The Erasmus in Schools project gives a chance to visit Finnish comprehensive schools (grades 1-9) and upper secondary schools (high schools/vocational schools). School visitors can work as teacher's helper, carry out a project with the class, give a lecture on a certain topic etc.- depending on what the student and, on the other hand, the teacher/school wants. And in addition to language lessons school visits can be carried out in other classes too - in subjects such as history, geography, sports, arts, cooking, biology, religion and student counselling classes. Virtually with everything that has something to do with school life! Erasmus students can also take part in a theme day organised by the local school.
Students and volunteers will be able to express their wishes and tell about their special skills when they sign up for the program. The actual planning and implementation of the visit will be agreed between the visitor and the teacher/school. Every student and volunteer would participate in at least 2-3 classes once signed up for the program.
