This year’s finalists in the “TES” (The Entrepreneurial Schools) competition have been announced, and we are proud to be among them. “Prof. Ivan Apostolov” Private Language Upper Secondary School is one of the 30 schools awarded this prestigious recognition.

Our team and students have received acclaim both nationally and at the European level for their dedication to entrepreneurship education. Nationally, the school has been named the best entrepreneurship school in Bulgaria, and at the European level, it is among the finalists for the TES awards for 2024.

What is the TES Award?

The TES Award is given to schools that excel in specific areas such as:

  • High engagement of teachers and students
  • Allocation of resources
  • Community involvement
  • High professional growth prospects for students
  • Participation in various European initiatives

Factors Contributing to the Recognition:

At “Prof. Ivan Apostolov”, we achieve high results thanks to the following factors:

  • Project-Based Learning: Most teachers and all students participate in project-based learning programs throughout their secondary education. The involved teachers teach various subjects related to science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, and entrepreneurship.
  • Competitive Environment: Students participate in various national and international competitions, creating a competitive environment. They tackle different practical issues and come up with and implement vital social and innovative business ideas.
  • Innovative Methodologies: The school’s innovative curriculum includes Agile learning methodology and Design Thinking in entrepreneurship education. This helps students acquire teamwork and leadership skills in entrepreneurship, ICT, and science.
  • Mutual Support and Collaboration: The most experienced teachers and senior students mentor less experienced teachers and students in the project learning process.
  • Blended Learning: Students are provided with blended learning environments, offering activities both inside and outside the classroom. They are encouraged to interact with local community and business representatives.
