Teacher Training in Montenegro

JA Montenegro, with the support of the Center for Vocational Education and the Institute of Education of Montenegro, successfully implemented the Student Company teacher training.

The training of 18 secondary school teachers in Montenegro was held from 27-28 May in Podgorica, within the VETpreneur project.

Student Company is an entrepreneurial education program that allows students to be involved in the development and management of their own companies at school, with real products and services, as well as to manage the money earned during their high school education. Therefore, the goal of the training is for teachers to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to implement the program and thus start student companies at school – a program that has been designated by the European Commission as the best model of entrepreneurial education in the world, and which is attended annually by several million high school students, and which is accredited in Montenegro by the Center for Vocational Education.

The training was prepared and successfully implemented by a pair of teachers who come from Serbia: Marija Urošević and Milan Nikolić. The training was attended by teachers of science and social subjects, who acquired new knowledge and skills in the field of preparing a business plan, starting student companies, preparing teams for the fair exhibition and other phases necessary for the further implementation of the program with students at school. In addition to the mentioned knowledge and skills, the teachers exchanged existing and gained new experiences useful for the implementation of the Student Company program from the beginning of the new school year, and became part of a network of teachers with whom they will cooperate and implement new joint initiatives in the future.
