A Brave New Job for a New World
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
"BRAVE NEW JOB FOR A NEW WORLD"
The key topic is to find a solution for the current problem of unemployment through multidisciplinary work, aimed to provide our students with the suitable tools for enterpreneurship and self employment development.
PROFILE AND NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
The teachers involved (twenty teachers in total) are, most of all, highly motivated to face challenges in a collaborative way, and they have an accredited level in different areas of the project. Similarly, since we expect a future implementation of bilingualism in our high school, we intend to work the curriculum using English as a foreign language. For this, we have participants with proper accreditation as well as others who are preparing to obtain the B2 Level of the Common European Framework of Language Reference.
DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITIES
Among the activities we intend to carry out we could higlight the next ones:
- Project Work
- Development of multilingual oral expression and comprehension skills
- Use of ICT in the production, broadcasting and publicizing our work
- Development of Content and Language Integrated Learning so that our students can have a global view of the products
- Improvement of our students’ creativity and autonomy as a means to promote self employment and job search in Europe
- Use of a scientific method to study its viability and quality control of the production
- Description of the process and the product to share it globally
- Observation and Assessment of the process and its final result that makes our students aware of the employment world and social realities in their own background .
Twelve mobility activities for teachers at different locations in the UK and Ireland will be carried out. On the one hand, eight training courses in AICLE/CLIL methodology have been planned, two courses of linguistic TEF update on the other and two job-shadowing.
We will use a project-based methodology, encouraging collaboration between students and teachers of different areas, as well as the implementation of the curriculum to real life, employability and entrepreneurship.
EXPECTED RESULTS AND IMPACT
Boosting the bilingual program in our school and a possible long-term strenghtening in self-employment by our students
Since we started our project, we have created a group of people with a common goal: to get information, share experiences and make up activities in our different areas about the current and following business world and the exchange opportunities with other European countries. In the short term, our partnership has spread among our students and other members of our school who are aware of our regular meetings. During our last term, we are going to perform tasks shared with other European schools. The best way to show our work will be a change of attitude to our work turning it into a more collaborative and closer to the real world.
POSSIBLE LONG TERM BENEFITS
The development of an overall communicative competence in our students, not thinking of different cultures and languages separately. The creation of a culture of entrepreunership and European mobility.
This group has been created to search a more meaningful learning and we hope its impact will transcend our classrooms. Our collaborative work in a European programme will prepare our students to join a labor market which for some of them will be outside our borders. We hope our common experiences will be helpful for those who have this job opportunity. Their success will be our best diffusion.
