Regarding the governmental efforts to promote and stimulate the youth’s artistic and creative capacities, the Ministry of Education has initiated a special alternative school, encouraging the development of usual skills, as well as of art and culture-related skills among children and youngsters, from elementary school to higher education. The programme lasts five consecutive days during the school year and it can carried out based on a schedule set by each education institution.
The four most relevant strategies in the field of education are: the Strategy on education and training in Romania for the period 2016-2020, the National Strategy for lifelong learning for the period 2015-2020, the National Strategy for tertiary education for the period 2015-2020 and the National Strategy on research, development and innovation 2014-2020.
The Romanian education sector is an essential part in the Government’s strategy to attain the Europe 2020 objectives. Most of the EU objectives focus on the improvement of the education sector due to its influence on the economic growth via employment, training for relevant skills, personal development. In order to achieve these objectives, there is a need for the Ministry of National Education and the Ministry of Culture and National Identity to cooperate as successfully as possible.
