About

Vlatka Butkovic holds a Masters Degree in Art History and in English Language and Literature from the University of Zagreb, Croatia.

She has been the Director and ESL teacher the Butkovic Education Centre for over 20 years. Vlatka manages the duties as a principal, a curriculum designer, trainer and mentor.


Her field of study in the recent years has been the synergy of Classroom Communication and Instructional Technology with the aim to help students recognise the purpose of learning. Having understood the neglected needs of every individual student in the current teaching practice, Vlatka developed the Butkovic method™, a set of highly adaptable elements of teaching for any classroom regardless of the Subject.


Her goal was to provide a platform for teachers and educators in Croatia and internationally, to exchange knowledge, teaching resources, ideas and good teaching practice. In 2017 Vlatka became a member of the organising team of EdChange Global. Vlatka’s designed ECG’s new website and is connecting teachers in Europe with teachers around the world through her role as ECGlobal Project Manager for Europe.


Vlatka’s love for web-design and media marketing keeps her finger on the pulse of change and helps her continuously adapt her method to the new generations. She holds workshops for schools and universities implementing effective solutions in every-day classrooms and curriculum. She also assists Social Services in helping children from troubled families to open up and connect with their peers. Vlatka also sings jazz and blues and knits. Her long time dream is to illustrate and publish story books she’d written inspired by her kids.

Since 2016 Butkovic Education Centre published a series of interactive textbooks for ESL learners, FAIL FORWARD IN READING 1-4, FAIL FORWARD IN GRAMMAR Starter-4 , A CUP OF ENGLISH 1-4 and KEEP UP 1-3 authored by Vlatka Butkovic and her colleague and dear friend, Anita Poljak.
