“There is certain accumulation of qualifications, more than the labour market needs and can handle, while at the same time there is a deficit of other qualifications. There are so many people with specialties such as business economy, law, certain humanitarian sciences, experts in economy, who are so many that in fact the education system creates unemployed people,” said Dr Tomcho Tomov, head of the National Centre for Assessment of Competence with the Bulgarian Industrial Chamber, speaking in an interview with FOCUS News Agency.
“The labour market requires professions connected with technical skills – engineering, mathematics, technology.
People with mathematical training are very important, as well as those with engineering-technical skills and applied sciences, such as chemistry, biology.
Unfortunately, for yet another year the universities are decreasing the accession of new students,” Tomov commented further.
