Since July 2014 to June 2015 the International School Olomouc is offering an educational programme for preschool teachers in the Czech Republic. This programme called ‘Placements for Early Years TEeachers in the EU, United Kingdom’ co-funded by the European Social Fund as well as the Czech national budget via the Operational Programme called Education for Competitiveness (ECOP).
This educational programme provides practical professional development for teachers. During the academic year 2014/2015 about 40 teachers and Heads from selected Czech preschools and primary schools will participate in practical study visits in early years’ settings in the UK. During these study visits teachers will conduct focused observations, lead learning activities, compare and reflect upon their experience in order to learn about the English education system for early years.
International School Olomouc works in close partnership with the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). This organization helped our school to make links with the early years settings in the UK and through mentoring supports teachers’ participation during their study visits.
