About our school
The Nándor Handler Vocational / Technical School as a member of the Vocational Centre of Sopron, is a dominant institution in the Sopron region. Besides being one of Sopron's most populous educational institutions, our school also has a rich historical heritage: in 2014 it celebrated the 130th anniversary of its formation. The school's name choice also refers to its rich history: Nándor Handler was a remarkable 19th-century architect, who - besides many excellent buildings (churches and palaces) - designed the old wing of our school building, too. As a vocational / technical secondary school, our institute offers full-time training in several fields of the building trade, timber industry, light industry, informatics, beauty industry and arts. We conduct training in the following trades:
Vocational training (a 3-year training program without a school-leaving exam):
- internal decorator
- builder and tiler
Technical trainings (a 4+1 year training program with a school-leaving exam at the end of the 4th year):
- ornamental painter
- graphic designer
- IT administrator
- timber industry technician
From this school year on - in cooperation with the Vocational Centre of Sopron - we are also launching different courses in adult education.
Our institution provides ideal circumstances for vocational / technical training, since - besides our main building for theoretical education - we have a well-equipped, modern apprentice shop as well, where manual training can take place. The main aim of our school is - following its traditions - to promote the economy of Sopron and its region and supply the industrial sector with well-qualified professionals. We are obliged to pursue this goal not only by our past achievement but our current successes as well: our school has recently won a national Award for the Quality of Education and our students regularly achieve excellent results on national vocational competitions.
