Main working field(s) of the Job-shadowing activity

The main field of activity in the vocational high school of transport “Vl. P. Minchev” is the training of students in specialities related to the transport industry. We provide training in specialities such as Road construction equipment, Auto transport equipment, Agricultural mechanization, Logistics of shipments and services. Our students are given the opportunity to acquire driving a motor vehicle in several categories. In addition, we hold our students and give them space to express themselves in all areas of interest them. It is a good practice for us for quality vocational education to go hand in hand with the arts, hobbies and interests of students.


Good practice or activities to share

As we mentioned, we from Minchev insist on quality, attractive and intriguing professional education. We develop different skills in our students by preparing them for national competitions in professions and beyond. In 2021, a school group of mechanics ranked 4th in a national competition for agricultural mechanization, and the folk dance group “Horce” became a semifinalist in the show Got Talent. This is an indicator of the development of various skills and the unlocking of wide potential in our students. In recent years, we have been trying to combine these useful skills of different nature, looking for direct links between hobbies and professions. Our innovation is conducting STEAM lessons – systems, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. With us, both in the online environment and in-person, colleagues can observe and take part in combined lessons of different nature, in which we skillfully combine vocational education and other subjects of interest to students. We have modern technologies, interactive classrooms, plant laboratory, STEM center, virtual reality room, workshops, dance hall. We believe that our innovation in combining professional subjects and arts will be of interest to colleagues.

Expectations for future collaborations

Expectations for working with the partner school are based on the exchange of experience in areas of interest. It is important for us not to stop updating and looking for innovations in quality vocational education. Any fresh idea is welcome and will be welcomed, refined, commented on and implemented. We expect to receive real feedback and communication. Advice, guidance and lasting future communication would be useful for us. We hope that our methodological approach to training will be an object of interest for future projects. For us, contact and communication with a partner school are especially important so that students can expand their perspectives and see new horizons. In 2021, we made professional mobility in Spain and it was a great opportunity for our students. They acquired new knowledge, skills and met new teachers, mentors and a learning and training process different from the one in Bulgaria. This brought them experiences that they could apply and implement in their lessons.


Expectations regarding the profile of staff to host

We expect to meet a motivated, interested and positive teacher to follow our work and innovations. We hope this will give him room to express ideas that will be useful both for him and for us.
