Summary:SummaryThe focus of the project 'The basis for further development: excellence and bilingual education' in this subsidy application is the further development of the school’s existing broad-ranging international programme. Farel College is a bilingual school that offers en excellent educational programme for learning English (bilingual programme offering IB English A and B) and an extensive international programme focusing on European and international orientation which includes exchange programmes and other international collaborative projects (with exchanges in junior school and in senior school for VWO exchanges in year 10 and an individual work experience project in year 11; HAVO has an international workexperience project, by class, in year 10). The aim of this programme is to optimally prepare students for tertiary education. More specifically, there is emphasis on developing talent (in the form of an honours programme), personalised learning, heterogeneity in the graduation possibilities and the use of IT in realizing differentiation among the student population.Context: the project is in line with the long-term strategic vision of Farel College in the area of education (bilingual education & internationalization – differentiation and developing talent - personalised learning- innovation/IT) There are three goals we wish to achieve through this project:- to improve the quality of CLIL teachers - especially those who are involved in vmbo-t/MAVO-tto- to establish new international collaborative projects - to improve and enlarge the group of teachers capable of teaching IB English Language and LiteratureIn order to achieve these goals 10 teachers will follow CLIL-workshops at Cumbria CLIL (UK) and 2 members of staff will follow IB (English) related workshops (UK). Additionally, four colleagues will visit the International School in Genua (Italy) and the International School in Straatsburg (France), as part of the further expansion of the school’s international cooperation. With these studytrips we realise contact with more European schools to establishing further international collaborative projects (in addition to the partnerships that already exist with 8 European schools).The results of the study trips and courses a will be set against the objectives of long-term strategic vision according to the PDCA (Plan Do Check Act) methodology. Every element of the project is relevant to the school’s international programme that has been integral to Farel College’s development in the last ten years. As a bilingual school internationalization is an integral component of our bilingual programme that has at its basis language (English in the case of our school) and culture (internationalization).
