Erasmus+ funded Project

Reported by Sofija Ljiljak-Vukajlović


YALS Association of Language Schools of Serbia is proud to be implementing its project TEACHING AND LEARNING ENHANCED, funded by the Erasmus+, an EU programme and a funding scheme designed to support activities in the field of education, training, youth and sport in the period 2014-2020.

Six teachers from three YALS member schools have been involved in the project. Maja Gavrilović Maksimović from the Livingston Language Centre in Belgrade has been the project coordinator, while these five teachers have taken part in the so-called “mobilities”, i.e. the first project stage which includes attendance at teacher training development courses abroad:

  • Sofija Ljiljak-Vukajlović, from Tom&Emma School in Belgrade, attended the course Spice Up Your Teaching Ideas: Methodology in Practice Today at ETI School of Malta, 24-28 July 2017
  • Jovana Popović, from Tom&Emma School in Belgrade, attended the courses CLIL – Online Tools for Teachers Working with CLIL and Spice Up Your Teaching Ideas: Methodology in Practice Today at ETI School of Malta, from 24-28 July 2017
  • Jelena Spasić, from Oxford School in Leskovac, attended the course Teaching Methodology for Primary Level Teaching at ETI School of Malta, 24-28 July 2017
  • Milana Papić, from Tom&Emma School in Belgrade, attended the course Teaching English with Technology at ELC School in Brighton, UK, 17-28 June 2017
  • Milijana Petrović, from the Livingston Language Centre in Belgrade, attended the course Language, Methodology and Culture at ELC School in Brighton, UK, 17-28 June 2017

Upon their return to Serbia, the project participants started the second stage of the project, the dissemination stage, the aim of which was to share the knowledge gained at the mobility courses with other colleagues, firstly, through in-house workshops at their respective schools and, secondly, at external seminars.
