The project is to enable two applicants from this organisation to each attend a one week language immersion course in Málaga, Spain. One applicant who currently teaches up to Advanced Higher (equivalent to first year university) level needs to refresh her language knowledge in order to be able to teach all courses and maintain the level of target language she has previously used. She also wishes to improve her knowledge of contemporary Spanish issues. The other applicant has some knowledge of the Spanish language and culture and would like to further improve this to help her continue teaching S1-2 and start with S3. The objective for both applicants is to become better language teachers through an increased ability to use target language in the classroom, enhanced cultural awareness of the country, a more in-depth knowledge of contemporary Spanish issues and the opportunity for professional dialogue and self-reflection offered by networking with other teachers.We hope to identify potential partners abroad and both establish links and share good practice with Spanish and other European schools. We also aim to encourage pupils and staff to use ICT more effectively and confidently.Finally, the project is specifically designed to promote the flexibility and mobility of staff within the school curriculum, and consequently hopes to increase motivation and uptake of pupils by raising the profile of Modern Languages.
