Dunkirk was awarded a grant from Erasmus+ to enable 12 Teaching Assistants to travel to our link school in Finland.
The purpose of these visits were to focus on different aspects of their practice at Dunkirk. They performed an audit of their current methodologies and then observed practitioners in Rastaala School. They observed, discussed and reviewed their own practice and brought back different methodolgies and ways to improve what they do for pupils at Dunkirk.
We have partnered with Rastaala School in Finland for many years, and this was the first project to formally include Teaching Assistants and to enable Teaching Assistants to receive this amazing opportunity for CPD. Every TA employed at Dunkirk during the time of the grant who wanted to have an international visit to our partner school was able to benefit from this opportunity.
