Lagoa teachers visit Wales for educational and cultural exchange

A group of teachers from Lagoa’s ESPAMOL school group visited Wales this month as part of the Erasmus+ Job Shadowing project.

They visited the Ysgol Nantgwyn school in Tonypandy, Wales. The teachers described the “warmth and availability with which they were received” and how being part of this project “contributed to their professional development and enabled studies, reflections and exchanges of points of view”.

The purpose of this project is to enable teachers to develop technological, cultural and educational practices, “necessary for a transforming education”. By observing the work of teachers and pupils in the classroom, they shared teaching techniques, working and behavioural management strategies.

This experience also brought “added value” for the development of the Bilingual Education Programme (English/Portuguese), which is currently being implemented at EB1/JI de Porches (pre- and primary school) in line with the social and labour market challenges of the Algarve.
