The Zur Yam Technical School
The Zur Yam School is located in the Israeli Navy training base at the Haifa Port and is operated in cooperation with the Israeli Navy and the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
The school was established in 2008 when the Navy recognized there is a growing demand for technological personnel.
The Navy turned to Stef Wertheimer, the industrialist known for his generosity and educational view, in order to join forces and open a technical school in the Navy Training Base.
Both sides found that they shared the same values and started working together. There are currently 160 students in the school, in grades 9-12 studying in three main vocational tracks: certified electrician, maintenance of industrial machines and CNC , meeting the technological needs of the Navy: marine electricity and marine machinery.
After completing their studies, the students join the labor market with a diploma in one of these professions.
These three professions are in high demand and therefore the students have a strong chance of doing well, providing they pass all necessary tests and receive a diploma in one of these fields.
The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor funds, supervises and leads the curriculum at the school, adapting it to the needs of the current industrial world.
