ACES was formed in 2011 as a community of schools across Central Europe who all offer at least one International Baccalaureate (IB) programme.

Visit the IB website (link below) to discover more about the European Education Festival, Croatia 2019 being hosted in partnership with UNICEF Croatia.


The European Education Festival, that will take place in Zagreb, Croatia, on 4 to 5 April 2019, gives you an exciting opportunity to engage with participants that are committed to making a difference in communities across the world. Attendees from all over the region, representing policy makers, administrators, heads and teachers from state and international schools at every level are welcome to attend to share and learn about global best practices in education, to improve teaching and learning within schools, capture key developments in both education leadership and learning, as well as to create networking opportunities among leaders of education in the region. Join us in Zagreb for this exciting regional event!

This event is being run at as low a cost as possible to ensure that local educators can join as well (not more than 150 USD, including refreshments and food).
