EFL Modules

Teacher training courses based on the principles of Education for Life (EFL) cover both a professional and personal level, as they involve pedagogical and personal developmental themes. The topics we make in relation to both aspects (simultaneously in two separate groups) are aimed at both the staff of education and parents. The topics have been developed through four modules, each of which includes three 3-hour long educational meetings, written and video materials, home researches, feedback and an exam.

1. modul: march 28th, april 11th, april 25th from 5-8pm
2. modul: no published terms currently
3. modul: january 10th,  january 24th, february  7th from 5-8pm
4. modul: individualni termini


The first three modules (group modules) take place at the Lila classroom at 8 Langusova Street in Ljubljana.

By using the bell at the school safety barrier, you will inform us that you are behind Lila and you will be able to park the car in the inside parking lot. The signposts will bring you to the classroom.

The fourth module (independent) takes place in the Lila office at the same location.
