Low interest in vocational training, despite jobs on offer

On April 17, the Sme daily reports that despite a continuing shortage of skilled factory workers in the Slovak labour market, secondary schools providing vocational training have reported a drop in the number of applicants, the SITA newswire wrote. Pupils in the final grades of primary school were required to send applications to secondary schools by the beginning of April. Most of them have applied to attend secondary grammar schools or do four-year training courses in hotel and catering services. Unemployment in Slovakia is currently the highest in the EU. Unfilled vacancies are mostly in the car and electrical engineering industries. SITA
