Teachers Training Centre in Olsztyn is a public autonomous institution which is focus on constant improving teachers qualifications from Warmia and Mazury region. It was established in 1958 and had different names. After the administration reforms in Poland since 01.09.1999 it has had the present name.
Thirty teachers with minimum five year experiences in schools or other education institutions work here. They also achieved a high assessment in their work and have the highest qualifications. They are experts on different subjects such as: Polish and foreign languages, science and art, sociologists and many others.
We have a wide contact with all the teachers from our region, headmasters and sociologists who come to us to learn and exchange the ideas. We also have a contact with students and their parents.
We advise and organise conferences, meetings, classes for primary and secondary school teachers, methology advisors, local authorities and also competitions for students.

There are about 24 721 teachers in our region and 273 709 pupils. About 23 thousand teachers and headmasters are taught in our institution.
We have a wide range of courses and meetings for the teachers which give them a new light on the education process.
