Why attend?

The aim of the workshop is to help you add to your range as a teacher or trainer and gain a flavour of the activities that you might experience on the teacher training programme at Pilgrims. If you are not sure whether you wish to attend a Pilgrims course, or you are not sure which one – this workshop will help you decide as well as give you new tools and ideas. These activities as well as contributing to your development can be used with your classes or groups.

During a 90min practical workshop activities from the following courses will be presented:

  • NLP and Coaching
  • Creative Methodology
  • 21st Century Skills
  • Drama techniques for the classroom
  • Difficult learners / Inclusive classroom

You will also learn how to apply for grant assistance support through Erasmus+ or share your experience if you have already been part of the Erasmus+ programme.

Guest speaker

Mike Shreeve has taught in state schools, language schools and management academies. He has also worked in a business and professional context. The connecting principle is an interest in people and their psychology.

Mike is CELTA trained and a qualified coach who aims to enable students to realise some if not all their learning potential. Since 1993 he has worked as a Pilgrims teacher trainer leading the coaching with NLP courses and teaching “difficult learners” (with Phil Dexter).

Outside of professional life, Mike lives in Brighton and enjoys walking and contemplating the South Downs and is (healthily) obsessed with playing tennis.

Who is it for?

English language teachers (kindergarten, primary and secondary schools), teachers who teach other subjects in English, school psychologists and school principals.


Free of charge
