This training course complies with the Quality standards for courses which can be funded through Erasmus+ Key Action 1 (learning mobility of individuals). Institutions in possession of such Erasmus+ grants may use their funding to cover the participation fee for the training course.
What is the training about?
Educational institutions should be challenged to improve certain skills necessary in the process of facilitating mobility of both learner and educators that would foster international cooperation in the academic system.
As the diversity of the world is represented within our classrooms, and in society at large, it is crucial to develop intercultural skills through various activities both inside and outside the institutions. This specific training aims to help teachers and educational staff reflect on their own intercultural awareness and be able to empower both pupils and institutions with intercultural mentality. Participants will also have a chance to learn how to ease the integration of an exchange pupil into a new environment.
What are the training objectives?
- Know how to design a feasible and relevant Learning Agreement for individual pupil mobility;
- Learn more about recognition of transversal competences in individual pupil mobility;
- Get inspired on non-formal education activities which will form part of individual pupil mobility;
- Exchange good practices with teachers from all over Europe.
Who’s the training aimed at?
- Teachers from secondary schools;
- School counsellors/Career advisors;
- Any educational staff working within intercultural learning and/or learning mobility.
