TRAILs is a thirty-month project titled “LSP Teacher Training Summer School (TRAILs)” co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union (Re: 2018-1-FR01-KA203-048085).
TRAILs addresses the issue of teacher education and skills development to promote high quality and innovative teaching in the field of Language for Specific Purposes (LSP).
The starting point of the project is the fact that most higher education teachers involved in the LSP field have received little or no specific training, which is a matter of particular concern for teachers and learners of LSP in VET institutions where language skills are expected to enhance mobility and employability.
The 8 partners involved are contributing to the design of new LSP teacher training programmes that will be offered at European higher education institutions, on a transnational collaborative basis because the problems identified cannot be dealt with on a regional basis only. Implementation of the programme will take place in February 2021 during the LSP teacher training summer school which will be held online due to Covid-19.
