Frequently Asked Questions

The course is aimed at in-service teachers and staff in the primary, secondary, vocational and higher education sectors working with Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) or who are planning to apply CLIL in their teaching methodology.

After registration, participants on this course programme will receive:

  1. a pre-course questionnaire which will enable trainers to learn about the participants’ backgrounds
  2. information about the Europass Mobility Certificate
  3. a recommended reading list to prepare participants for various aspects of the course
  4. information about York to prepare teachers for their cultural experience.

At the end of the course, you will:

  • have explored the dimensions of CLIL and get an overview of the application of this discipline
  • have reviewed practical areas such as the 5 Cs of CLIL, cognition and thinking skills, scaffolding and assessment for CLIL
  • understand how to design dual-purpose learning materials
  • experience the cultural heritage of York with its linguistic environment

The course ends with an evaluation session, where teachers are asked to reflect upon the value of the knowledge gained on the course, create a Personal Development Action Plan, and select activities which they would like to try out in their own classes or projects. They are invited to join the York Associates Community, which allows networking and contact with the trainers and fellow colleagues, and with participants from other courses.
If you are from a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you will need a visa. Students from certain countries do not need to apply for a visa before arriving in the UK. You can check if you need to apply for a visa on the UK Visas and Immigration website.
We can recommend a few accommodation options. Find out about them on our accommodation page.

In the unlikely event of a course not recruiting sufficient numbers you would be offered an alternative.
