Our high-school is located in Bucharest. We have been functioning since 1966. We have a number of 950 students this year, and we offer day classes, evening classes, professional school classes and reduced frequency classes. Our team is made of 50 teachers, 30 non-teaching personnel and 10 auxiliary personnel Due to our location at the periphery of Bucharest, we receive students from the small cities and villages close by and offer them to stay in a modern boarding school. Our school has been recently renovated and we offer modern classrooms, 2 ICT laboratories, a new outdoor artificial football pitch and a cafeteria.
Our main aims are:
- To offer specialized preparation in the special field studied in our high-school related to cars: car mechanic, food and service and IT for both teenage students and adults.
- To offer certified papers in order to prove their knowledge and an opportunity to practice what they learn during the school years in car services found by our school
- To offer a good quality education for our students and after graduation a place of work Due to the large number of students nowadays that choose to work instead of coming to school and consequently abandon school, our institution focuses on avoiding this situation.
We try to offer both theoretical and practical courses for our students inorder to guarantee them good knowledge for a good job in the car field. Whether they specialize in car mechanic, car service or IT we try to offer them after graduation a job, so as to avoid skipping courses and giving up school. We have participated in numerous national and international projects and partnerships trying all the time to increase the quality of our education and to offer our students new ways of discovering knowledge. Our teachers are continuously preoccupied with improving by means of participating in the LLP training sessions.
Our school is continuously trying to offer our students more than a formal education by means of developing their European cultural awareness and values by involving them in numerous educational projects. Since 2011 “Iuliu Maniu” Technical College is certified to be a European school by The Ministry of Youth and Education and we are proud to have been the first school that has represented our country for the first time in the international project “Young Ideas For Europe” that involved working together with a partner school in Spain in order to find alternative means of saving energy. In 2015 our school has participated in the international project “8 GOALS: WE ACT”, dedicated to the millennium development goals and how teenagers can get involve and currently we are part of the national educational project “Porneste Motorul schimbarii in comunitatea ta”, a project focusing on nonformal education methods like Forum theatre, Photo-voice and the Living Library. Our school has just finished a three year Erasmus+ strategic partnership Project last year and since September we are again parteners in another 2 year Erasmus+ KA229 project. At the same time we started in March 2018 a long-term partnership for practice for our students with a similar highschool in France “Lycee Professionnel Jean Lurcat” in the city of Orleans.
