Professional Development

The teachers at Europass have been able to improve their professional skills in various fields thanks to different Erasmus projects:

Thanks to the Erasmus+ accreditation won in 2021 (2021-1-IT02-KA121-ADU-000006818), many teachers embarked on individual mobility to attend professional development courses or engage in job shadowing in partner schools.

Erasmus KA1 funds were also used to bring expert trainers from abroad to conduct seminars for Europass school teachers.

Other KA2 projects

Thanks to the Erasmus+ Digitise – Toolkit for 50+ project (2021-1-RO01-KA220-000034802), our teachers developed their digital skills, allowing them to offer more interactive and effective lessons. They participated in training sessions on digital tools in Berlin, Cluj-Napoca, and Thessaloniki.

Through the Erasmus+ Creativity for Innovation project, our teachers learned innovative and creative methods for teaching foreign languages to adults. In particular, two teachers attended training on the Callan method in Zagreb (Croatia) and on storytelling in Amsterdam (Netherlands).

The Erasmus+ project Learning Out Loud (LOL) allowed our teachers to develop even more engaging and effective activities to support our students in their learning path, integrating elements of stand-up, improv theatre, and positive psychology in our language lessons.

The Jean Monnet Project EUTEAM provided our school with the opportunity to organize teacher training courses about the EU, both online and in-person, allowing our community to promote active citizenship and the common EU values.
