Project Description

The project serves the purpose to build the capacity of ETTA for the development of an improved in‐service teacher training system for educators, teachers, expert associates and school managers in the Republic of Croatia, which will be based on the new ETTA teacher training strategy 2014 ‐ 2020. The design of a modern system of in‐service teacher training that encourages the professional development of teaching and non‐teaching staff in general education is a highly important element in the improvement of the quality of general education as a whole, from which non‐teaching staff in schools, the teachers, their students and the whole society will benefit.

The implementation of this 1,200,000 euro project started in May 2012 and will last until April 2014. It is implemented by a consortium including WUS Austria, CIEP, led by SPAN Consultants from the Netherlands with the Education and Teacher Training Agency as the main project partner.


The major expected project results are:

  • Assessment of the training needs of Pre‐primary, primary and secondary school teachers;
  • Development of the in‐service teacher training strategy 2014‐2020 of the Education and Teacher Training Agency;
  • Designing an improved and quality‐based in‐service teacher training system on the basis of the strategy 2014‐2020 and ready for implementation.
