The PPLI Teacher Team has recently welcomed 10 new members of Polish, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese teachers. The new teachers have completed both the online CPD sessions in June and some face-to-face pre-service training in August.
The CPD sessions are supported by the PPLI Education Officers and Associates as well as external experts in both post-primary and higher education. The training covered a range of topics from core contextual knowledge and MFL pedagogy to classroom management and language-specific methods. All new teachers also had a chance to meet the current PPLI teachers through a community of practice arranged in August.
All of them have now gone back to school and we wish them all the best with the new term of teaching and curriculum implementation.
