LOOP-Friends visit

10.03.2023. Since 2020, teachers and researchers from Portugal, Italy, Greece and Germany have been working together with great commitment in the Erasmus+ funded project LOOP - Scaffolding in Teachers Development: Mentoring and Mentors in Induction Programs (2020-1-PT01-KA201-078764) to investigate and strengthen the role of mentors in teacher education and training programs. The common goal of the seven project partners is to systematically improve the qualification of teachers across Europe in order to overcome the major challenges of our time: Too many school dropouts, lack of resources for inclusion, and socio-economic and educational inequalities. To this end, the project partners are developing digital training and professional development opportunities as well as a digital exchange platform that enables teachers to network and share across Europe. In addition, joint training events, project meetings and a large international final conference will provide an opportunity to share experiences, discuss innovative teaching and learning methods and define the role of good mentors.

In this context, the Schulzentrum Carl von Ossietzky - gymnasiale Oberstufe welcomed 16 guests in the week from March 06 to 10, 2023, who concluded in workshops, classroom visits, and presentations that the state of Bremen has an exemplary support and qualification program for teachers that contributes significantly to an appreciative and development-promoting school climate. In many discussions, it became clear that the digital offerings and the Europe-wide exchange with colleagues also represent an added value for teachers from Germany: Inspiration, motivation and the attitude of mentors as role models for lifelong learning and as team players are promoted.
