Vocational courses in Kaunas: providing professional knowledge and innovation Having good teaching facilities in Kaunas (the school’s workshops), ORT offered various courses for adults led by the vocational school’s teachers. Courses were held at the school and in other suitable premises, and made use of the school’s facilities. Besides a trade, Lithuanian and history were also taught. The participants paid a monthly fee, but ORT could reduce fees for poorer students, and in exceptional cases was able to offer an exemption. The heads and instructors of the course did not receive salaries; all profits went to the ORT vocational school. Those who passed the examinations successfully received standard certificates from the Specialised Education department.
