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

This course is for practising teachers who wish to extend their knowledge of both Irish life and culture and contemporary English as it is used in Ireland. The course also increases participants’ appreciation of different teaching techniques that can be used to bring Irish culture and literature into the English language classroom. The course at our school in Dublin, a UNESCO City of Literature, explores and promotes awareness of Anglo-Irish literature and some of the great Irish writers – Joyce, GB Shaw, Wilde, Kavanagh, Beckett – while also allowing you to explore Dublin’s many obvious highlights and a few hidden treasures.

Course Info

  • 1 lesson = 50 minutes

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 – The Next Normal

After a year in which many teachers have been thrown in at the technology ‘deep-end’, this updated course allows practising teachers to draw breath and reflect on their experiences of using tech to teach English. We look at how we have been using various tools to teach during this past year, and what we can do to use them even more effectively. While we will still use a blend of presentation and demonstration of practical activities, throughout this course we will be working towards developing some shared principles for using (and not using) tech in the future.

Course Info

  • 20 lessons of group tuition / week

  • 1 lesson = 50 minutes

  • Course Duration: 2 weeks

  • Course Dates:

    • • 26 July to 06 August 2021
    • • 09 August to 20 August 2021
    • • Or by arrangement for closed groups
  • 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.
