Improvement of staff concerning language awareness, knowledge of different school systems and methodology
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

During the two years project five colleagues have successfully completed an English refresher course in United Kingdom. Furthermore six colleagues had conducted job-shadowing-mobilities in our partner schools in Orimatilla/Finland, Valflaunes/France, and Stirling/Scotland. The planned mobility in Italy could not be executed due to organizational problems. This mobility took place in our partner school in Kolo/Poland, instead. Our colleagues who teach English to our young learners did not study English at university. Therefore it was necessary to refresh their English knowledge and learn more about the modern use of the language as well as modern methodologies. So the learners will profit the most. The improved knowlegde of English and methodology leads to more self-confidence of the teachers and a deeper satisfaction in teaching. Furthermore the participants of the language courses talked about their teaching-methods as well as their systems; partly these contacts still exists. During the job-shadowing mobilities in the partner schools our colleagues get to know more about the different school-systems and the various methods of teaching. During the days at school and also even after end of school exchanges about and comparisons of school-life took place. Some ideas our colleagues brought back to our staff and could partly be integrated. For our colleagues the use of new media was very interesting because we only make little use of them. As our schools are still in contact we furthermore can profit from the exchange of information about this topic.
