CENTER FOR CREATIVE TRAINING (CCT) 
The mission of Center for Creative Training (CCT) is to enhance the overall learning environment in Bulgaria through the implementation of personalised technological solutions for educational institutions, the creation of innovative teacher training programs, and youth programming.
CCT is the author of 16 teacher training programmes. The training programs aimed at the meaningful integration of and holistic approach to technology in the classroom. Among the most frequented training programs are “School in the cloud”, “Design and implementation of ICT”, and “Instruments for attractive education”. All training programs are approved by the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and have an ISO Certificate of Excellence. CCT’s position is that the purchase of new technologies and teachers’ trainings are by themselves insufficient to bring about educational transformation. What is needed is a holistic approach combining the meaningful implementation of technology, innovative learning environment design, and strategic planning. Educational transformation has to have a clear objective, in sync with the demands of today, attuned to the future.
CCT initiatives are summarized below:
- Schools of the Future - Technological consultant and partner in the creation of a technologically innovative educational environment for the program “Schools of the Future” by the America for Bulgaria Foundation.
- Science Camp - The international “Science Camp” program, taking place in Bulgaria, designed and organised by CCT, which brings together young people with scientists for 5 days of workshops and science activities.
- the ‘School in the cloud’ initiative aiming to integrate cloud-based platforms for education in Bulgaria.
- ‘Virtual and augmented reality in a learning environment’. In includes innovative teaching methods by using applications such as Google expedition.
