Congratulations: UK teachers receive CPD certificates in Slovakia, 2017


Teachers who attended the Slovakian CPD workshop last year said:

“Having the opportunity to share experiences (and challenges!) with teachers from so many different countries brought about a real sense of unity”.
Hannah Bromley, International Coordinator, Beecroft Garden Primary School, London.

“The workshop was incredibly well organised and delivered a breadth of expertise from psychologists, sociologists and teachers on the theme of inclusion. For me, the most impactful workshop was hosted by Slovakian teacher, Katarina Hvizdova, and explored using eTwinning with gifted and talented children. Her examples of projects by 10 year old pupils were inspiring, demonstrating the heights children are able to reach using ICT when they are provided with exciting, motivating opportunities”.
Suzi Finlay, Moneyrea Primary School, County Down.

“I learned about useful apps that I will use in eTwinning projects as well as for general classroom use. The highlight was to meet so many enthusiastic teachers from all over Europe and create links for future projects.”
Einir Jones, Headteacher, Ysgol Carreg Emlyn.
