Intézményi minőségfejlesztés a kompetenciák megerősítésére és a motiváció növelésére irányuló módszertani megújulással
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our school is a secondary grammar school providing four or five-year long courses. Talent support is our top priority. In accordance with our Pedagogical Programme we pay particular attention to teaching foreign languages (classes specialized in English and German, bilingual education), improving our students’ competencies and social skills. Therefore, we make great effort to improve our international relations and to take part in courses of wide interest in the European Union. Our institutional development plan can only be achieved with well-educated and motivated teachers who have a good methodological knowledge. We feel there is a need for strengthening and developing our teachers’ competencies and motivation. In order to improve our international relations and partnerships, competent knowledge of foreign languages is essential for our teachers. One teacher who is a member of our school board is going to take part in a language course and three of our teachers are going to attend methodological courses. These courses focus on different competencies: one of them provides cultural knowledge representing a minority (social competence); the other one improves reading comprehension with contemporary literature and the third one provides new skills for using technology to teach English (digital competence). All of our teachers are well-educated with the necessary prior knowledge. They are going to share their experiences among their colleagues in the school staff.We are expecting the following effects: the teachers, teaching in our institution can get a knowledge of new methods, which help to use the IT equipment in a more colourful and frequent way on the lessons, moreover making both the students’ and the teachers’ digital competency more adequate. Through the reading comprehension course we can also gain new methods and opportunities, which we would like to develop into a collection of methods and ideas useful for any other subjects. This way we could improve reading comprehension skills. The colleague, taking part in the language course, would like to gain a fluent English knowledge in order to represent our school in international conferences in an adequate way. She also would like to persuade, motivate the other colleagues, teaching different subjects to improve their foreign language knowledge. All of them are going to come home with new cultural knowledge, great experiences and international relationships after the courses. It will be a motivation for all the students learning here and the colleagues teaching in our grammar school. So we can start organising new international projects where not only a smaller group, but also the wider community of our institution can take part in, which can improve our competency and strengthen the institution’s European dimension too. Moreover it can join us such fruitful communities such as e-twinning, where the school’s quality can be improved continuously and in a very enjoyable and exciting way.
