CPD for staff to boost skills in language teaching and learning and sharing best practice.
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The main objective of the project is to develop long-lasting and enhanced opportunity for improving key skills and competence in teaching and learning languages using a variety of innovative strategies, including ICT and the holistic approach. Having been a participant of previous Comenius project our teachers had experienced firsthand impact of this enterprise on pupils and staff at Campsbourne. We are committed to establishing a mutually beneficial partnership with our partner school in order to start a long lasting learning adventure that will enhance teaching and learning experience and already existing love of languages amongst pupils and staff of our school. We are determined to support our staff at all levels in developing their confidence in embedding the European Dimension across all aspects of curriculum. We are aware that all staff and pupils from Year1 to Year6 need to be involved in the programme for it to become a success and a key element of our school life. During the three visits in Madrid, staff will have the opportunity to develop their potential and improve their management, planning and team leading skills. As a result of the performed activities, interpersonal relations among generations will improve and the intercultural dialogue will strengthen, teachers and pupils aspiring to achieve more will receive professional training , mentoring and support; language competence and skills in the area of ICT will increase among students as well as teachers. Partner schools will be positively perceived in the local environment, the attractiveness of the educational offer will increase. It is predicted that by using appropriate dissemination activities of the project results the benefits of the global and local levels will appear. First of all, the cultural awareness and understanding of other cultures will enhance the participants motivation to study foreign languages and perceive that as an opportunity to live a quality life in modern society; initiatives such as international days, cultural celebrations, European projects and team activities will transfer into long- lasting change in the community's attitudes towards the importance of learning together and being open to new methodology and pedagogy by sharing good practice. We live in a Global Village, the world of endless opportunities where cultural differences become not an obstacle but an element that bring us learners of all ages together; and we, teachers at Campsbourne, want to bring this world to our children.
