Distance learning

Distance learning

The distance-learning system offers self-education for migrant pupils from Poland spending a period in another country. Those unable to continue with their education in a Polish school can pursue a supplementary or framework learning plan in one of the schools run by ORPEG, i.e.

  • the ”National Education Commission” Primary School,
  • the ”National Education Commission” Junior High School,
  • the ”National Education Commission” High School.

Distance learning requires a degree of endurance if knowledge is to be widened and deepened, new skills acquired and progress made with the mother tongue. Pupils must do most of this work independently, and are obliged to submit a set number of test assignments in different subjects through the school year.

Test assignments

Assignments are marked and evaluated by teachers in Warsaw. Once all the assignments of a given pupil have been submitted, that pupil may proceed to take the classification examinations run at the ORPEG headquarters during the school holidays. A positive result at this stage provides for a pupil’s advance to the next class.

Educational obligations

Pupils transferring abroad are required to meet educational (schooling) obligations in place in the destination country. The school there extends support to them as regards integration into the local environment and the learning of the host country’s language.

The supplementary learning plan

Pupils meeting obligations as regards education and learning in their destination countries are offered a supplementary learning plan by ORPEG. The subjects taught in this case are the Polish language and knowledge of Poland, the latter taking in history, geography and knowledge of society.

The framework learning plan

Pupils finding themselves in exceptional circumstances (for example involving constant travel and transfer), and thus unable (for justifiable reasons) to attend local schools in foreign countries also enjoy the opportunity to implement a so-called framework learning plan. In this case, they assume the burden of studying all subjects included at a given stage of the educational process, as they would at a school in Poland. By working on the basis of a framework learning plan, a pupil is deemed to be complying with obligations regarding education and learning in Poland. However, this does not free parents of the requirement that they meet their obligations arising out of law concerning education in the country of stay.

Online consultations

During the school year, pupils have the chance to participate in online consultations ensuring direct contact with teachers in Poland. Classes of this kind are run via a modern e-learning platform and represent a major help with the completion of different test assignments, as well as preparation for classification exams. Classes in fact fall within the systemic project entitled ”Open school – a system for the support of migrant pupils” (Otwarta szkoła – system wsparcia uczniów migrujących), as co-financed from the European Social Fund within the framework of Poland’s Human Capital Operational Programme.
