"movements in sports are movements in mind"
Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 30 Jun 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

We are striving to take part in the programme “Education and health NRW” of the Land North Rhine-Westphalia. The aim is the promotion of integrated health and quality development in schools. A good, healthy school is a school creating tuition and education, teaching and learning, leadership and management as well as school culture and school climate in a health promoting way by suitable measures and thus improving the quality of formation in total. At the same time school realises the specific health education aims which belong to its teaching and education mission. Furthermore school also uses the preventative and health promotion potential of originally educational measures for the rise of health quality of the relevant actors and of the system school as a whole. That means that prevention and promotion of health are no additional tasks but educational tasks of school and integral parts of school development. In this case Finland can serve as a model with its settings-based health promotion approach. Thus it appears that health education in particular is an element in the process of lifelong learning as well. Mobility can evoke additional motivation among the colleagues as well as provide knowledge leading to structural changes in the school system.A total of six teachers should take part in the advanced training. Two of the participating teachers hold a leading position. The other colleagues mainly teach Leistungskurse (advanced courses which seek to impart additional knowledge to a basic course using a style similar to university teaching) of the “Berufliches Gymnasium” (a kind of vocational grammar school leading to the “Abitur” (a school examination approximately equivalent to the British A level)).1 Healthy teachers - healthy school!This health course focuses on nutrition, movement and mental training as well as its implementation in the everyday life at school and the curriculum.The contribution of sports does not only have implications on the commitment and performance in professional and private life but also on psycho-social sensitivity and quality of life. 2 European project management and design for teachers, headmasters and educatorsThis structured course aims to improve participants’ practical skills in the design, management and funding of European projects from shaping the idea, to identify the right European programme, to design a good project to get the funds.The first project ideas “team building, health and sports” are to be substantiated, planned and realised with the help of the programme “European project management”.3 Outdoor LeadershipYou develop your leadership skills leading groups and process outdoors. At the Outdoor Environmental Education courses you develop skills to teach curriculum content in the outdoors – in the school yard, park or in the more wild venue.During the course you meet professionals from around Europe as well as the field of knowledge in a European perspective.The decision for the school development objective “Healthy school” includes the obligation to realise the project with definite measures of further professional education. The participants of further education will be prepared in relation to their tasks. The team for coordination will agree with the participants that all obtained insights will be recorded, that it is guaranteed that all the gained knowledge and experience will be spread in the school system (informative meetings, workshops, experience reports, etc.) and that the measures of further professional education will be reflected and evaluated.To evaluate the measures questionnaires constructed with precise criteria will be used which form the basis for final meetings which will be specifically agreed upon.Finally the feedback of the participants to what extent their awareness for European contexts has changed is of great importance.The participants will deal with aspects of health, movement and team building, f. ex.- health behaviour in professional life relating to behaviour towards movement- individual motivation regarding health behaviour- ecologically aware, healthy activities in pure nature- analysis of the Finnish health system, in particular the “settings-based approach” esp. in schoolsThe broader knowledge should be conveyed to the pupils by using specific, new ways of teaching. The effects could be that- conveying of information will be directly connected with practical experience and being consciously experienced- directing one’s perception occurs during practical application- existing knowledge (according to curriculum or rules for vocational training/regulations for the conduct of an examination) and ideas of pupils will be linked - teaching settings in pure nature or further environments will be developed to rise pupils’ motivation to learnSchool as a “system” will change as well. The profile “Health school” is to be integrated into the school programme and in the curriculum of the respective courses.
