94 High School “Dimitar Strashimirov”, Sofia, Bulgaria – Project coordinator
94 SU “D. Strashimirov ” is a secondary school located in the city of Sofia, Slatina district, Hristo Botev district. In addition to the general education classes in the school, there is also admission in three specialties. The specialty for high school is “Manufacture of textile clothing”, “Logistics of goods and services” and „Entrepreneurship profile“. 100 percent of the students are with Roma origin, with low educational achievements, frequently either dropping out from school or have a lack of job preparation skills in order to have access to the labour market. With this project we would like to foster the job preparation skills of our marginalized students to enhance their employment opportunities upon completion of the school. This will be achieved by additional career guidance and job preparation activities, which will be
structured in relevant practical guidance activities including preparation of CV and cover letter, job market search, preparation for interview, rehearsing interview, how to present strengths regardless weaknesses, how to answer to the difficult questions to the human resource manager and how to ensure work sustainability upon recruitment.
