In-class accompaniment for Latin and/or Greek teachers

The IICS organizes activities of accompaniment for teachers during class hours, on-site at the schools that so request.

Our educators collaborate directly with the classroom teacher regarding lesson plans and accompany the classroom teacher during some of the lessons, providing support and guidance regarding the implementation of teaching methodology and the active use of the language.
The figure of “co-teacher” (comparable, mutatis mutandis, to that of a lecturer) intends to both ensure the continued formation of teachers and contribute to the competency level of students.

In order to launch such initiatives in collaboration with the IICS, the Principal of the interested school must forward a written request, by email, to our secretary.
