Who are we?

A school. To be more precise, a school centre. We value experience that we have gained through our teaching, research, participation in different projects and cooperation with other schools. Our teachers took part in many training courses, some of them were good, some excellent and some lacking in content or logistics.

We have gathered our experience and designed six courses you can choose from. We are convinced that:

“Teachers know best what teachers need most.”


 

St. Stanislav’s Institution at a Glance

250+ staff members

We are a large educational institution and have been growing steadily in the past two decades. Currently, St. Stanislav’s Institution employs approximately 250 staff. Most of them are teachers, but there are also researchers, interns and trainees, administrative and support staff. Ready for anything.

1,500+ students

There are many students our teachers work with on a daily basis. More than 650 secondary school students and 450 primary school students make up the majority. If one adds kindergarten children, music school students and students who live in our student halls, there are more than 1,500 students at St. Stanislav’s Institution. 

100+ years of experience

St. Stanislav’s Institution is one of the oldest educational institutions in Slovenia. It was the first secondary school which used the Slovenian language as the only language of instruction and the first Slovenian matura (final examination) was held here in 1913. A lot of history and experience hand-in-hand with innovation.

7 international projects

In the last 6 years, we carried out 7 larger international projects with foreign partners. Each of the projects lasted for two or three years. Many of these projects were focused on the topics that are now part of our teacher courses. 

81 teachers

In the last 6 years, we sent a large number of teachers to teacher training courses abroad. We have had several larger training projects and have learned a lot. Now it is time to share our knowledge, skills and good practice. 

6 different schools

Our school centre is unique in Slovenia. It consists of a kindergarten, a primary school, a secondary school, a music school and two student halls for secondary school and university students. A typical school day is, therefore, very busy. 

Why visit us for a course?

We are proud of our vast experience with teacher training courses. For years, we have been organising courses on a smaller scale. With the Eramsus+ Programme, we have started sending many of our teachers to various teacher training courses. We realised that the best courses were those designed for teachers and preferably held by teachers or at least those in touch with them.

In 2019, we decided to take a next step and share our knowledge, skills, research and experience.
We looked at what we are good at and how we can share this with other teachers.

The positive feedback from our past participants show us that we are on a good path:

 

Interesting and reflected

The content was very interesting and the trainers encouraged us all the time to critically evaluate this new pedagogical approach. I’m sure this experience is going to push me towards other not explored ways.

Good mix of theory and practice

The seminar for physics teachers was very well organized, all sessions were very interesting, thoughtful, well prepared. There was a great connection between theory, practice and instructions how to use all of these in our classes. The teachers were always excellent and very well prepared for the sessions. I am amazed with their enthusiasm. I am sure that this knowledge will be very useful in my future work.

Inspiration for work

I left this course equipped with skills and inspired to implement multidisciplinary projects integrating these activities, which include a better connection to natural environment in order to stimulate the senses and make it possible for young people to be more active, committed and happier.

Intensive working sessions

Each of the courses consists of 6 intensive and interacitve working sessions. They are designed to combine theory with practice and require active participation. The courses will be led by our best teachers. Smaller gropus (up to 15 participants) will ensure rich interaction and a wide range of covered topics.  

Course personalisation

We have prepared a questionnaire to learn more about your profile, specific interests and needs in your teaching practice. Considering your profiles, we will adapt some parts of the programme. You will be also asked to choose 2 optional modules. Upon request, we can arrange one-to-one meetings with our teachers.

Networking

One of great things of taking part in teacher courses is establishing new contacts. You will be able to meet many teachers from different countries, expand your networks and horisons and also find new partners for your projects through various (social) activities planned for the participants of all six courses.

International exchange

To encourage networking and enrich your course experience, we hold a sharing best practice event or in other words a fair of good practice. In addition to two optional modules, this is another event in which the participants of all our courses and some of our teachers come together and exchange their good practice.

On-site accommodation

We know that getting around can be quite challenging when you are abroad. And if you work intensively, you do not need the extra work of taking care of the logistics. This is the reason why our courses are “all-inclusive” events. You can read more about it in a section below. What you need to know is: you are staying and eating with us.

Rich social programme

We want to make sure that your experience of staying with us is a pleasant one. Therefore, a rich social programme will be part of the programme. It includes ample opportunities for socialising, several educational sight-seeing tours, culinary experience etc. You can read about it in a section below.

Programme bonuses

We hope you will join us for one of the courses. We will do our best to make your stay pleasant, help you make connections and absorb new realisations and skills in such a manner that you will be able to translate and adapt them to your environment.
