Ms Sebahate Reqica, one of these trained teachers, states:
‘Personally I enjoy teaching career education because it is an attractive subject for students; they also like tests about skills and personal qualities and characteristics. This subject helps them to make a decision about choosing a profession in time. The role of the career education teacher is very important because during the visits to different companies or institutions the students become aware which professions are demanded on the labour market and which profession would be suitable for them. The implementation of the pilot was not easy, but the enthusiasm of us ,career education teachers, and our ositive energy to help students helped to overcome many problems’.
Aulona Sylejmani, one of students interviewed, states:
‘Career education subject helped me to decide which career to choose between three that I already had in mind. I always liked agriculture but also I had thoughts of another two professions: forestry and economics. Our career teacher took us to visit a local agricultural school and it helped me to definitely decide on my career. I want to enroll in this school even though I know my friends will joke with me because I have chosen agriculture, as I am an excellent student and vocational schools have a lower prestige’.
Another student Hekuran Hoxha states:
I have always liked computers since I was a child but I was not sure which qualifications I would need and what my employment prospects would be. My career teacher explained to us about vocational schools and the labour market so I got my answers. I have decided to become an IT specialist and I will enroll in technical school. The teacher explained to me that IT is in high demand in the labour market in Kosovo’.
The Girls' Day opened up wide future prospects to a generation of qualified young women.
Ms Vlera Tahiri student who participated on Girl’s day states: ’I have never thought about the possibility of working in a profession that is rather untypical for women, but now I would like to be a taxi driver. I believe that these kinds of professions are interesting and woman that work in these professions prove that they can achieve everything that a man could as well’.
