The field of Nursing Services is a vital part of the life of community and society, and it suits both girls and boys. There will never be lack of jobs in this field.

Job Prospects

  • Interesting jobs available on the labor market;
  • You can find jobs in various institutions of social services (senior homes, facilities for people with disabilities, centres of daytime services, or in other facilities providing services to the needy);
  • You can also work in mobile social services, especially in help and support in homes of challenged clients or families with children;
  • Graduates can also work as homecare workers, personal assistants or helpers at homes of challenged clients;
  • They can find job in companies specializing in cleaning and care services;
  • Or work as helpers in kitchens, in workshops dealing with clothes adjustment and repairs, or in laundry and press shops.

The graduates may also continue in their studies in our Extended Study Program, and complete it after 2 years with the Maturita-Leave Exam. During this period, they will learn how to run an independent business and be their own boss.

Nursing and Care Services, or rather people who deliver them, are indispensable partners and helpers to persons who have limited autonomy. They help such challenged people to live full and dignified life. Based on my own experience and my longtime cooperation with the School I am convinced that this specialization prepares students well for this demanding profession. During their practice in senior homes, the students will learn some other important characteristics that help them in their work – such as empathy, personal approach, and the skill of listening. Come to work with us and become new “good angels”!
