The British Council in Croatia is delivering a project to support the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education in the implementation of curriculum reform in Croatia. The project is funded by the European Union through the Structural Reform Support Programme (SRSP) and implemented by the British Council in cooperation with the European Commission.
Teacher – mentors
UK and international experts have been working with Croatian teacher – mentors on the development of training resources with a 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 available online through the CARNET Meduza portal. Croatian mentors have been prepared and supported to work with teachers in initially experimental schools and then all schools implementing the new curriculum through both online and face-to-face training.
Principal - mentors
A group of Croatian principal - mentors have taken 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 have been cascading their knowledge to principals in all schools implementing curriculum reform and have developed 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 own schools.
