„Alexandru Domşa” Technological High School is not only a provider of education but also one of the most important providers of vocational training in Alba County. The training offer is diverse, comprising 10 accredited / authorized qualifications, for high schoolers: telecommunications technician, ICT technician, mechatronics technician, mechanic maintenance and repair technician, electrical and electronics technician, and for vocation education: car mechanic, electromechanical machinery and industrial installations, modelling, operator in numerical control machines.

In 2013, the German Vocational School Alba was founded as a new structure of our organization, a public-private partnership including the Alba County Council, the Alba County School Inspectorate, „Alexandru Domşa” Technological High School together with six companies in the area. The German School operates in a dual system, with economic partners supporting the funding and practical training of a large number of students.
Our school has as its main objective the professional and personal training of the students so that they develop skills and competences required by the current world of work and would ease their access to the labour market.
We have reliable partners in the local businesses, with whom we have concluded long-term partnership contracts. They provide quality training in a real work environment, on real equipment, for a significant number of students during the weeks dedicated to practical training for students studying in the dual system. Their involvement in the life of our organization is important, ranging from material support of the students, contribution to the development of our classes and training laboratories and the tailoring of the learning material. The rest of the students, however, rely very much upon the existing equipment in the school lab.

There is an important gap between the high level of technological development of the economic operators (working with complex mechatronic systems in their production lines) and the outdated technologies available in our school. The lack of modern specific and updated equipment and software necessary to support the practical activities is rightly felt as a weaker point by students and teachers and subject for constant improvement for the school’s management team. However, in the day-to-day practice, but also during the implementation of European projects, the teaching staff has proven the ability to adapt to the demands of direct and indirect beneficiaries of the education process (students, economic partners etc), promoting various educational practices, updated and in line with the 21st century level of expectation. Our teachers have put into practice creatively, though with modest means, innovative methods and techniques in order to achieve more exciting and attractive lessons for our students. Understanding our students’ need for training with view to their integration onto the increasingly competitive labour market is ensured by the close ties established with local companies; these links include cooperation between companies and teachers for the development of a local curriculum.
