These regulations give a unique chance to those who have no higher education, but have accumulated great experience as part of their work, for example, cooks, guides, joiners, jewelers, information technicians, wine-makers, metal craftsmen, and felt craftsmen. Such people can apply to vocational education institutions, where their previous informal education will be recognized and rewarded. These people are professionals with professional diplomas and they are able to respond challenges and requests of today’s labor market and get well paid jobs.
