During a Business Week initiated by Trakai District municipality, representatives of companies that have created workplaces in the district, developed businesses, fostered a beautiful environment and contributed to the improvement of the social environment were awarded. This year, Baltisches Haus made it into the list of winners, awarded for its investments in youth entrepreneurial and professional skills training.
“Close collaboration with the community of the trade school Sodžiaus meistrai, lasting for almost ten years, has enabled us to contribute to youth education and expand the choice of professional pathways. We believe that more opportunities are opening for young people as they choose a profession that is close to their heart – a profession that motivates them to move forward and achieve even more,” said Audrius Masionis, CEO of Baltisches Haus.
The Sodžiaus meistrai trade school opened in 2003 in Rūdiškės, Trakai District, in collaboration with the vocational training association Les Compagnons du Devoir et de Tour de France embracing the oldest of European traditions. It is unique among vocational institutions as it focuses on the application of apprenticeship.
Currently, young people can opt for professions of carpenter, furniture maker, roofer, cook, confectioner and landscaper at Sodžiaus meistrai.
