The training programs of LINK Educational Alliance’s educational institutions generate great interest. This is why each year, LINK group allocates free training programs to be realized online, via the distance learning platform, to persons with disabilities.
 
Free training amounting to around €40,000 will be provided for programs at three educational institutions: ITAcademy (i.e. LINK Academy in Romania), BusinessAcademy and InternetAcademy.
 
 
We are planning to distribute the training programs in three countries where LINK group’s educational institutions operate: Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Romania. The total number of free international training programs is 20, eight of which will be allocated in Serbia, and six in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Romania each.
 
The aim is to provide persons with disabilities with a chance to acquire practical knowledge in business, the Internet and IT, thus enhancing their position on the labor market and helping them to become the first choice of employers for many professions in modern business.
