Specialists from Austria  demonstrate quality of vocational training at EuroSkills 2016 in Gothenburg

Moments to remember! 35 specialized workers from Austria unfolded their impressive skills within various professions in Gothenburg. Once again Austrian companies proved the exceptional high quality of their vocational training programs. The results are remarkable: European championship team award for Austrian, 5 gold, 5 silver and 4 bronze medals as well as 9 “Certificates of Excellence”. The absolute highlight was the extraordinary success of Lisa Janisch. Within the “Painting and Decoration” competition her scores made her even “Best of country” and “Best of Europe”. Lisa Janisch can therefore be considered Europe’s best specialized worker! Our young Styrian heroin is the best testimonial for the upcoming EuroSkills 2020 in Graz (Austria), says the happy president of the Styrian Economic Chamber, Josef Herk, proudly.

The Austrian delegation together with Austrian Commercial Counsellor in Sweden, Albrecht Zimburg, and numerous supporters were thrilled about the results and kept encouraging the participants by singing and cheering.
