Our courses respond to the needs of teachers around Europe. Our offer of courses changes every year depending on the needs that we detect and the suggestions that we receive from our partner centres and colleagues.

We are preparing our course offer for 2023. In which, as always, there will be courses on information technologies, teaching innovation and, of course, NON-formal activities, but which are essential in teacher training (soft skills, NON-verbal communication techniques, etc.).

In all our courses, the teaching staff are university, primary or secondary school teachers, with specific training in the subject they deal with. We try to have a different teacher every day, because this way you can see more points of view: not all teachers have the same teaching style.

During school hours, the following works…. But the day is long and there is time to go to the beach and for more things…..

[RUNNING !!] COURSE: Soft skills and Non-verbal communication for secondary education and vocational training teachers (Unofficial title: “let’s dance in Alicante”).

Soft skills are personality traits and behaviours that will help candidates get hired and succeed in their work. Unlike technical skills or “hard” skills. Soft skills are interpersonal and behavioural skills that help people to work and get on well with other people and to successfully develop their professional careers.

In this course we aim to train teachers to improve their Non-verbal communication and help them transmit this knowledge to their students.

The development of the classes will be completely practical, and it includes activities on the beach, dance activities, postural hygiene, voice and visual expression and all the Nontangible aspects that can help improve our personal image so that we can transfer it to our students.

[FINISHED !!] The educational system, VET and Higher Education in Spain (Course with informal communicative apporach)

This is an unusual course in which we intend (1) to present the general education system in Spain, (2) the Spanish model of VET and dual VET, (3) the model of higher education and (4) the connections between the different stages of the  education system; and all this (5) comparing it with the education systems of those who attend the course and (6) studying the possible connections for foreign students who wish to continue their studies in Spain. Since all of us (the participants and the speakers) are secondary school or university teachers, the course is also opened to discuss any other aspects related to our profession, with the special aim that we all learn from each other.

The course will take place over five days, with an informal format, like a get-together with friends and WITHOUT classrooms or traditional classes.

The timetable will also vary from one day to another, with morning, afternoon or full-day sessions, until the 30 hours of the course are completed.

The sessions will take place in informal settings to enable relaxed conversation: (1) a day of terraces, parks and cafes, walking around Alicante, (2) another day visiting a vocational training centre, (3) another day sailing for lunch on an island near Alicante, (4) another day visiting the University of Alicante and the last (5) we will improvise as we go along, according to what we agree on with the participants. For example, any specific school? Visiting Benidorm? Any company of any specific sector?

The format of the course is unconventional and therefore we must limit attendance to SIX people. In the event that the six participants are a group from the same country, we will offer to give the course in the language of the participants. In case the participants register separately, preference will be given to the FIRST PERSON from each country who registers (because it would be desirable to have one participant from each country).

Teaching language: Basic English

Recognition: Participants will receive a diploma of recognition and achievement, expressly mentioning the activities carried out and the contents taught in the course.

Course fees: 400€
