Nikola Karev is a state school and a Regional vocational education and training centre offering formal education with duration of three and four years and education for adult learners, as well as non-formal education and informal learning in the vocational professions it covers. The Centre offers validation of non-formal education and informational learning; it carries out research, development and innovation activities; cooperation with the business community and business relations and networking, international cooperation and marketing. With that, the activity of the centre expands both in scope and geographically, and thus includes a larger number of users of different ages. There are 6 vocational sections comprising the curriculum, namely: mechanical, IT, electronics and energetics, traffic, construction, wood processing and textile and leather, These are all divided into 16 educational qualifications. The mechanical, wood processing and textile and leather vocations incorporate the dual vocational education concept with an increased number of lessons in work-based learning. The teaching process includes theoretical classes and practice in local businesses as work-based learning activities. The centre provides education to students and beneficiaries from the area of Strumica and the South-East region of the country. The student is the center of our commitments and efforts. Nikola Karev is a centre of all ethnicities and an inclusive institution not only for students with fewer opportunities, but also for students with special educational needs (SEN) who live within the municipality and beyond. Being a VET centre, it incorporates not only technical skills, but also creativity skills considering that a great number of technical activities require creativity at all levels. Fields of particular interest are STEM, digital tools in VET, enriching creativity skills through various forms of their sustainability, environmental sustainability in relation to VET and similar.
