Context and origin of this project: - Our school is the biggest educational facility in the Highland region.

Number and profile of participants: - 7 selected English teachers will be involved in this project. They include qualified English teachers and practising English teachers with long experience with teaching English. - These participants contribute actively to an increase in students´ English level at our school by organizing a conversation competition, creating English materials focused on grammar, general and specialized topics and organizing language courses in England for students. - As result of this, it is in the school´s interest to support their professional development abroad. Description of activities: - The teachers will take part in 6 language-methodological courses as well as 1 methodological course in different parts of Great Britain, Ireland and Malta. - They will improve their language skills, become familiar with modern methods and approaches to teaching English and ways to put them into practice. They will learn to teach classes of mixed compositions in terms of different abilities and class sizes. - At the same time the teachers will exchange their experience with other foreign teachers and will get to know cultural differences. Ways of project organization: - The selected project manager, with the support of the project team, will organize, manage, and record the details about the courses including their benefits. - Agreements will be signed with the participants of courses and other activities. Expected results and impacts of the project: - The impact on the students will include the teachers using more modern approaches to teaching.
