Teacher Skills Exchange Programme - The Prevention of Social Exclusion in UK Schools

Erasmus+ Key Action 1 - VET Learner and Staff Mobility

Project No: 2015-1-UK01-KA102-012835

Project duration: 24 months

Overview: We are pleased to announce that we secured funding from the European Commission to send 16 teachers from Plymouth to the Ostrow region in Poland to visit four Polish schools. TPSE is a project that will give teachers an opportunity to explore the Polish educational system; learn new methodologies and pedagogy used. The project aims to explore, compare and contrast the two educational systems and allow teachers to share knowledge and best practice in order to expand their knowledge and skills and add to their professional development.

Project Objectives:

  • Promoting an inclusive learning environment;
  • Maintaining engagement of learners;
  • Methods used to work with those who are or have been socially excluded;
  • Social integration of learners into an inclusive learning environment;
  • Links between social exclusion and Health and Wellbeing;
  • How does the Polish VET system use social inclusion to develop learners to become active citizens;
  • What holistic approaches does Poland use to maintain inclusion within VET schools.

Expected outcomes:

  • Gain an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the Polish educational system;
  • Learn about the culture (through cultural trips and discussions);
  • Observe and participate in lessons and identify the methodologies used;
  • Meet other vocational teachers to share best practice and experiences;
  • Learn and develop on both teaching and inter-cultural skills;
  • Support positive change within the UK educational system.
Creating a brighter future, through education and training.
