CLIL - Módszertani sokszínűség a két tanítási nyelvű képzésben
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The aim of the project is the training of secondary vocational school teachers. As the only bilingual vocational school of chemistry in Hungary, where students study Maths, Chemistry, and Civilization in English, our primary objective is the development of content and language integrated learning methodologies. Our further objectives are acquiring expertise and fresh ideas for teaching specific subjects in English; creating, evaluating, adapting materials for teaching subjects in English; improving teachers’ language skills, focusing on the language required to teach their subjects in English. These objectives induce the internationalization of teaching materials, curricula, and supported by international partner relations and exchanging of ideas between participants from different countries with special focus on secondary vocational education. Our school wishes to send twelve teachers to the courses of International Study Programmes (ISP) to the United Kingdom to the following courses. Content and Language Integrated Learning for teachers teaching or planning to teach their subjects bilingually in English. Secondary Science, Geography, and History courses enhance the development of teaching Civilization bilingually in our school due to the integration of different subjects. These subject courses provide an insight how these subjects are taught in Britain and compare materials, methods, standards, assessments, and national education policies in other European countries. ISP courses for vocational subject teachers present vocational training in European countries, improve the command of English for vocational purposes, and up-date teachers’ knowledge of aspects of their chosen vocational fields. Courses for Secondary Teachers of English include creative activities and motivating materials of the secondary classroom, up-to-date information on changes in British Life and Society and Education System and of new developments in the English language. Using Technology for Teaching English courses provide a variety of approaches and ideas for examining effective classroom pedagogies for technology, using computers to design lesson materials (wikis, podcasts, web 2.0 tools, etc.). Teachers of English to Special Needs Pupils provide a range of new ideas, practical classroom skills and materials for teaching English to pupils with special needs and an insight into Special Education in Britain. All the courses provide an opportunity to improve teachers' own language skills and to exchange ideas and develop links with teachers from other European countries. The selection of the most suitable participants includes an internal application system, in which the needs of our teachers are compared with the objectives of the project. Teachers have to describe how they will implement skills acquired during the project and their dedication towards dissemination. Other important criterion is that all subject fields should be represented, so that the acquired material can reach a wider audience. As a result of the trainings, education in the applicant organization would be provided by teachers with high levels of language and professional competences. These would contribute first to the teachers’ own professional renewal by gaining new inspiration and enthusiasm for teaching their subjects, different perspectives on teaching their subjects, greater intercultural awareness and appreciation of attitudes and cultures of other European countries, greater knowledge of British and other European Education Systems, and improvement of teachers’ English language skills. Second, teachers attended the courses would hold workshops for colleagues in the school. Third, national and international conferences provide the opportunity to disseminate the experiences of the courses. Finally, publications of results in both written and online forms would increase the accessibility of knowledge acquired. Furthermore attending courses in the UK also provides teachers with opportunities to establish European school partnerships with British schools and the schools of other course participants.
