Our mission

The mission of the National Pedagogical Institute of the Czech Republic (NPI CR) is to enhance in various ways the continuing development of a general, vocational, art and linguistic education, and to support schools in the area of their pedagogical-psychological, educational and career counselling, as well as in the methodology used in the continuing education of teachers. All these services emphasize a general focus on lifelong education while maintaining close cooperation with the EU. 

The world around us is changing rapidly. Each new generation has to cope with completely new and hitherto unknown challenges, and education is the key to such a change. The National Pedagogical Institute of the Czech Republic monitors these changes, analyzes them and brings innovations not only in the field of children's education, but also of pedagogues and school principals. It thus helps schools prepare children for the world that will be here in twenty or thirty years.
