For 25 years now, Centre of Technical Culture Rijeka has been offering programs whose main goals are raising IT and technical literacy of all citizens. Our programs of non-formal education are attended by children, youth, adults and pensioners. Through educational programs, courses and workshops we instill the idea of life-long learning to our clients, and thanks to our adequately furnished premises our programs are accessible to everyone. We encourage our clients to be creative, to engage in teamwork, to face and solve problems, to be sensible to persons who are different, to be tolerant and to spend their free time in a better way. In our activities, we often cooperate with various experts – psychologists, special education teachers, pedagogues, etc…
During 25 years, over 50.000 attendees have participated in our educational courses, programs and events, and over 7.000 children and 3.000 adults have completed one of our educational programs.
Besides our regular program of IT education for children, youth and adult citizens, CTC Rijeka has been successfully carrying out programs of sensitization and socialization of socially excluded groups (pensioners, war veterans, persons with disability).
Continuing its 20 year tradition, CTC Rijeka is organizing IT courses and workshops for children, youth adults and persons of the 3rd age while offering every client individual approach.
Educational programs are shaped and adjusted to needs of different groups of users.
In the end, newly acquired knowledge and skills enable participants to find job more easily, organizations get educated and certified employees, rate of unemployment is lowered, and local community becomes able to respond to dynamic environment. Special attention is given to the organizations of civil society. In the field of IT education, we have established cooperation with organizations from technical culture field, organizations which help people with disability and people with special needs, war veterans, pensioners, etc.
Our education programs have been attended by employees of local authorities and that has had direct impact on computerization and better access to information inside their organizations, and society in general. This way the program complements the program of Community Development.
In our programs we are often focused on family and its empowerment, it the way of cooperating with NGOs whose goal is to develop better communication. We also encourage parents and children to use new technologies in order to better spend free time, at the same time considering personal and family safety and quality of life (safe use of computers and mobile devices, prevention of computer addiction).
