Kuressaare Conference. Our students of servicing have represented Estonia at Euroskills 2010 and the students of catering at Worldskills 2011.
We are the member of AEHT - European Association of Hotel and Tourism Schools (http://www.aeht.eu/) and EHRL – Estonian Hotel and Restaurant Association (http:/www2.ehrl.ee). We also participate in all of the professional unions of Estonia related to the areas which are taught at our school.
