Erasmus+ is the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. Education, training, youth and sport can make a major contribution to help tackle socio-economic changes, the key challenges that Europe will be facing until the end of the decade and to support the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion. Many of the initiatives are based on opportunities to help teachers, lecturers and non-academic staff develop their skills in schools, universities and colleges around Europe – through job shadowing, teaching and training activities.

St Piers School had a visit from six teachers from St Georges College-Hartman House in Zimbabwe.
The teachers were welcomed by Peace Furusa who took them to their places of residence. They had a full programme, visiting the Medical Centre where they were taken round by Andy, one of the nurses, explaining about the multi-disciplinary approaches we use. They then went to observe some lessons in the school. They all agreed they were an eye opener as they observed some different teaching didactics being used.
