IMPROVED INFRASTRUCTURE FOR VET STUDENTS AND TRAINEES
School infrastructure plays a role when it comes to student and teacher motivation. Good infrastructure makes school attractive and motivates students to get active in the school environment, improving the attendance, interest and performance of students in learning.

New Smart Home Lab in vocational “Gjergj Canco” school
Earlier this year, “Skills for Jobs” partnered up with industry-leading companies DigiStrom and Smart Home Albania to simulate a Smart Home environment in vocational “Gjergj Canco” school.
The lab features Alexa, Hue, Sonos and Siemens Home Connect systems integrated live in eight complete “instruction boards” with digital electricity. It will assist students of the electric and electrotechnics directions in gaining a better comprehension in practice of theoretical concepts. Twelve teachers serving in these directions were trained and certified beforehand in order to better guide students through the “Smart Home” module.
The Smart Home lab was inaugurated during the schools’ Open Day in May, in the presence of many important figures from the private sector, private foundations, public agencies, NGOs, universities, etc.
