NOTES ON METHODOLOGY

Sources and methods of data collection

Presented data are the result of the statistical analysis of annual reports filled in by upper secondary schools at the beginning and at the end of a school year.

Schools and educational institutions fill in the following forms for this statistical survey: the Statistical Report on Upper Secondary Schools – Grammar Schools, Technical and Related Schools, Industrial and Crafts Schools, Art Schools and Departments of Fine Arts and Design as well as Departments for Disabled Youth (Š-S/KP form) and the Statistical Report on Upper Secondary Schools for Adults (Š-S-OD/KP form).

Coverage and comparability

The statistical survey cover upper secondary schools located on the territory of the Republic of Croatia and data are comparable with data from previous school years.

Definitions and explanations

In the educational system of the Republic of Croatia upper secondary education is organised either as regular or special.

Regular education includes the upper secondary education according to regular educational programmes.

Special education includes the education of adults.

Upper secondary education may last from 1 to 5 years. It offers education and skills that are necessary either to enter the labour market or to continue education. It is not compulsory.

School is considered a group of students following classes of a particular type and stage according to the same education plan and programme at a particular location.

The number of upper secondary schools presented in tables 1.1., 1.3., 2.1. and 2.3. is larger than the actual number of upper secondary schools. If a single secondary school embraces several school units of different types, e.g. grammar school, technical, industrial and crafts school, each unit is then considered a separate school and is presented as such (see column "School/class units" in tables 1.1. and 2.1.). The number of upper secondary schools in which lessons are organised only for one type of a programme (e.g. grammar school, technical, industrial and crafts school) is presented in the column "Self-contained" schools.

Upper secondary education of disabled youth is organised in a way that enables an individual approach in specific class units or specific educational institutions.

The number of upper secondary schools for disabled youth is equal to the number of institutions for education of disabled youth enlarged by a number of upper secondary schools that contain class units for disabled students.

Education of adults is aimed to provide education to adult persons who did not completed a regular upper secondary education. The upper secondary education of adults is carried out in upper secondary schools and other competent institutions. Adult persons can complete this education either by attending lessons or by taking examinations.

Data on students who learn foreign languages are given for all students who learn a particular foreign language, irrespective of whether they learn it as the first, second or third foreign language.

Data on upper secondary school teachers include the number of teachers who teach in a particular type of school. Considering that a teacher may teach in several types of schools, e.g. in a grammar school, technical, industrial and crafts school as well as in a upper secondary school for adults, the given number of teachers does not refer to the number of physical persons employed in upper secondary schools. The number of teachers and assistants shown through the full-time equivalent would correspond to the actual number of physical persons.

Data on teachers and assistants cover persons employed on contractual agreement, persons employed on working contract and persons employed on author’s contract.

Assistants are psychologists, pedagogues, social workers and librarians.

Data by counties are presented according to the Act on Territories of Counties, Towns and Municipalities in the Republic of Croatia (NN, Nos 86/06, 125/06, 16/07, 95/08, 46/10, 145/10, 37/13, 44/13, 45/13 and 110/15.), with the situation as on 31 December, 2020.

The constitution and activity of the upper secondary education is based on the Basic and Secondary Education Act (NN, Nos 87/08, 86/09, 92/10,105/10, 90/11, 5/12, 16/12, 86/12, 126/12, 94/13, 152/14, 7/17 and 68/18) and Vocational Education Act (NN, Nos 30/09, 24/10, 22/13 and 25/18).
