AMURT Romania News Paper (January to May 2012)


Published on

In January, we told our students that they are the pioneers in creating a new solution for a successful integration.

We modeled the training programs based on a simplified social and economic behaviour in today's world. Providing the students with realistic look at the job-business market they must live in and gives first-hand experience in creating and working with the social issues which will dominate their lives.

From this "micro-society" world, we are now moving to the real world. Between June to August, all students will have to attend certified vocational courses of their own choice as well are related to the job market. During this time we are preparing for the social enterprise establishment to start in September.
