HERE WE ARE
“Branko Radičević” is a secondary vocational school located in Ruma, a town in Vojvodina, a multicultural and multilingual region of Serbia. Our employees are highly motivated for cooperation and they wish to integrate new experience into their work. We educate economic technicians, legal technicians, technicians of clothes making, waiters, cooks and hairdressers. We wish to cooperate with colleagues from both region and Europe. We welcome all types of cooperation contributing to further educational improvement of our students and teachers.
Since Serbia is included in Erasmus+ projects and receives students and teachers within this program, we invite our colleagues as well as other interested parties connected with education to cooperate with us. We can provide job shadowing for teachers (including all educational profiles), as well as professional practice for students in different companies and institutions our school cooperates with. There is also a list of courses we provide in our school in connection to our school’s educational profiles. We also successfully organize interesting and diverse cultural visits. We arrange accommodation and food service according to your wishes and needs. We are interested in all topics regarding current strategic goals in education.
Classes in our school are held in modern and equipped classrooms, specialized classrooms and workshops. The school currently has over 500 students. Among them, there are a lot of children of Roma nationality and children with special needs. Also there are around 80 employees. 60 of them are teachers who work with and take care of the students. The school has enough space for students, including classrooms, specialized classrooms, workshops, a kitchen, a restaurant and a hair salon.
According to the curriculum, our students have practical classes that last for five days, several times per year. They visit different government institutions on the local level, courthouses, Social service center etc. as well as lawyer offices and various private companies and attractive hotels and restaurants. Helping employees with their work, our students can apply their theoretical knowledge and gain valuable experience.
When talking about extracurricular activities, we would like to mention Tolerance club – a discussion group which has been involved in the breaking of prejudices and stereotypes. Moreover, each year within Tolerance club, our most hardworking students travel to Switzerland together with their teachers for two weeks. Upon return, as a consequence of the good relations that were established in Switzerland, there is an exchange of students with the country from our discussion group.
We made the intercultural exchange with the Gymnasium from Slobodskoy, Kirov Oblast in Russia. The exchange was organized in the form of job shadowing. There was also a return visit and we were hosts on the same principle.
We have been present in Erasmus+ program from the very beginning. Out teachers are fully trained and experienced in project management within this program. We have become a model school in our surroundings thanks to examples of good practice and good coordination. We are the first school in Serbia which received students on internship in cooperation with NGO ”Stil mladih”. Our school cooperated in training. In this way we gained valuable experience in one part of Erasmus+ program which is currently becoming more and more popular in Serbia. (2019-1-PT01-KA102-060533). Our town is attractive for cooperation because we have qualified educators, great hosting and overall service in this type of program.
