“Opportunities abound when a young person chooses a suitable profession”


This is the objective and credo of the vocational training school “Sodžiaus meistrai”. Established in 2003, the school was founded in collaboration with the prestigious vocational training association “Les Compagnons du Devoir et du Tour de France” (France) embracing the oldest European traditions of education being based on the apprenticeship method. In “Sodžiaus meistrai” school, young people may currently choose from the professions of carpenter, furniture-maker, roofer, landscaper or cook.

Eight years of close social partnership enabled the “Baltisches Haus” administration and the majority of the staff to take a closer look at the (self-) education process and contribute to the assessment of student achievement. We are pleased that a new class of professional craftsmen will graduate from the school this year. Currently, third-year carpenter specialty students are preparing intensely for the upcoming qualification exams. They are performing practical assignments in the school workshops, namely the production of wood layout models. We are extremely proud of student Paulius’s tenacious willingness to learn the carpenter’s craft and his attitude towards work. Paulius’s layout model represents a constructed frame wall with a roof structure. All roofer specialty students will use this layout model when they perform in practice by covering the roof with slates.


We would like to wish our future craftsmen success in their exams.
