What to bring with you:
Please check with the ERASMUS+ coordinator at your school (or with your National Agency) if you need to bring any printed documents with you to be signed and stamped on site. Often, it may be sufficient to send documents electronically. You can find our official company details here: OID Numbers and Fiscal Data – Europass Network (teacheracademy.eu) At the end of the course, we will provide you with a signed and stamped attendance certificate. Please contact email@example.com if you need any support.
Typical Food or Drink from your country or region
We invite all participants to take part in our European Food Fair. During the Fair, you can sample food from other European countries and get to know all the teachers from the other countries. Please bring some Food or Drink from your country/region to share! e.g. cold dishes, baked goods, sweet treats (anything that can travel without refrigeration).
5 min presentation
Please check with your trainer if you are required to prepare a brief presentation. Usually, if you are bringing food for the European Food Fair, this is seen as a form of presenting about your country/region already. Your trainer may ask you to prepare a presentation as part of their course curriculum. If a presentation is requested, please make sure it is brief (5 min speaking time maximum) and please include a visual component (e.g. actual cultural object, photos or videos).
European Health Insurance Card
Please bring your European Health Insurance Card with you. In case you don’t have one, we would suggest that you obtain a travel insurance to cover you for medical emergencies.
In order to protect everyone’s health, we may be required to facilitate courses partially online instead of in-person for some or all participants. We will do this only where absolutely necessary. In order to participate in online sessions, we ask you to bring a device that allows you to attend an online video conference when you are in your accommodation. Having a smartphone will also make it easier to navigate your way through foreign cities.
For courses that involve ICT, educational apps and Technology, we ask participants to bring their own lap-tops. Not all computers work the same, so it is best to use the same computer that you will also use after the course is over. Smartphones and Tablets are not always sufficient. If you are not sure if you need to bring a laptop, please contact your trainer. Before traveling, please make sure that you have saved all your important data on an external hard drive or cloud drive for safekeeping.
UK plug adapter
Sockets and plugs for electricity are different to those in mainland Europe. Please bring a plug adaptor
If you have any, please bring them with you.
Clothing for Irish weather
Ireland has a temperate oceanic climate. In summer, day time temperatures usually range between 15 to 25 degrees. In winter, temperatures are often around 5 degrees and it is very windy. While rainfall is usually short-lived, it can occur frequently. Please pack your luggage accordingly. Make sure you can layer up or down: Consider warm jumpers, jackets and rain gear.
For weeks where we have sufficient numbers of participants, we are offering Irish Dancing classes, where you can practice a number of traditional Irish dances. So don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes.
To prevent the spread of infectious diseases, we are implementing a number of precautious measures at our training venue. During the training courses, we will ask you to follow these measures. Measures include:
- Frequent sanitation of hands (e.g. when entering the classroom, before eating)
- Frequent airing of rooms and opening of windows and/or use of air purifiers.
Wearing a facemask during class is no longer a default requirement, however we nevertheless request participants who are sneezing or coughing to wear a facemask during class. If sneezing or coughing are persistent and/or if a participant develops a fever or other sign of illness, we will ask them to leave the training venue and to attend the course via video-link.
- Participants who are not willing to comply with the measurements will be asked to leave the training venue.
Declaration of Health
When arriving at the course venue, we will ask you to sign a declaration to confirm that you are free of any infectious diseases including Covid-19 and that you are fit to attend the walking tour through Dublin, the Irish dancing classes and the Saturday excursion. This is part of our Health and Safety procedure.
