The P-TECH program is a multifaceted initiative in the field of education. Students complete the level 4 of the Polish Qualifications Framework (Matura) together with education at level 5 of the Polish Qualifications Framework and attain workplace learning skills during apprenticeships. The aim of the P-TECH school model is to provide young people with support in the development their scientific, technical and professional skills in response to the challenges facing the modern labor market: skills gaps, automation and the emergence of new jobs. The P-TECH program was launched in Poland in August 2019 by three partner companies (Fujitsu, IBM, Samsung) and three secondary schools (ZS No. 1 n Wronki, ZSTiO No. 2 in Katowice, Silesian Technical Research School in Katowice).
