Description: This structured course efficiently combines pedagogic visits to schools/institutes, workshops and seminars. That is why this programme is implemented during the academic term, when schools and institutes can show the vibrancy of their daily life and operation.
Please note that this programme should be included as a Structured Course in your application to Erasmus+ KA1.
Participants will enjoy opportunities to meet and interact with teachers, head teachers or principals, etc.; to discover educational institutions in a variety of sectors (primary, secondary, vocational, adult lifelong learning, etc.); to experience a powerful and unique school culture; to network and possibly form reliable partnerships leading to possible Key Action 2 projects, etc.
English Matters will select a number of educational institutions related to the participants’ educational level so that they should benefit better from a wider selection of good teaching practices. This model has shown to be highly satisfactory for both the visiting teachers and the institutions visited. Everyone participating in this experience will receive maximum benefit from it. This will support the European Dimension in Education within a sense of community.
The seminars and workshops will help participants to better enhance their learning in a friendly forum for discussion and exchange about education systems, the culture of the host country, and educational topics of general interest. Also, Field Projects (“Contexts4Content”) to places of natural, historical and cultural significance will provide a solid base for the development of teaching resources.
*Note: Courses start on Sunday evening (16:00) and finish on Saturday at noon (12:30 approximately).
You should register this activity as structured course in your application to Erasmus+.
