Poziv za realizaciju programa za decu migrante


Drage kolege,

Udruženje nastavnika engleskog jezika “ELTA” poziva sve zainteresovane nastavnike engleskog jezika iz Beograda da se pridruže realizaciji programa pomoći za decu migrante. Program organizuje Ministarstvo prosvete, nauke i tehnološkog razvoja u saradnji sa Britanskim savetom i Udruženjem nastavnika engleskog jezika “ELTA”.

Program se odvija svakog dana u prepodnevnim i popodnevnim časovima, u trajanju od 45 do 60 minuta, za decu od 5 do 14 godina, u blizini lokacija gde se migranti najviše okupljaju u Beogradu. Nastavnik će na terenu imati pristup internetu i koristiće materijal dostupan putem sajta Britanskog saveta uz dodatak drugih materijala koji imaju pravo korišćenja.

Zbog zaštite dečjih prava, nastavnici koji ovom prilikom budu odabrani, biće u obavezi da donesu uverenje da nije pokrenut krivični postupak i da nije pokrenuta istraga protiv njih. Uverenje se može naručiti putem interneta, na sajtu Prvog osnovnog suda u Beogradu. Taksa za izdavanje ovog uverenja biće refundirana.

Molimo sve zainteresovane nastavnike da se prijave što pre na imejl adresu

Srdačan pozdrav,

ELTA tim
