School development and interdenominational schools
Kind of project:
‘Standards and Realization of School development in Finland’ (continuing education offer ‘Learning in Europe’) and interdenominational learning in Norway.
Project background and project aim:
Since 1997 it has been important to our teaching stuff to set out for a „new school development“.
The high willingness of our team to get ahead can be seen in the performance of various internal and external training programs, as for example “future workshops”, the realization of the education plan brought up in 2004, the concept of a work secondary school with whole day offers, the development of offers during lunch breaks, the further development of a professional main focus with educational partnerships etc. . .
We’ve got an internal management team which is responsible for the coordination of the training programs.
However, the teaching stuff are always welcome to introduce valuable suggestions concerning the contents.
Advanced training on the subject "supporting measures" is extremely important for us at present. As our former work secondary school has just become an interdenominational school this year, school development has become a major issue for us. The handling of heterogeneity among students will be our main focus.
Emerging challenges are the main motivation for us to get an inside into well-functioning school systems like the one in Finland or Norway and to learn from them.
Moreover, we see the qualification of all employees as a main element of school development. Only increased competence makes professional actions come true.
