With sixty years of vocational education and training experience, two strong educational institutions, Edupoli and Point College have merged to form a new company called Careeria. From January 1, 2019, new careers will be provided by Careeria, who will also be a brand new training provider.

The new multidisciplinary education institution Careeria is preparing tomorrow's top experts for unique, future-oriented careers, many of which will be in multiple languages and create new roles in the international environment.
The new school, Careeria, wants to encourage, enable, guide and coach students in their career paths and create new horizons, strengthening lifelong learning and integrating it into working life.
