School European Professional Development
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Our school has identified several needs which Erasmus training could greatly help with. Firstly, some of our language staff need to improve their language competences and would greatly benefit from attending languages courses abroad. Secondly, our school as a whole needs to improve its international dimension and make links with other EU schools. Finally, our school has invested a lot of money in a wireless network which is currently under-used and we really need some training and support in how students can more effectively use mobile devices in the classroom to facilitate their learning. We therefore would like to send 4 members of the MFL department on language training courses in France, Spain and Germany and 4 school-wide staff to observe excellent use of student mobile devices at a school in Sweden.
This would have a huge impact on the school: language staff would feel more confident in their languages and would be able to provide for some of the very able students we have at our school. The ideas and advice we would get from visiting the school in Sweden would enable us to effectively re-write our schemes of work in all subjects and be pioneers in this field for the local community to learn from. The links we would make would also allow us to boost the international dimension of our school and promote students to be internationally thinking and curious to find out more about other cultures.
