Qui són els nostres PARTNERS?

Les nostres partner schools on els nostre professorat podrà fer una estada de job-shadowing són:

Zeldenrust-Steelantcollege (Terneuzen, The Netherlands) www.zsc.nl

St. Paul’s Primary School (Portlaoise, Ireland) www.stpaulsns.ie

Englantilainen koulu (Helsinki, Finland) www.eschool.edu.hel.fi

Per què aquestes escoles?

Our partners have been contacted and chosen considering our needs. They are good assets for our job-shadowing project because:

- Finland: the school has a long tradition of bilingual teaching (English / Finnish) and they can offer us the chance to observe and reflect upon their practices in a context in which English is the medium of instruction in subjects like Science, Arts and Crafts and Music, among others, at Preschool, Primary and Secondary level. Besides, in this school every class is taught by a team of two teachers (tandem teaching) and this experience will be so valuable for us in order to see and share our and their practices when two teachers teach together.  The school staff has experience in this field and it will be beneficial and enriching for us.

-The Netherlands: the school has a long tradition of bilingual teaching (English / Dutch) and they can offer us the chance to observe and reflect upon their practices in a context in which English is the medium of instrucion in subjects like Science and Arts and Crafts, among others, at Secondary level. The school staff has experience in this field and it will be beneficial and enriching for us.

- Ireland: the school is a school in which two languages coexist (English and Irish) and will give us the chance to observe and compare how two native languages are learnt and their role both in the environment and at school. We will be able to establish connections and comparisons with the role of Catalan and Spanish in our context. Besides, this school is a good asset to observe and reflect upon the role of Music as the teaching of Music is an integral part of the school curriculum. The school staff has experience in developing inclusive competences to integrate special needs students and newcomers to mainstream education and inclusiveness is also one of the kernels in our school.

The three partner schools have been carefully selected to cater for our needs as we want to make the most out of our job shadowing project in each school. We believe that the three partner schools offer us the chance to observe, analyse, share and reflect upon the objectives we set for this period of observation. Additionally, we feel that this observation period is fundamental in our situation as we need to learn from other experiences in order for us to improve our daily practices.

This job-shadowing project will also benefit our partner schools because, by sharing our experiences with them, they will gain practical insight into how our school operates, as far as our inclusive CLIL project is concerned. Our knowledge shared will be a two-way street in other words, we will both benefit from our experiences.
