Home / School / Teacher training is the key to student success

On May 26, 2022 we visited colleagues from the University of Athens National and Kapodistrian University of Athens NKUA and the 1st Peiramatiko Gymnasio Athinas school for our first face-to-face transnational partner meeting as part of the three-year Erasmus+ funded project, LOOP.

Our project aims to structure a valid mentoring program for teachers, through a dedicated platform. The platform will be an excellent place for exchange and meeting between mentors and mentees from every European country, which will encourage the exchange of good practices at European level, as well as information, news, innovative methodologies.

The project stems from the need to ensure the well-being of the teaching staff and the students: at the base of everything there is the belief that the success of students depends on the well-being and preparation of the teaching staff.

The important aspect of this meeting was to meet the presence partnership for the first time, as all previous meetings took place online, as the pandemic limited the opportunity for face-to-face meetings. During this first TPM, the partners worked together through participation in two different workshops to understand the importance of the relationship between mentor and mentee: thanks to case studies and role-play, the partners had the opportunity to learn firsthand through a holistic approach.

The sharing of the different European educational contexts with partners offers a critical point of view on our educational context, as teachers, researchers, headmasters and policy-makers. With our project we want to offer the possibility of new pedagogical landscapes.
