Is this a case of the perfect storm, where you have all these different factors coming together to create a situation that no one could’ve seen coming? Is it possible that many people in our society are feeling disenchanted with their lives and themselves as individuals because they want so badly for things to change without truly knowing why or how?

The school holds professional development courses throughout the year, which are still eligible for EU funding through the Erasmus+ scheme. Grants are available to individuals working in education in EU nations as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, and FYR Macedonia under the Erasmus+ programme.

You must apply for an Erasmus + grant through your school, group, training institution, or university. You can’t submit a single application. Teacher training colleges and universities, as well as other organizations, request that we create customised courses for their teaching and non-teaching staff. If you want us to develop.

For more information about how to apply for an Erasmus+ grant, contact the Professional Development Course Director, who will be delighted to assist and advise you.

The Lake School provides over 40 Professional Development Course opportunities in the Erasmus+ Course Catalogue, as well as many more options through the School Education Gateway.

Aftercare programs and assistance

Each attendee will receive a bundle of practical activities to use in their schools and share with their colleagues.

Teachers on our Professional Development Courses are all encouraged to join us on Twitter, @EnglishinOxford, to discuss English teaching ideas, classroom queries, and ideas about English with their friends and colleagues.
