Hradec Kralové regional administration is planning to create free more centers for professional technical education that would be located at secondary schools in Nová Paka, Hradec Kralové and Trutnov. Last year, three such centers were opened around the region for engineering, automotive industry and transport, forestry and construction. The three new professional schools will cost the region around 70 million crowns, funds for which will come primarily from EU subsidies. The Hradec Kralové region has had problems filling spots in high schools and professional schools, with only half of the available 12 000 places having been taken in the 2010-11 school year.
