Minister Nikolla further said that the presentation of these students with such professionals adds educational value to the learning process, as we offer them some real and tangible examples for measuring success and life practices. “Therefore, we strongly believe in our reforms, undertaken in the area of education, because orienting school curriculum towards competency will be the key for developing new capacities for the next generation of young people”.
