We are excited to announce that from the next academic year ECP will be hosting trainee teachers from the UK. They will come to the College to develop their skills in an international environment.
This initiative, Teaching Together in Europe, has been created in partnership with the British School of Brussels, and St George’s British International School, Rome. We will work together to create the best possible training experience.
The student teachers will come from the Nottinghamshire Torch SCITT and the Pennine Lancashire SCITT. ECP will also be hosting trainees from the One Cumbria Teaching School Hub.
By mentoring new teachers we are passing on the knowledge and experience we have, just as our own mentors once did for us. We are hoping to create the next generation of internationally-minded teachers.
Working with our European and UK counterparts will open opportunities for student experiences and professional learning.
“The TTE partnership was born out of a desire to deepen connections between UK teacher training and British International schools in Europe. Our schools benefit so much from UK-trained teachers, and it is good for us to offer something in return. Educating children transcends national borders, and sharing ideas internationally will benefit us all.” Tony Emmerson – Senior Deputy Head, English College in Prague
