NMIE in the primary school “Slavco Stojmenski” Vinica


On July 9, 2013 the agreement for cooperation was officially signed between Nansen Dialogue Centre Skopje and the Municipality of Vinica in order to include the Nansen Model for integrated education in the primary school Slavcho Stojmenski in Vinica 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 Vinica municipality was officially launched on November 15, 2013 and it includes students, teachers and parents from the Macedonian and Turkish ethnic community.

About Municipality of Vinica

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.

The regular teaching process is carried out in the respective native language of the students from different ethnic communities, whereas the integrated extracurricular activities are carried out bilingually using the paraphrasing approach for ethically mixed groups.

The integrated extracurricular activities and the NMIE itself have many specifics, but also new innovations for the Macedonian educational system, which represents a very important step towards the promotion of the modern educational tendencies.

  • Correlation of extracurricular content with National curriculum,
  • Bilingual approach with paraphrasing,
  • Team and tandem cooperation between the teachers,
  • Using the game method during the activities
