Teacher Development Programme

Erasmus Plus Eligible - EU grants available for teachers

(August 10th - August 19th)

This course is for non-native teachers of English and/or CLIL who would like to refresh their language skills while developing and exploring new approaches and practices based on the  most current research. Our teacher development programme has been professionally designed by fully qualified teachers with over thirty years teaching experience. This course is eligible for funding under the Erasmus+ programme.

The course offers CLIL, practical workshops plus intercultural and direct experience. Teachers will have the opportunity to brush up their professional and personal English, add to their lexical store, experience life with an Irish host family and complete a project which encapsulates their learning experience. All of this takes place in a beautiful coastal location situated just 11 kilometres from Dublin.
