The British Council in Croatia is delivering the project of support to the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education in the implementation of the curriculum reform in Croatia. The project has been carried out in two phases and is funded by the European Union via the Structural Reform Support Service (SRSS) of the European Commission.
Teachers – mentors
Over the last 12 months, UK and international experts have been working with Croatian teachers – mentors on the development of training resources with special focus on learning outcomes, formative assessment, problem solving, learning to learn and coaching to school teams. The resources include videos of good classroom practice filmed in Croatian schools. Croatian trainers and coaches have been prepared and supported to work with teachers in both pilot and all schools introducing curriculum reform in the autumn of 2019 through both online and face-to-face training.
Principals - mentors
Fourteen Croatian principals - mentors are also taking part in a leadership training programme with a focus on leadership practices that support curriculum reform in Croatia. As part of the programme, the principals are also cascading their knowledge to principals in all schools implementing curriculum reform and developing a concept paper on school leadership. The programme also included a study visit to Scotland in March 2019 which gave Croatian principals an opportunity to learn about school leadership practices in Scotland and how Scottish principals support curriculum changes in their schools.
