Erasmus+ Teacher Training

Erasmus+ Teacher Training is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. As the successor to Comenius, Grundtvig and Erasmus, Erasmus+ has taken over the funding of training for teachers in other European countries from 2014 to 2020. Atlas Language School is an approved training centre for the ACELS / QQI Certificate in English Language Teaching (CELT). We have a team of DELTA-qualified, experienced and motivated ELT teacher trainers. They are not only practising teachers of English, but also experienced in using up-to-date, innovative methods at all levels of language learning. Our team of teachers are advocates of regularly bringing Irish life and culture into the ELT classroom, as well as developing ideas that use the city as the classroom.

Life, Language and Literature – A New ELT Methodology Course for Teachers

The Life, Language and Literature for Teachers is a two-week course. It consists of 20 contact lessons per week. In addition, we offer an extensive cultural and social programme which is directly linked to the afternoon sessions. While there is a distinct focus on exploring teaching methodologies that allow us to bring literature and culture into the ELT classroom, the course also involves a significant element of English language improvement and a focus on developing language awareness.

We have developed this course for practising teachers who wish to update their knowledge of contemporary English and who want to increase their appreciation of different methodologies and teaching techniques that can be used to bring culture and literature into the ELT classroom. The course explores and promotes awareness of Anglo-Irish literature and Irish writers in Dublin, a UNESCO City of Literature. We also examine the impact of recent developments in ELT on the teaching of literature and cross-cultural awareness.

Course Info

  • 20 lessons of group tuition / week

  • 1 lesson = 50 minutes

  • Course Dates: 13 July to 24 July 2020

Methodology

The input sessions are a blend of theory and practice based on Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) methodology. We will use a mix of presentation and demonstration of practical teaching activities with in-house developed Irish-themed materials. As the course progresses, participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own practice, consider alternative practices and build up a bank of resources that they themselves can try out and then adapt to their own professional teaching contexts. During the course, they will also take part in our activity programme, in which they are encouraged to develop their language skills in a more informal environment outside the classroom and further enhance their knowledge of Ireland.

Technology in the Classroom

This Teachers’ Course is a two-week course. It consists of 20 contact lessons per week. In addition, we offer an extensive cultural and social programme which is directly linked to the afternoon sessions.

The primary objectives of the course are to familiarise the participants with recent pedagogical and classroom technology developments in ELT and to increase participants’ confidence in the use and application of some applications, particularly in an environment where many of the students are very computer literate. It will also provide an opportunity to develop and consolidate participants’ own language skills and promote awareness of modern, contemporary Ireland. The programme further aims to establish contacts between teachers from a variety of European backgrounds and facilitate future networking.

Course Info

  • 20 lessons of group tuition / week

  • 1 lesson = 50 minutes

  • Course Duration: 2 weeks

  • Course Dates: 10 August – 21 August 2020

  • Level: Upper-intermediate (B2)

Methodology

The input sessions are a blend of theory and practice in ELT using presentation and demonstration and practical activities using mobile and other classroom technology, and mobile and web applications. As far as possible participants will get to use all of the devices and applications to which they are introduced and will learn to adapt some ready-made programmes to their particular classroom requirements. During the course, they will also take part in the activity programme where the participants will be encouraged to develop their language skills in a more informal environment outside the classroom and further enhance their knowledge of Ireland. There will be a focus on exploiting school trips with mobile technology in their own teaching environments to develop language skills.
