    The five-day trip is designed to give British schoolteachers an opportunity to increase knowledge of Poland’s history and geography, and to discover its current economic and social situation. The programme of the trip will focus on topics such as Polish experience during the Second World War, Poland during the Cold War and after the political changes of 1989. The history of the post-1989 transformation and developments after EU accession in 2004 will also be highlighted.

     

    Over the centuries, Poland has played an important role in many of Europe’s most important movements and historical events, from the Christianisation of Europe to the fall of communism in the Eastern Bloc. We hope that, with Poland’s role in shaping the political and economic landscape in Europe, increased knowledge of this country will be of great interest to British teachers of history, geography, citizenship and their students.

     

    The funding will cover the cost of return travel from London to Warsaw as well as accommodation and cost of travel within Poland. The programme will be conducted in English. Participants are responsible for arranging their own health and travel insurance for the duration of the stay in Poland.

     

    Please apply by using the application form which can be downloaded from here and return the scan of the signed document in the .pdf format to the Embassy of Poland by e-mailing london.press@msz.gov.pl.

     

    Deadline for submitting the applications is 21 June 2019.

     

    Please note that a limited number of places is available.
