"Volkshochschule " Brandenburg on Havel (VHS) as part of the public administration sector of the town of Brandenburg is an innovative centre of further education in our town. Our language courses are based on the Common European Framework for Languages. Our teachers are highly qualified university graduates or they successfully passed other internationally recognised exams in the field of languages and pedagogy. They were either trained in adult education or proved their competence through long-standing successful teaching at our institution. It is our policy to urge our teachers and lecturers to regularly update their qualifications and skills. Language courses in the mother country of the respective language take a core position here. Nowhere better than in these countries they can enhance their discursive skills, improve their knowledge of the respective country and its culture, experience current social developments in Europe and get a better understanding of European policy. Contact with course participants from other regions of Europe contributes to better mutual understanding and solidarity.
By selecting our teachers for such projects abroad we also appreciate their qualified teaching at our VHS over several years. In this way they are being motivated for further high-quality courses and their identification with our institution is strengthened. Back home they will talk about their experiences abroad at our teachers` conference and can thus pass on their positive attitude towards further education and a feeling of solidarity within Europe to their colleagues.
We at VHS Brandenburg do hope that participation in such projects can create contacts with institutions of adult training abroad and result in regular mutual exchange of experience.
Last but not least: Further education of our teachers at VHS Brandenburg guarantees the running of lively, high - quality courses based on the needs of our participants and taking into account the political situations in Germany and Europe. With the help of our qualified teachers our participants in language courses will not only be able to enhance their language skills but moreover improve their knowledge about the country whose language they are learning, its culture, history, traditions and current political situation. They broaden their intercultural competences not only by speaking the foreign language but they learn to think, feel and act as Europeans.
