As a representatuive from ORM and member of LESC Skopje, Mr.Darko Petrovski, noted that far too often the requirements of secondary schools to maintain practical instruction in some of the companies are greater than the capabilities of companies, but companies like all other countries should have a sense of social responsibility that they have for the development of the economy. Also noted that educational institutions should show more proactive and show flexibility in creating curricula with the demands of companies.
It concluded that it is necessary to better promote the possibility of mentors companies to train students in the practical teaching, and training they need to go and teachers to know what practical lessons will follow students and parents to learn about the benefits that later will have their child if you regularly go on practical training in companies.
