Selection of secondary school
You can ask for assistance in choosing the secondary school from teachers, expert services or the Croatian Employment Service. The National Information System for Application and Enrolment in Secondary Schools can also help you in choosing the secondary schoolPicking a secondary school is not an easy choice – this can determine your immediate future and impact your professional development. This is why it is important to search for information on different types of programmes, their requirements and enrolment conditions, and make your choice in accordance with your expectations, wishes and interests.
If you are not sure, your parents can help you make a list of professions you are considering, and eliminate those that are not of your interest, and then search for information about possible secondary schools in your residence area or further away (most schools have websites so it is not difficult to find the list of secondary schools).
You must also take into account the possibilities of enrolling in a desired school. If it is still hard to make a choice, you can go to a professional counselling session which serves the purpose of helping pupils find out about their own affinities, skills and capabilities.
Some schools organise professional orientation sessions in their own premises for pupils of the final year, but if the school you are attending does not have this possibility, you can contact the Croatian Employment Service where you can get necessary information and advice. In choosing a secondary school, it would maybe be useful to talk to one of the students of a school you are interested in because first-hand experiences and impressions could make this difficult decision easier.
The National Information System for Application and Enrolment in Secondary Schools can also help you in choosing the secondary school. You can search for education programmes according to the criteria you select, and then continuously track your results for those programmes.
