What could a priest, a waitress, a nurse, and a maths teacher have in common? It’s not short-term popularity, a healthy bank balance, or a pushy nature. It’s simply kindness.

In the Czech Republic, there are endless debates about what education should actually provide, what quality should be created, and what sort of graduate should be “machine-tooled.” Yes, machine-tooled is the right expression, because regardless of whether you start with knowledge versus soft skills, civic education, and the relationship between natural and social sciences, it always culminates in what the labour market needs, whether it be the Czech, local, or regional market.

We have big plans. Don't you want to miss something?

Yes I'm interested.
