Miniemeninstituut teacher training impact stories
Welcome, please enter!
This course looked at 3 different aspects of quality: structure of a quality plan and short introduction to EFQM, the human factor and the role of the school team. The course revealed the importance of involving the school staff and school team in the implementation of the schools’ educational quality. This course aimed at answering the questions of how to start and develop a quality management plan. It also offers guidance on how to implement the needed quality awareness. At the same time it focuses on internal strategies to make the quality management plan operational. During the course we were introduced to methods which enable us to edit our own quality system. At the end of the course, each participant worked out a possible strategic plan and presented it.
In this three-day study visit "Diversity in the Classroom” in London, UK (14 - 16 March 2018) the participants investigated on how to handle diversity and use diversity as a tool to reinforce learning. The course contained study visits to Netley Primary School and Torriano Primary School in Camden (London). Read Diederik's "Account on a London Season", a detailed report in English on the impact of this KA1 study visit. It also contains impressions on a KA1 conference in Bordeaux and his mentorship during a three-week KA1 traineeship period in London.
From 22 - 26/1/2018 Dutch teacher Tine Binnemans is attending the UDEL21 KA1 conference and training course in Portoroz (Slovenia). Main topic: diversity in our classrooms. On the programme: a visit to a special educational needs school, a lecture on multilingualism and newcomers with another mother tongue and cultural diversity (theoretical background and practical exercises and exploration of tools). Follow Tine's blog and background story.
Main goal of Erasmus+ mobilities, both KA1 training events, job shadowing, mentoring apprenticeships and KA2 teaching mobilities is the professionalisation of our school's staff and management.
Since the start of the new Erasmus+ partnerships in 2014, more than 10 staff members have experienced international mobilities. We hope their stories can inspire colleagues inside and outside our school.
Our mobilities have taken our staff all over Europe. They all have their specific stories to tell and one common characteristic: their pedagogical job will never be the same again. Life long learning is a fact!
