LANACOS: residential language courses abroad

Language Courses for Teachers

Comenius and ERASMUS+ provide a European window of opportunity in staff training by enabling teachers and other staff involved in education to take part in training courses abroad.

"I liked the efficiency of application process - and ease!"

An added benefit is that courses are multi-national. This brings further opportunities for the exchange of ideas and approaches with the possibility of finding partners for further international collaboration. There is a wide range of professional development courses on offer in Spanish, French, German, English, Italian and Portuguese. Most teachers go for 1 to 4 weeks. If you work for adult education rather than a school please inform us as funding is different.

"My stay was better than I could have imagined.  The course and the staff were amazing at the language school and I have returned determined to encourage my pupils to get themselves on something of this sort. I personally would go on something of this nature every year! Learnt loads, lots of useful tools for my teaching, had great fun."
