Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia, have designed a one-year training project with an aim to offer professional support, inspiration and training to kindergarten staff, school teachers and other pedagogues, in the field of relational competence development, establishing, building and maintaining relations with children, adolescents and parents with whom they are working every day within their pedagogical practice. The aim of the project is to make progress in the development of the relational competence of pedagogues and to enable them to connect, to learn and to exchange values which are the basis for promoting the mental health of children, adolescents, adults and the entire society.
Developing relational competences in pedagogical relations.
As professionals and practitioners with many years of experience in the field of preschool education in Serbia, we have recognized the increasing need of educators and professional associates to systematically describe and circulate processes in interpersonal relationships through which they work together with children, parents and colleagues during their work. The program we created corresponds to the need for the cultivation and promotion of socio-emotional competencies of preschool teachers, through the concept of relational competences, as suggested by Juul and Jensen.
Program points to the importance of developing relational competences for educators and other professionals who works in preschool facilities. Many of them already recognize importance of developing strong relationships, importance of improving and strengthening the quality of relationships with a child, colleague or parent. In other words, in order to achieve their professional goals, educators ought to develop relational competencies.
