Conference The Sky is the Limit

We are excited to invite you to the conference ‘The Sky is the Limit,
The Roadmap to Success in English’!

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

The Roadmap to Success in English

February 9th, 2023 in Utrecht (NDC Den Hommel)

Six primary and secondary schools from Denmark, Finland, and The Netherlands joined forces with ETS, Educational Testing Service (Princeton, USA) and Goal Testing to excel in English language teaching and to change the ways we think about the role of assessment in education.

During this conference, we will take you with us on our journey highlighting the lessons learned within two years of collaboration as well as sharing best practices, ideas, resources, and key takeaways from the Erasmus+ project iBUILD IT. Additionally, the CED Groep, in cooperation with Goal Testing, will introduce an innovative approach to English language teaching in primary and secondary education: Rocket with English!

The conference is open to all and provides a rich program of professional development for English teachers in primary and secondary education, heads of language departments, school directors, academic managers, teacher trainers, researchers, and teacher training academy students alike.
