Summary

Due to the time of globalization in which we live, the school has decided to implement a multilingual program in Valencian-Spanish-English (PPEV and PPEC). This implies the need to train our teachers. This training will focus on two priority objectives: to strengthen the European dimension of the school (students, teachers and school) and to improve our students and teachers linguistic competence (in English).



From that moment, management team takes several decisions:

- Progressive implementation of multilingual education from pre-primary to secondary education.

- Specify subjects that will be taught in English in each level.

- Select how many and who will be the teachers to be trained. In this point it is decided to select 12 teachers who will have to meet certain requirements (described on the form).



To achieve these objectives we are going to do 2 types of activities:



1. Structured training courses. Basically, there are two types of courses:



- CLIL methodology based on English language

- Improving language skills in English



These courses will bring us a new way of delivering our content in a foreign language. New methodologies are based on the interaction between the content and use of language as a tool to reach them. Therefore, our goal is that our students are trained and prepared, being able to study or work anywhere within a globalized world, thanks to a good command of the English language. CLIL is the tool.



2. Observation periods (Job-shadowing), in schools.



These periods allow us to know the know-how of other European schools, their organization, and methodologies, and helps us to establish relationships with other teachers and institutions and create a network of contacts for the future.



After finishing these activities, an implementation, diffusion and dissemination plan will be established in order to ensure its effectiveness and outreach to students and other teachers. The aim is that everyone meet and share experiences and new methodologies. This plan consists of seminars, training sessions in school, creating resource banks, conducting group activities and organization of lessons that will be job-shadowed in our classrooms.



We expect a very positive impact on students, teachers, media, and families, as well as improving the professional and linguistic skills of our teachers and therefore our students. The quality of our teaching, the European vision, and multiculturalism will be widely enforced.

We designed surveys and uploaded them to the website. So parents, students and teacher filled them it online.

Most of the surveys were online surveys designed with Google Forms although we did others on paper.

We designed tests for the initial, half and final part of the project. Later we wrote a report about the test results as a Feedback document.

You can take a look all of the surveys and the final report in:
