The Teaching Improvement Partnership Project (TIP Project) led by Galway and Roscommon Education and Training Board and involving partners from the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, Portugal and Turkey has identified the training and equipping of teachers/trainers in relation to Education Employment Partnership activity as a way to improve teaching addressing Europe 2020 strategy

The objectives are to exchange best practice across the partner countries, to deliver 5 modules of teacher training activities, which will  upskill staff in partner countries including knowledge such as labour market information and to impact on vocational students career choices.

The project will develop a resource directory for partner countries and a set of case studies highlighting excellent teaching practice across the partners identified through training events and employer involvement. The project delivers the up skilling and development of staff, the showcasing of powerful resources through the exchange of practice, the potential of a more innovative curriculum through training which will address inequality and recognise diversity, and consequentially the improvement of life chances for young people and the sharing of good practice.

The TIP project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

The project will run from 31st December 2016 to 31st December 2018.
