The Ministry of National Education continues to increase the production capacity within the scope of revolving fund, which makes a significant contribution to increasing the practical skills of students in vocational education. In 2020, the income obtained from production in vocational high schools was 503 million 197 thousand 847 liras. In 2021, the Ministry of National Education increased its revenue by 131% compared to the previous year, to 1 billion 162 million 574 thousand liras.
In this process, vocational high school students can increase their practical skills on the one hand, and on the other hand, they can receive wages as much as the minimum wage to the extent of their contribution to production. In this context, the increase in income was reflected positively on the wages received by the students. In 2021, the amount paid to students from the revolving fund revenues increased by 2020% compared to 66 and reached 51 million TL.
Making an assessment on the subject, Minister of National Education Mahmut Özer said: “Our priority in our transformation in vocational education is to strengthen the education-production-employment cycle. One of the steps we took in this context was to increase the production capacity of vocational high schools within the scope of revolving funds. We have reached 2021 billion 2020 million 131 thousand 1 liras, increasing the revenue generated in 162 by 574% compared to 527. Thus, vocational high schools broke a historical record. In 2021, the amount paid to our students from the revolving fund revenues increased by 2020% compared to 66 and reached 51 million TL. With this increase, we aim to increase the employability of our students when they graduate by increasing their capacity to learn by doing, and to be paid as much as the minimum wage while continuing their education to the extent of their contribution to production.”
