An education project in Slovenia is giving the profession of headmaster a boost

The aim of a new ESF project in Slovenia is to promote innovative training approaches by creating a link between headmasters, their environment and other schools, and to give the profession of a school headmaster an attractive dimension. The ‘Lifelong learning for school headmasters’ project  will put a special focus on mentoring, professional and scientific meetings as well as the career progression of headmasters.

It will involve 3200 teaching staff participating in educational and training programmes. The €274 330 project is supported by the National School for Leadership in Education which is promoting lifelong learning for headmasters and other educational professionals.
