Looking for Lead Partner


Home & school both aim to achieve the same objective, namely how to help children learn, become good and responsible individuals and as a result achieve success in their lives.

Many different studies show that if parents and teachers cooperate then the students get better results at school, got to school more regularly, their behavior improves, and also  have more positive attitude towards the school as an institution and to one another.

Teaching curricula which engage parents are much more effective. Nevertheless, it remains clear that cooperation between teachers and parents is not always an easy process.

This training’s objective is to introduce the course participants with effective strategy of cooperation between parents and teachers.

Methodology

The methodology of the course focuses on group needs and is aimed at affective and meaningful learning. Theoretical knowledge is built through experience and group exchange.

For that reason the emphasis is not on the joint construction of knowledge. Classes are not developed according to theoretical presentations, but in terms of exchange. The methodology intends to guide work towards the needs and interests of the participants rather than purely towards the content or activities.

At the end of the training, a self-assessment and group discussion will be conducted to check whether the objectives set for the course have been achieved.

How the skills learnt can be applied in teaching work?

  1. Discovering other experiences for exchange and participation in schools.
  2. Developing a strategy focused on opportunities and real possibilities.
  3. Improving the ability to motivate others to participate.
  4. Acquiring tools for conflict resolution.
  5. Promoting specific actions for the inclusion of families in their children' learning.
  6. Promoting an effective and smooth communication between parents and teachers.
  7. Establishing new channels of communication.
