We are the largest educational non-governmental organisation in Poland. We cooperate with 40 thousand teachers and headteachers from 10 thousand schools in the whole country. We bring to school new teaching methods and topics that are important for civic society.
We inspire changes that help schools teach more effectively. Thanks to them young people engage in their education and better cope with the challenges of the modern world.
– educational programs for teachers, headteachers and schools (each of them takes 3 to 12 months),
– workshops that develop the competencies of teaching personnel.
We also offer conferences, webinars and didactic materials which could be used on a daily basis.
We have been operating for 28 years. We have been repeatedly awarded for our activities and achievements, including the Ministry of National Education’s badge of honour 'For Merits to Education’ and the title 'Pro Publico Bono Institution’.
We run an accredited national teacher training institution and a publishing house.
