GLR Summer School
The GLR Summer School is a collaboration of GLR with two schools in Switzerland. During the summer break, up to 30 GLR students and 30 students from Switzerland come together in Rotterdam for a period of almost two weeks, to work together on video, graphic and creative assignments in combination with several cultural visits. The students are guided by teachers from the GLR and the two schools in Switzerland. All facilities of the GLR are available for this project. The students stay is arranged for in the StayOkay in Rotterdam. See: www.glrsummerschool.nl
Next to vocational skills, schools are expected to teach students certain soft skills that will allow them to become good employees, entrepreneurs and citizens. In recent years, these skills have been labelled as ‘21st Century Skills’.
The overall objective of this project will be the professionalization of the participating teachers as well as their peers at home, and the implementation of the 21st Century Skills in the strategic agendas of the schools, and, via international networks, also in other schools.
Eight partner schools in Europe are working together in this European, project that receives financial support from ERASMUS+. See: www.cs-21.eu
