"First-rate equipment, constant modernising and possibly the best schooling leads to the success of your children."
The vocational school was founded in 1949 as the vocational glass school of the glass factory Inwald in Dubi, later called national Company - Container and Pressed Glass. In 1964, the vocational school was merged with another vocational school of the National Company - Flat Glass and the new Vocational School of Sklo Union, Glass Company in Teplice was founded. Until 1988 the school was located in the former Labour House in Teplice - Trnovany. The vocational school was directed and governed by the state company Sklo Union at first, later by Sklotas, then again by Sklo Union and after that by Glavunion - Teplice. On the 1st July 1991 the Glavunion secondary Vocational School of the Glass Industry, a joint stock company, was established as a private school. In October 1995 the Secondary Technical School was established as a part of the vocational school. On the 1st of January 1996 the school was given a new name, The Secondary Technical School and Secondary Vocational School of the Glass Industry, Glaverbel Czech, joint stock company. Within the last ten years there have been 120 - 170 graduates per year. Since its beginning, the school has prepared 7,800 workers in total. The greatest development has been carried out since 1988 when the school was removed to the former primary school in Teplice - Retenice, in Roosevelt Square. In recent years, school attendance is about 300 students per year.
Nowadays the school has been fitted with modern equipment and facilites - four modern computer labs, three fitted labs for administration, a few modern labs and workshops (for electronics, low voltage electrical engineering, engineering, IT, pneumatics), language labs, a fitness centre, etc.
Since the 1st of September 2007 the school was given the name Secondary Technical School AGC a.s. (AGC means Asahi Glass Company and this firm is the largest producer of flat glass in the world).
The school´s international cooperation has continuously developed since about 1992. At first, there were activities developed with German educational centres InterDACT Freiberg and Brand Erbisdorf, then with Saxonia Halsbrücke and KAS Köningsbrück.
