The application is for 3 primary teachers to take part in one of the immersion courses taking place in France in Summer 2016. The application is for one early years teacher and two teachers from middle / upper school. The course will allow all three teachers to increase their French language capacity, knowledge, skills and confidence in a native environment. The immersion course will support our teachers to achieve the Scottish Government's 1+2 Initiative: to provide children with an opportunity to learn a European language from P1. The hands on experience in an authentic environment will provide the teachers with the confidence and ability to embed the French language in their everyday teaching.Teachers on the immersion course will have the opportunity to learn the French language with native speakers, experience the French culture first hand and develop new teaching ideas and materials. The course will allow our pupils to use ICT to communicate with other schools in Europe. During the course the teachers will be able to experience and observe teaching of the French language from native experts. The course will provide all teaching staff and pupils with an insight into the French lifestyle and culture which will hopefully inspire and encourage them to seek opportunities to explore and experience other countries in Europe. All of this will have a positive impact for our ongoing development plan for 1+2 Languages in our school and for our development plan within our cluster schools. This in turn will help to raise attainment in the French language and encourage our pupils to select European languages at secondary school.
