It is an honor for us, that the European Union found our project worthy of support: the ‘Get more girls into STEM vocational training schools Or: How can vocational training schools encourage girls through the process of school-seeking’ alias Technogirl Project won a Small-scale partnership with Slovenia.

Our two organizations (Hungary and Slovenia) are committed to increase the number of girls in STEM-vocational schools, as they are extremely underrepresented in our educational system at that level.

As nowadays automatization helped professions a lot, there can now hardly be found differences between man-like or woman-like jobs.

Short summary of our project:

 

“Our goals:

  1. raise girls’ numbers in the two STEM VET schools taking part in our pilot from 2023/24
  2. raise girls’ numbers applying to VET schools in the 4 elementary schools taking part in our pilot from the end of 2022/23
  3. raise families’ numbers who believe in the successful end of a VET school study/practise.
  4. raise class teachers’ numbers having clear information about the role of women/girls in STEM vocational training
  5. raise awareness of STEM VET schools

 

Our tasks meanwhile

  1. Parents, students: widen their opinion about girls’ place in STEM VET professions”More girls from our cooperator elementary schools will choose STEM VET schools (than the year before)
  2. Market research
  3. Recruitment events
  4. Tutoring/career guidance
  5. Social media campaigns for raising awareness
