NMIE in the primary school “Nikola Karev” Sazdevo

Background

On October 29, 2014 the agreement for cooperation was officially signed between Nansen Dialogue Centre Skopje and the Municipality of Krusevo in order to include the Nansen Model for integrated education in the primary school Nikola Karev in Krusevo Municipality.

Upon the official approval from the municipal authorities and parents, the next step was the selection of teachers that will implement the integrated extracurricular activities. The Team for education, training and development within NDC Skopje in partnership with the school expert services made a selection of teachers that will be responsible for the implementation of the Annual programs for integrated extracurricular activities. The selected teachers attended the basic training cycle for integrated education within the NDC Skopje Training Centre.

The project Nansen model for integrated education in the Krusevo municipality was officially launched on XXX and it includes students, teachers and parents from the Macedonian and Albanian ethnic community.

About Municipality of Krusevo

The regular teaching process and the extracurricular activities

In the schools that apply the NMIE the regular teaching process is carried out completely according to the National Curriculum, i.e. according to the annual programs drafted by the Bureau for development of education of R. of Macedonia whereas the annual programs for integrated extracurricular activities are prepared by the Nansen Dialogue Centre Skopje.  The Annual programs for integrated extracurricular activities are closely correlated with the National curriculum.
