Presentation

The Ministry of Education and Science is a body at the central level of the public administration in charge of forming and implementing the state policy of education, higher education and research. The Ministry is governed by the Minister of Education and Science. The Minister is accountable to the Seimas (Parliament), the President of the Republic of Lithuania and is directly subordinate to the Prime Minister. The Ministry is managed by a Secretary of State assisted by two Secretaries, one responsible for pre-university education, continuous education and socialization of children and young people, the other for research and higher education.

The Ministry of Education and Science formulates and executes national policy in the areas of education, science and studies, drafts strategic education plans, annual programmes, submits proposals and resolutions to the Government, organises matura examinations, approves the general content of teaching, training and studies under the framework of formal education (general core programmes and subject programmes as well as teaching, training and study plans), national standards for educational attainment, standards for vocational training, guidelines for study areas in higher education, accreditation criteria applicable to curricula and the order of accreditation, etc.

Services

The Ministry of Education and Science is responsible for co-ordination of all activities in relation to the ECML and for nominating candidates to ECML workshops. The call for applications for candidates is organised twice a year, at the end of the calendar year and at the end of school year in June and July. The information is published and disseminated through different channels: on the web page of the Ministry of Education and Science, in the educational news bulletin and via the network of language teacher associations.

A selection committee is appointed to carry out the selection procedure. It consists of representatives from the Ministry of Education and Science, Universities, Language Teacher Associations and Education Exchange Support Foundation.

The Ministry remains in contact with the participants of ECML workshops and afterwards invites them to dissemination events at the Teacher Professional Development Centre and other institutions.

On the web page of the Ministry of Education and Science, a new tool is to be introduced (currently at the development stage) for people in one or another way involved in language teaching or research to register their interest and receive information on ECML activities.
