Učilište Jantar – The Institute for Adult Education
Učilište Jantar – The Institute for Adult Education, was established in 2010 in accordance with the Adult Education Act. Učilište Jantar has been offering quality courses for a variety of languages – English, Italian, German, French, Spanish and Russian, as well as Croatian as a second language. We offer a range of courses, from general to specialised, and tailored to the needs of our students and companies. All our programmes are in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR) and approved by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport. We are specialised in preparation courses for Cambridge exams including general, academic and professional. Our teachers are authorised Cambridge examiners, and we are one of the top Croatian institutes according to the number of exam-takers and results. In July 2017 Učilište Jantar became an authorised Cambridge Assessment English Centre.
Our mission is to contribute to the development of language competencies and to increase the competitiveness of human resources in the national and European labour market. Our vision is to become a nationally and regionally recognised brand in the area of foreign language education, including vocational programmes for adults. Our development strategy is based on improving our competitiveness by introducing innovative ideas and solutions in all business activities, increasing the number of educational services, introducing innovative teaching methods such as e-learning and distance learning, modernising teaching processes by introducing interactive and multimedia contents and e-support in line with European standards, adapting learning programmes for disadvantaged students, and ensuring stability by expanding to national, regional and international markets. The two slogans that have been used by the company since its establishment, depicting the original vision and mission of its founder, Mirjana Sobin, are “Teaching is a work of HEART” and “Into a world without language boundaries”
