Educational Visit to Vocational Colleges, Schools and Companies and information/workshop about cooperative learning methods

in  Germany

This course aims to give participants a deeper understanding of vocational education in Germany. The 7-day-course is carried out in school and company visits, discussions and workshops during the academic term in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Participants will understand the German school system, how (vocational) education works and the idea how (cooperative) learning methods are integrated into the classroom curriculum.
Participants will get the opportunity to meet and discuss with teachers, trainee teachers and advisors and will get the chance of lesson observation. Cultural visits and social activities are included.

We are also able to tailor programmes to meet special requirements.
