Our students take part in vocational trainings in world leading companies. We have IT labs equipped with the latest hardware and software from leading companies. Students have possibilities to get prestigious international certificates which can pass in our exam centres. Our school is the one of fourth Microsoft ShowCase School in Poland where students can use new information technologies. For example, Office 365 is an important tool for creating, updating, sharing and exchanging the information, as our teaching staff can communicate with students via e-mails and SharePoint site. Moreover, community portals such as Facebook, Twitter or Yammer are tools widely used for having access to up-to-date and newest information and as a place for sharing learning ideas, as well as free software for education: Office Mix, Flash Card, Mathematics, Photo Story, Chemistry Add, Movie Maker, etc. – as tools for everyday work.

Foreign language learning plays a crucial role in our organisation. Three foreign languages – English, German and Russian - are taught in the school. Our institution has taken part in a numerous international projects for the students and the staff. Students of our school have various opportunities to take part in language contests organised both by our organisation as well as external institutions. It seems crucial to state that English is the most frequently chosen subject as far as “maturity diploma” is concerned.
Apart from those mentioned above, our organisation places great emphasis on ICT oriented teaching. Interactive boards, educational programmes, applications and websites are widely used both during lessons as well as to do homework and complete projects.
