Lviv has a vibrant tourist market due to its numerable historic buildings and features within the city. Especially the craftsman trade of painter and plasterer seems suited to Lviv. Trainees in the Ukraine exclusively go to a state professional school, unlike Germany where apprentices work within both, companies and professional schools.
From 2007 to 2011 the Horst Rogusch Foundation, in cooperation with the Eberhard-Schoeck Foundation (www.eberhard-schoeck-stiftung.de), supported the 'Further Professional Art Lyceum Lviv'. Firstly this meant financial support, helping the school to employ German teachers, but there were also free donations of high quality painting tools to the School.
At the end of the training there was a tailor-made seminar held for pupils of the graduating classes with the intention to start working self-employed.
