The summer school is primarily targeted at teachers from BE-Rural’s OIP regionsbut participation is open to teachers from other regions and countries. The summer school will include both theoretical and practical elements, with presentations from practitioners. 

Language: The summer school will be held in English.

All the attendees of the teachers’ summer school will get a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) certificate.
