The Adult Education Institution Dante was founded in 1991 and it offers a variety of regional and international adult education workshops, courses, and programmes for foreign language learning, teacher training, transferable skills training, entrepreneurship and management training, as well as language and vocational courses for migrants. We have about 300 adult attendees of foreign language learning courses per year and 12 employees. Our Institution is well established and our educational programmes are designed to respond to the needs of modern society, contributing to the sustainable development of adult education at the regional, national and European level. In 2011, the Institution was awarded by the Croatian Agency for Mobility and European Projects and the European Commission for raising the level of competence of learning foreign languages.
Programs Tailored to Everyone
Providing top-quality classes is priority to us. Our top professors, mostly native speakers, teach in an interesting and ingenious way. They attend professional educations very often – both abroad and in our school. All the classes are held in a relaxed, inspiring and creative atmosphere of our classrooms, while the number of students is limited because only working in small groups can lead to top results. All our programs support the individual needs of each student and are suitable for every age.
Since 2008, the Institution has been the examination center for the international exam in the Italian language – CILS. Thanks to many years of experience and achievements, the school received the Institution status in 2009 and got its foreign language learning programs verified at the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia. Today, after completing the program and passing the exam, our students receive a public document – a certificate of knowledge of a foreign language, which is also entered in their employment record book.
