Vocational schools

Rules and recommendations

Currently, schools have gone into holiday mode. Thus, regular testing is no longer taking place and students no longer have to prove themselves.

The rules for the operation of the school for the coming school year 2021/2022 will be specified in the coming weeks on the basis of epidemiological developments.

It is possible to attend in-person practical teaching and training for SŠ students, if it takes place.

Students in the Practical School one-year and Practical School two-year study program may also attend on a full-time basis.

Individual and group tutorials for up to 20 students are also permitted without limitation. These are primarily for final year students and students who are at risk of academic failure.

Final exams, graduation exams, graduation exams and internationally recognised exams are also permitted. If these examinations are held for up to 20 students, there are no restrictions. In the case of a larger number of students, one of the following conditions must be met:

  • a negative PCR test, not older than 7 days,
  • a negative POC antigen test not older than 72 hours,
  • laboratory confirmation of experiencing covid-19 disease no older than 180 days,
  • 14 days after the second dose of the two-dose vaccine or 14 days after the single-dose vaccine.

Please remember to wear mouth and nose protection when visiting school facilities. For more information, see this page.

This is due to the current epidemiological situation and the high risk of infection. A large number of pupils meet at school for a relatively long period of time, they are also in contact with teachers and at home with their parents. This is associated with the risk of transmission of infection to many contacts.
