Teachers from the oldest institution of higher technical education in Donbass come to the enterprise with lectures once a week. Coke plant employees have been studying right at their workplaces. Furthermore, they successfully passed their first on-job end-of-semester exams.
"I graduated from the vocational high school in 2009 but did not have any chance to enter a higher educational institution. And here is such a chance. So, I decided to study," said Anna Ivanova, inspector of Quality Control Department. "It was difficult at the start but I quickly got used to it recollecting those years when I was a student. To pass entrance exams successfully, I had to do my best. I would like to thank our management for this opportunity to attain higher education free of charge! I will do my best to justify this confidence."
