The ‘Noor Meister 2011’ (Young Master) skills competition took place on 1 and 2 December 2011 as part of the information seminar ‘Teeviit’ (Road Sign).
Young professionals competed in 12 fields: electronics, mechatronics, IT technology, landscape gardening and design, cleaning service, ladies’/men’s hairdressing, tiling, painting and decorating, graphical design, electrical installation, fashion design and floristry.
The objective of the two-day competition is to offer young VET students an opportunity to compare their knowledge and skills with other students studying in the same field, and to find the best Estonian to compete in the international arena. The young masters give a live demonstration of the skills that can be acquired in VET schools all over Estonia, thereby also promoting the opportunities to study in VET. While the competitions are taking place, performers entertain the audience with music, beauty care, fashion created by VET students, etc.
The third annual Young Master competition was organised by the Foundation for Lifelong Learning Development (Innove) together with the Ministry of Education and Research. The competition was financed by the European Structural Funds.
