YEREVAN. – Graduates of the Real School received job offers with a monthly salary 300-400 thousand drams, head of e-Hayq company Vahagn Poghosyan said during the ICT Leaders Meeting forum.
Real school is a high school level program that combines education and vocational training. Its goal is to provide its graduates with necessary knowledge and technical skills to pursue various opportunities in the high-tech innovative industry.
A pilot project of Real School is operating in four cities throughout Armenia. Some of the first graduates will join the army, while others have jobs already, Poghosyan said.
As compared to other educational initiatives, Real School project was not funded by the government.
“The government has not participated in the program and is not willing to do so. The minister of education, science, love and solidarity [minister of education, science, youth and sport affairs] asked for a presentation of the project and disappeared,” Poghosyan added.
