ACCOMPANYING SCHOOLS

Since 2015, we have been accompanying various schools throughout Czech Republic. We specialize in harmonizing the atmosphere of the school, resolving conflicts and hidden misunderstandings. We are able to help with setting up processes (e.g. dividing different responsibilities), supporting communication between parents and the school and the smooth integration of ideas and procedures from different innovative pedagogical approaches. We support building an active community among children and guiding adults / teachers. We bring concrete suggestions and inspiration on how to move further the taught subjects or topics.

What is our approach?

Systematic mentoring or supervision is, in our experience, more effective than a single visit. Therefore, we can visit you often throughout the year to see your experience on implementing steps that had been discussed earlier. Building an innovative school is a process that sometimes stands still for some time. At other times, it moves forward rapidly and it’s time to reflect on what’s going on.

In innovative schools, we follow especially the joy of learning, but also experiencing a sense of interpersonal closeness and solidarity. We will help you support the school parents so they take on an active role in school life and even find their own potential for school development. We explore situations that are challenging to handle at your school. Every problem has its solution, any failure can be viewed as an opportunity, every mistake leads to new insights and knowledge.

Do you focus on the vision of the school? Do you need personal advice on financial and legal issues of establishing and running a school? Each of our mentors have their own approach to accompanying schools. If you hesitate whom to contact from the Institute, send us an email doprovazeni-skol@inovativnivzdelavani.cz and we will help you. See more information about a possible program >> .
