Starting January, Centre for Education Policy, in cooperation with Pestalozzi Children's Foundation, has launched implementation of the second phase of the project “Together in transition - Support to Children from Vulnerable Groups in Transition to Secondary Education” which was implemented from 2017 to 2019 in 10 primary schools across Serbia.
This project is based on experiences of 10 primary schools and the evaluation results of the first phase, which showcased that the project achieved significant results, and that there is a need to involve secondary schools and other local actors in order to ensure successful transition to secondary education and its completion.
The project includes implementation of three components - strengthening capacities of 10 primary schools for quality teaching and learning of students from vulnerable groups in transition to secondary education, strengthening capacities of 10 secondary schools for students’ dropout prevention, as well as strengthening capacities of local actors to understand, identify and support students from vulnerable groups in overcoming challenges they face in their educational paths.
Project is being implemented in schools from Becej, Bor, Brestovac, Djurdjevo, Zitkovac, Knjazevac, Leskovac, Nis, Niska Banja, Novi Sad, Surdulica, and Cuprija.
