We cannot really just learn to do anything, we have to do something in order to trully learn!
We are a rather large educational institution and we have been growing steadily in the past two decades. Currently we have more than 250 employees. Most of them are pedagogical workers, but we also have researchers, interns and treinees, administrative and support staff. Ready for anything.
There are A LOT of people we meet and work with day-to-day. More than 650 students in secondary and 450 pupils in primary school make up the majority. With the other units adding a hundred or two more kids, there are more than 1.500 of them that we see daily.
St. Stanislav’s is actually one of the oldest educational institutions in Slovenia. It was the first secondary school to use Slovenian language as the only language of instruction. And we held the fist Slovenian matura in 1913. A lot of history and experience hand-in-hand with innovation.
In the last 5 years we have been included in 7 larger international projects with foreign partners that have lasted for two or three years and included several activites; a lot of the projects were focused on topics that we now offer as courses for teachers.
In the past 5 years we have also sent a large number of our teachers to attend seminars and structured courses abroad. We have had several larger training projects and we have learned a lot. And we want to share 🙂
There is really a large variety and diversity to our everyday life. Kids ages from 1 to their 20’s can be seen roaming our halls. Among us we have: a kindergarten, a primary school, a secondary school, a music school and two dormitories for high-school and university students.
Each of the 5 course modules offers 6 really intensive and interacitve work sessions. They combine some theory and put much emphasis on practice. We will try to engage you, as much as possible. All of the courses will be lead by our best teachers. And the dynamics of smaller gropus (10-15 attendants) will ensure that the work will be really active and rather intensive.
From the moment you contact us we will try to find out more about you and your specific interests and needs in your pedagogical practice. We will taylor make some segments of the programme based on the participants and additionally, you will be able to choose 3 optional segments out of a variety of those on offer.
One of the best benefits from attending teacher training seminars are the contacts with your peers and colleagues that you establish. As we have 5 courses running simultaneously you will benefit from a wider array of attending profesionals. You will be able to expand your networks and horisons through various (social) activities planned for the entire group of 50+ attendants from around Europe.
Supporting networking and enriching the attendants chosen module we are organising also an additional fair of good practices. So, you will be able to choose 3 shorter work segemnets as already stated but we think that another even shorter dynamic would be benefitial to all the attendants. So in the course of the seminar there will also be an international fair. You will obviously be asked to actively participate.
We know that getting around can be quite a challange and a hassle when you are abroad. And if you wish to work really intesivelly, you probably don’t need the extra work of bothering about the logistics. That is why our seminar is an “all-inclusive” event. You will be able to read more about it in the next section. What you need to know now is – we have you covered: you are staying and eating with us.
We really want to make sure that your experience of staying with us is a pleasant one. That is why we are preparing an additional enrichment programme for all the attendants of the programme. This programme will include ample opportunities for social ancounters, several sight-seeings and culinary experiences and you can read all about it in the sections bellow.
You have the general idea of our seminars. Intensive work in 6 sessions of your chosen module, 3 personalisation options, several networking opportunities. Logistically everything is taken care of. We have some more information bellow, but we really do want to encourage you to contact us regarding anything. Specifically your stay at this point. We know that travelling might be stressful and challanging for some, so please let us know if you might have any special requirements. Among other things we can help you organise your transfer, perhaps arrange for an airport pick-up, extend your stay with us … Anything, we can help you with, please:Contact us
We hope you can agree that 1.300€ for a 7-day seminar including room and full board as well as all the course materials and enrichment programme is in fact a bargain. But we need to let you know about a great opportunity. We were able to attend all the seminars in the past years thanks to the Erasmus+ programme that awarded us generous grants that helped us attend the courses and further improve our schools. And obviously, we would suggest the same to you. You are eligable to gain a grant of around 2.000€ to attend our seminar. Yes – quite a lot more than what we are charging you. In any case – if you are interested in this possibility, please read more about it.More info
Please do not hesitate to use the contact form to either to express your interest, ask us anything regarding our seminars, ask us anything regarding Erasmus+, or give us a feedback on what you think (about the world in general or maybe the topics of the seminars, our programmes our page or anything more linked to us.)
We will try to get back at you as soon as possible but keep in mind that there is a person at the other end of the line, Maria, to be exact. She is fast but doesn't live in the intrernet, so give her a day :) ...
