The High School of Communications and Informatics has a long tradition in Tábor. In 1952, the Joint Apprenticeship School was established, which was located in the building of the District Communications Administration in Tomkova Street and prepared students and adult workers for work in the postal service. Its transformation created the Professional Vocational School of Communications in 1962 with a focus on teaching the telecommunications field of communication mechanics.
From its inception until 1991, the school was managed by the South Bohemian Directorate of Communications, which always made sure that teaching took place at a high level and in dignified premises. That is why the South Bohemian Directorate of Communications was one of the main investors in the construction of the apprenticeship complex on Maredova vrch in Tábor at the end of the 1970s. The school moved to a nice environment in the countryside on the outskirts of the city during the school year 1979/80. Theoretical teaching, vocational training and a youth home are concentrated in one place. In the same year, the vocational school was included in the network of secondary schools and was renamed the Secondary Vocational School of Communications in Tábor.
At the beginning of the 1980s, the SOU spojů, in cooperation with the managers of the Long-distance Cable Administration in Tábor, developed a project of one of the first graduation fields – mechanics of transmission equipment. This field has been taught at our school since the 1980/81 school year, and most of its graduates now hold positions of responsibility at telecommunications companies. Later, the field was incorporated into the system of fields of electronics mechanics and the focus on telecommunications equipment was added. The liaison organizations continuously provided telephone exchanges and other equipment for professional training, because teaching at operational workplaces is not possible in these fields. Further education of pedagogical staff, which guarantees a high level of graduates of our school, was also consistently taken care of.
In addition to telecommunications technology and electronics, we also began to deal with computer technology in the mid-1980s. Already in the school year 1985/86, all pupils in the fields of study went through six-month computer courses, and over time, computer technology took up more and more space in teaching. Computers have become a hobby for many of our school staff, and after the market opened in 1990, we quickly switched to IBM PCs. We arrange the modernization of computers and the construction of a computer network ourselves during professional training of students.
In 1991, we gained legal personality and became an independent school established by the Ministry of Economy. This enabled us to expand the offer of graduation fields with a focus on computer technology and consumer electronics. We have introduced new fields since 1991 and the good employment of high school graduates from these specializations has convinced us that we have chosen the right path. We do not belong to the schools that today offer dozens of diverse fields. We decided to continue our traditional focus on electrical engineering and to focus more on monitoring today’s rapid development of telecommunications and computer technology and transferring new knowledge into teaching. The new curriculum in the field of electronics mechanics approved by the Ministry of Education since 1996 is partly the work of teachers from our school.
In 1999, our school was merged with the Secondary Integrated Technical School from Sezimovo Ústí. Due to the opening of the study field of digital telecommunications technology, the school changed its name to the Secondary Vocational School and Secondary Vocational School of Communications in 2000 and later to the Secondary School of Communications and Informatics.
