Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Title: Benefiting from a linguistic training in order to better train and welcome Context and goals of our project: Lycée Sainte Agnès has been a European-oriented high school since 1995. We have a broad experience of teaching non-linguistic subjects in a foreign language and of welcoming international pupils to our school for stays ranging from three weeks to the whole school year. We aim at: - having 4 more teachers who will be able to teach their subjects in a foreign language from September 2016 onwards. - opening an international section from September 2016 onwards. - improving our teachers’ training in pedagogy. - enabling teachers and staff to express themselves in a foreign language in order to better accomplish their daily tasks. Number and profile of the participants: 7 participants, including - 3 teachers of history and geography who already teach non-language subjects or are willing to do so in the near future - a teacher of physics and chemistry in charge of teaching English applied to science in our technological section - a biology/geology teacher who is interested in teaching her subject in English - a teacher of economics and social sciences - the head of international activities, who is not a teacher himself Description of the activities: Two-week (no “s”) long training period abroad, in England for our 7 participants. The training period will consist in language classes, methodology and familiarization with the educational system in the countries where the training course will take place. The team of participants coordinated by the head of international activities in our school is in charge of organising the whole project from methodology to material aspects. Impact and expected results: -a greater number of teachers teaching their subjects in a foreign language as well as a greater number of pupils having access to these lessons. - opening an international section with specific papers in the French final high school exam , the ‘Baccalauréate’. - a greater number of members of staff involved in welcoming international students studying in our school. - a stronger identity as a European and international high school in the Angers region which we will be able to display on our school brochure and website as well as in the local papers. - closer relationships with the international department at Angers town hall as they regularly organise events such as an international parade. Long term benefits: - Making European citizenship a daily reality for our staff and the pupils studying in our school - Promoting a real opportunity for international learning in our local environment.
