At the Helmut Schmidt Schule Bremen I will present my experiences as an FSA. The event will be in English via Zoom and I will talk about my experiences with Erasmus+, my time in Germany and my experiences at school and with the program.
As a small introduction, here is the application for a foreign language assistant at our Helmut Schmidt School:
Please justify and explain why and for what purpose it makes sense to use it at your school or in your lessons:
The foreign language assistant is trained in various courses (higher commercial school, one-year preparatory vocational school, commercial school) and apprenticeships (office management clerk, sports and fitness clerk, event clerk, …) in a team, mainly in English and compulsory elective courses deployed, supports projects and will get to know the special features of a vocational school (e.g. dual system). At the request of the foreign language assistant, it is of course possible to work in professional learning fields or in interdisciplinary areas.
As a certified European school, the foreign language assistant will support our school in the organization and implementation of Europe Day and Europe Week and will be able to contribute their own ideas. In addition, some of our mostly adult students are prepared for various internships abroad. In addition to the foreign language preparation, the foreign language assistant can also prepare the students for another culture and report on their own experiences. Furthermore, the Helmut Schmidt School cooperates with foreign partner schools (Netherlands, Slovakia, Denmark, Norway) within the framework of Erasmus+ projects. Here there is the opportunity to support teachers in existing projects or to accompany groups of students on an exchange in a partner country.
In addition to the teaching and school organizational experience, we can enable the foreign language assistant to participate in various training courses and projects in order to prepare the foreign language assistant for the job, e.g. B. to prepare as a teacher.
