• COURSE INFORMATION:
CLIL course is aimed for teachers and school staff from pre-school level to primary, secondary, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers and company staff. The course will focus on CLIL methodology in a practical way as well as Teaching Foreign Languages techniques to improve our teaching practice as much as possible. Participants are expected to have at least B1 level of English.

During this course participants will learn everything about CLIL principles, how to design a CLIL course at the same time that you could have the resources needed to adapt your current work to CLIL methodology. Everything in a practical sense so that teachers coming to this course end it with a great knowledge of this theory and how to implement it. One of the strengths of the Course lies in the fact that its teaching is based not only in theorical activities but also in practical activities. In every single topic, managers will give you key contents and advices supported by practical cases and group work so that you are completely capable of implementing this methodology in your teaching practice with success.

• METHODOLOGY:
CLIL course is based on theoretical lessons and presentations of examples of good practice as well as discussions and experience comparisons. The course will have lectures, seminars and workshops to ensure full comprehension and every day assingnment support. Besides, before the starting date of the course, all participants will be invited to participate in an online previous formation related to essential vocabulary, grammar and skills needed to use English as Second Language Teaching so that all participants have the required skills to carry out any activity proposed during the course.
Every day, we will add new information about CLIL methodoloy, classroom management, engagement techniques at the same time that we will create new links to strenghten future common projects. By the end of the course, participants should have a specific CLIL lesson or unit designed depending on the course chosen. All the projects will be assessed and ready to incorporate it to their syllabus design. In this group work different participants will collaborate to learn about good practices settled in participant countries around Europe so that the learning process will be as complete as possible. Furthermore, trainers will make extensive use of evidence-based examples and experiences.

The methodology will have daily motivation activities, brainstormings, working in pairs or groups, simulations and practical cases based on real classroom situations. Besides, our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. At the end of the course, there is a final assessment. It will consist on a compulsory oral presentation about your CLIL project in groups to check the real understanding of all the contents. The course will provide the participants an attendance certificate including the detailed information about the course, e.g. title, programme and schedule. In addition, a Europass Mobility Certificate can be added on request.

Every participant of each training course will have the opportunity to spend some funny time and to meet more people than in another simple course. All courses of the company include some cultural, sport and historical networking activities during the week. Activities will involve participants from other courses of the company in order to create a great environment and to find the perfect partner for future projects in common. Networking activities are designed to deepen the relationship between all participants.
