At the presentation February 6 he introduced three new fields geared towards the professions of the future 1. environmental science, 2. architecture, design and sustainable development and 3. management with the focus on tourism. In concern of existing fields, the Minister of Education put special focus on social sciences and health sciences which prepares the non-clinical health professions. The new reform also includes reducing the number of national tests, and diploma of graduation is also adapted to the new age. This will be introduced for the general secondary school students that graduate in 2019. Source: Ministère de l’Éducation nationale de l’Enfance et de la Jeunesse
