The system of secondary vocational education is an important component of the efforts to train mid-level specialists in Turkey – an incentive for the development of our country.
This was stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the ceremony of launching the project of 1000 secondary specialized educational institutions and 50 research centers on Monday in Ankara.
The President noted that within the framework of the project aimed at developing the vocational education system in Turkey, 1 billion lira was invested in the infrastructure of a number of educational institutions during the year through the state line.
The head of state said that graduates of Turkish lyceums and universities will be able to re-profile and study in special centers of any new specialty, which will have a positive impact on the labor market.
The President announced that students in the last grades of Turkish Special Education Centers working as apprentices will now receive a salary equal to not one third, but one half of the minimum wage.
Erdogan also stressed that graduates of all Turkish lyceums have the same status and rights from the point of view of the state.
