About us - Presentation

Brief presentation

The Romanian RWCT Association is a membership-based professional organization, including teachers and teacher trainers.

Though the association itself was only set up in 2002, its history and the members’ RWCT related activities go back to the late 1990s, when – within the RWCT network programme of the Open Society Institute New York – a group of dedicated teachers from major cities of the country (Bucharest, Cluj, Brasov, etc) attended an over 100-hour training course delivered by volunteers of the International Reading Association (IRA).  This was followed by mentoring and certification of the trainers according to a clearly defined procedure.
