CLIL training to enable the broadening of our bilingual school offering, to include more motivated pupils at bilingual higher secondary level (havo-tto)
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Our project, “CLIL training to enable the broadening of our bilingual school offering to include more motivated pupils from higher secondary level (havo)”, is a programme to training an additional 10 teachers to become members of the TTO – bilingual team. Teachers will participate in a five day residential course at Hilderstone College, Broadstairs, England to develop both their language skills and their CLIL didactic skills.
Participants will be able to teach more effectively and will have a different perspective on teaching their subject(s). Participation in this programme will give the participants greater intercultural awareness and appreciation of attitudes and cultures of other European countries and greater knowledge of British and other European Education Systems.
Participants will improve their English language skills and will have a much greater working knowledge of CLIL didactics. This project will allow Dr. Mollercollege to extend its already thriving bilingual department to include a second bilingual havo (higher secondary) class in year one. Current teaching capacity (number of qualified Tto teachers) means that we are able to offer three vwo-tto(bilingual pre-university education) classes in year one and only one bilingual higher secondary education(havo-tto) class. Demand for this level of bilingual education is high, As the only bilingual school in the area, we expect an increase in demand in year 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 and participation in this programme will allow us to meet demand and be able to offer places on the bilingual course to many more motivated young individuals.
With the new CLIL skills learned on this course, the participating teachers will be able to teach more effectively and their students will have more fun learning English as a foreign language. Our objective is to be able to help our subject colleagues and teachers of modern languages, by teaching them the newly learned creative and motivational skills.
