The EUREKA Project is a multi-partner EU funded project designed to share, train and disseminate best practice in identification and intervention of more able students across Europe. The project aims to do so primarily through the upskilling of teachers and professionals through the delivery of two training courses and a number of observation and learning visits to partner countries.
In November 2017 Titan will be providing the opportunity for a number of teaching staff and other professionals to visit two schools in the West of Ireland, to find out about their practice and their approach to working with the Most Able in secondary education.
The two schools included in the visit are:
- Coláiste Bhaile Chláir, Claregalway
- The school actively uses digital technologies in Teaching and Learning. Most notably there are no textbooks or e-books used within the school with the teacher and students working together to develop and generate teaching and learning resources.
- The school is committed to the highest standards of Teaching and Learning and in all instances will place the student at the centre of everything.
- They were selected by Microsoft as a 2014-2015 Microsoft Showcase School for excelling in transforming their learning environment to deliver a more personalised education to students and for using mobile and cloud technology to better prepare students for success in the workplace.
- Coláiste na Coiribe, Knocknacarra, Galway
- This is an Irish speaking school with 330 students with significant experience in dealing with Most Able students; having some of the highest achievers in leaving certificate subjects in the country.
- Their curriculum is designed to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing society in the West of Ireland. Coláiste na Coiribe students have consistently outperformed their counterparts in English medium schools in state examinations.
This CPD opportunity will include Senior Leader perspective in Ireland, lesson observations and opportunities to meet and talk to teachers from across Europe. Delegates will be expected to leave Birmingham on Monday 27th November and return on Wednesday 29th November. All travel and subsistence costs are met through the Titan Partnership/Erasmus Plus funding.
