A two-year project aiming to help technical and vocational schools to introduce curricular reform has started being implemented in April 2009. The project was prepared by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in cooperation with the National Institute of Technical and Vocational Education (NUOV).
On 1 September 2009, half of VET schools should start instruction (in compliance with the School Act) according to their own school educational programmes. Present practice shows that initial training for coordinators and teachers who participate in the development of school educational programmes is not sufficient. Teachers and coordinators need to be able to resolve problems they deal with in developing school educational programmes. Some of them are also interested in the expert supervision of developed programmes.
The project will also support various forms of cooperation between schools and social partners by gathering examples of good practice and posting them online. The most interesting of these will be published in a separate collection.
