About the Training Centre

The NDC Skopje Training Centre is dedicated to provide practical and theoretical training on the Nansen model for integrated education (NMIE) and to ensure professional development of teachers, professors, pedagogues, psychologists, education inspectors and school managers that will help them successfully establish and implement integrated education activities within their schools.

Using the five-year experience from the work on development and establishing integrated primary and secondary education in Macedonia, the Team of Nansen Dialogue Center Skopje in partnership with relevant experts and institutions has created a package of basic and advanced level trainings that will enable schools and education sector employees reach their true potential in the field of integrated education.

To ensure the best programs and trainings for professional development, the Training Centre has engaged both local and international expert trainers with extensive experience in the field of teacher training and integrated education.

The structure of the trainings that will be held in this Training Centre is 60% theory and 40% practical work. The theoretical part is realized within the Training Centre facilities whereas the practical part will be held in the Nansen model schools that are additionally equipped for this purpose. The total duration of the training cycles is two years.

The project Nansen model for integrated education including the Training Centre is financially supported from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Kingdom Norway.

About the Nansen model for integrated education

The Nansen model for integrated education (NMIE) is a contemporary education model, which promotes and supports the integration processes in schools with mixed ethnic composition of students in multiethnic municipalities. The model was developed and practically applied in 2007 after a 2 years’ work on promotion and facilitation of dialogue and reconciliation projects in post-conflict and segregated municipalities in Macedonia. Since then, the model is successfully implemented in few selected primary and secondary schools throughout different municipalities in Macedonia and has demonstrated excellent results.

NMIE is recognized and accepted both locally and internationally, and in 2011 the Nansen Dialogue Center Skopje was awarded by the OSCE – HCNM with the Max van der Stoel prize for achieving outstanding results in promoting integrated education and improving co-operation between different ethnic communities.
