Jaguar Land Rover has chosen the school due to the way that it prepares its students and also because of the composition and focus of vocational fields. The carmaker expressed interest in professions including milling and welding machine programmers, equipment metal workers and mechanic-electricians. “If the investor requests, the school will recruit students in the mechanic/mechatronic and machine mechanic fields of study. A tool-making vocational course will also be added to the curriculum,” said Prekopová on January 11, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The Polytechnic Secondary Vocational School on Novozámocká Street is also a centre of vocational education in the field of CNC technology. Over €1.66 million has been allocated to the centre by the Nitra region in the 2016 budget.

As other carmakers in Slovakia cooperate with secondary technical schools in order to prepare future employees, the Nitra region can see possible cooperation between Jaguar Land Rover and the Secondary Technical School of Mechanical Engineering on Fraňo Kráľ Street in Nitra. The school is building a centre of vocational education and preparing for the robotic automation of cybernetic systems in production and for electronic and mechanical engineering projects.

A total of 802 students are currently being educated in technical fields with possible application in the automotive industry at secondary vocational schools in Nitra. According to Prekopová, 447 students have registered to study the aforementioned fields in the following year.
