Erasmus+

ABOUT ERASMUS+

Erasmus+ aims to improve the quality of teaching and learning in schools across Europe.  These EU funded projects provide opportunities for people working in school education to develop their professional skills and to work together with partners in Europe.  Activities support the sharing of good practice and testing of innovative approaches that address shared challenges.

 

OUR ERASMUS+ PROJECT

Navan Educate Together National School has been invited to participate in an Erasmus+ Project over 2 years from September 2018 to June 2020.  The particular project which NETNS is involved in is related to teaching and learning a second language. Teachers will receive training in and will be implementing the Content Language and Integrated Learning (CLIL) method. This method involves using a second language while teaching other curriculum subjects. For schools in Ireland, this means using Irish to teach other curriculum subjects. The partners are from Romania, Greece, Italy and Turkey and they will be working through English.  Teachers and children will have the incredible opportunity to travel to visit our partners and take part in workshops relating to CLIL methods, as well as hosting our partners on their visit to Ireland in March 2020.  Our partners in Greece have created a website for our project.  Click here to visit the project website, clil4dsn.eu
