We have extensive experience in training specialists in the fields of social sciences, biomedicine and technology, who after graduation successfully find work not only in Lithuania, but also abroad. Three chains are actively involved in this process: students, employers and higher education institution. College is proud to have an extremely wide circle of reliable partners.
According to Sigitas Gailiūnas, President of the Panevėžys Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Crafts – Panevėžio kolegija/State Higher Education Institution constantly and intensively cooperates with business: organizes discussions, forums, conferences. Panevėžio kolegija/State Higher Education Institution invests a lot in improving the quality of studies and updating the infrastructure, which guarantees the training of highly qualified specialists. Employers are satisfied with the practical training of a College graduate, but each company trains a young employee with specific knowledge and skills even during internships. “I boldly say, that the uniqueness of Panevėžio kolegija/State Higher Education Institution is its strong relations with business and strong practices” – says Sigitas Gailiūnas.
