Swedish Literature Project

University of Linkoping

The University of Chester, Faculty of Education, has a long and fruitful working relationship with Link√∂ping University. The Faculty of Teacher Education at Link√∂ping is currently the highest rated in Sweden, and we are delighted to be extending our work with them through our Chester based Youth Literature project.  This will enable the best of their teacher education students, with expertise in mythology and a passion for literature,  to spend two weeks with us to enrich their understanding of learning and teaching in English.

32 students from Sweden came this year from the 26th October until 8th November 2014. After a week in the university receiving theoretical and pedagogical input they spent a week in partner schools across the region supporting teaching staff and learning practically about the British school system. Students reported learning a great deal about the schools they visited and felt they gained good ideas that would influence their practice in Sweden.
