Spanish Language Professional Development
Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Irvine Royal Academy is a non-denominational secondary school for pupils aged 11-17 serving the area of Irvine West, one of the most deprived areas in Scotland.In order to enhance its provision of Spanish to our young people, and to be in line with national developments in the field of Modern Languages, we would like a member of our staff to take part in a European mobility project, namely a 3 week immersion course in Malaga, Spain, run by Languages for Education Europe.The aim of this project is to have a member of our staff receive further training in the Spanish language and teaching methodology. The project would also create opportunities for links and partnerships with other European schools through e Twinning.As an excellent linguist and teacher of French, and having already taken on further study of Spanish in his own time and as part of his professional development, David Burns was selected through the Professional Review and Development process as our applicant for funding to attend this course.An action plan will be drawn up prior to the course by the Head teacher and the applicant to ensure that the professional learning undertaken is recorded so it can be reviewed and disseminated to other colleagues. Irvine Royal Academy’s strong self-evaluation and quality assurance policies will ensure that the learning activities undertaken in this course are reflected upon regularly and their impact reviewed, measured and evidenced through professional review activities.We hope that this European mobility project will have a positive impact on the teaching and learning of Modern Languages in our school, as well as our wider community through links with other primary and secondary school colleagues and meetings or events involving the parents or carers of our young people.
