Dante – Adult education institution

Dante - Adult education institution, CROATIA, Rijeka

We believe that our success in the past curricular and extra-curricular work, active participation in European projects and general contribution to improvement of the quality of educational offer and the life in the local community is relevant for the application. All this is certified by objective and measurable indicators, such as 24 years of successful work, participating in professional training throughout the EU. The target group of the learners is university students and young employees. We have a very big request for individual classes connected with business language and the specific vocational language. We are able to organize language courses for medical staff and we consider that this project could help us to improve our knowledges in the field of vocational language education.
