Bayındır Vocational Training School

About Us

The decision to establish Bayındır Vocational Training School was taken on 7th of April 1997 by the General Council of Higher Education and the first academic year began in 1997. For the 2000/2001 academic year the school was relocated to a 42000 m2 site (1420 m2 covered space) which was donated by the Municipality of Bayındır to Ege University.

A protocol was signed in 2007 between Ege University and local philanthropist Sadık SUSAMCIOĞLU enabling him to donate an additional training facility to the school premises. The facility was completed in 2009, increasing the closed spaces of the school to 2849 m2.

The structure of Bayındır Vocational Training School was shaped by considering both the opportunities that the region could offer to education and training and also by the employment requirements of local enterprises. The evaluation process led to five formal education programmes under the roof of Bayındır Vocational Training School. 

Bayındır Vocational Training School facilitates subjects both theoretical and applicable within its own premises. Its location acts as a natural research field. Vocational excursions are taken to relevant enterprises and fairs allowing the students to observe contemporary production processes. As contributing to the regional development is within the school’s strategical aim, landscape projects are carried out for local institutions and enterprises, allowing students to gain applicable skills on relevant subjects.

The fundamental aim of Bayındır Vocational Training School is raising students who are adaptable to changing circumstances, aware of necessary technical knowledge, capable of team work and productive in their fields.

The mission of Bayındır Vocational Training School is raising modern and innovative technicians capable of exhibiting analytical thinking, demonstrating contemporary and comprehensive approaches in relation to technological advances, increasing the region and country’s development in landscape, agriculture, fashion and textile industries.
