Cohesive and creative – these are just some of the features of the Training Centre for Intercultural Education at the Nansen Dialogue Centre Skopje (NDC), established in 2012.
The Centre has trained over 1,000 teachers to hold instructions with included intercultural component. Now every teacher, no matter where they are from, can apply to attend this training for intercultural education and obtain an internationally recognized certificate.
Theoretical and practical training in the Centre provides personal and professional development of teaching staff.
The NDC Training Centre is the first such resource centre in the country and the region. Through dedicated, professional and systematic work, it develops the intercultural perspective of the education system in North Macedonia. The Centre is in constant collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science, the Coordination Body of the National Strategy “One Society for All and Interculturalism” and the Council for Integrated Education Northern Ireland.
The trainings are held by domestic and international trainers with extensive experience in the field of integrated and intercultural education. The fact that 60 percent of the training is theoretical and 40 percent is practical suggests the quality of acquired skills.
Brief statistics on the NDC Training Centre: 350 trainings, 12 instructors, 40 groups of participants, 15 conferences in a period of eight years of existence
Upon successful completion of the training, each teacher receives an internationally recognized certificate that helps teachers in their professional development.
