KOSOVO: Centre of Competence for healthcare in Ferizaj
A modern school for quality education: Launching the promotion campaign for the Ferizaj centre
The construction of the Centre of Competence (CoC) in Ferizaj is in its final phase. Opening of this school, which will offer education and training in seven healthcare professions (optician, audiometrist, orthodist and orthopaedics, dental technician, pharmaceutical production, nutrition and food safety, home family care & geriatrics), is scheduled for September 2013. All curricula and equipment will respond to modern labour market needs and respect EU regulations regarding healthcare provision.
A promotion campaign has been launched in April, not only to attract students and inform parents, but also to facilitate cooperation with businesses and other private partners.
On 29 April 2013, a press conference for local and national media was held inside the school building in presence of the Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of the Embassy of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to Kosovo, Mr Pierre Weber, the deputy Minister of Education of Kosovo, Mr Nehat Mustafa, and the head of the Vocational Education and Training department of the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology (MEST), Ms Valbona Fetiu-Mjeku, as well as the Mayor of Ferizaj, Mr Agim Aliu. The event was covered by local and national TV and articles appeared in the following days in major newspapers such as Koha Ditore and Kosova Sot..
Additionally, the Ferizaj Centre was featured during one hour on the Sunday morning TV show "Magazina e se dieles" on RTK. Guests were Mr Bashkim Hyseni, director of the Centre, Mr Agim Berisha, director of Ferizaj Municipality Education Department, and Ms Valbona Fetiu-Mjeku, answering questions of a live audience of 9th grade students about topics such as qualifications, application criteria, and courses to be offered.
