The Erasmus programme for teachers aims to help school teachers across Europe, providing them with an opportunity to increase their language level, take a look at some examples of « Best teaching practices » and innovative approaches to classroom management so as to enhance their professional skills.
The programme is designed for teachers of all levels from pre-primary to secondary and as part of the project teachers are encouraged to link up with teachers in their target language country. This year French in Normandy has so far welcomed over 50 teachers mainly from the UK as part of their in-service teacher training course and many have been part of the Erasmus project. As part of their course, visiting teachers have enjoyed observation sessions both in-house at French in Normandy as well with some of our partner schools, colleges and lycées here in Rouen. They have also enjoyed working on assignments using realia and preparing school visits to museums and historic monuments here in the city of Rouen via the excellent online and accessible educational and learning resources provided by French in Normandy.
