I get it, you also want to know what other people think of the training and coaching I offer.
Not a problem! Below you can find various testimonials of both teachers and schools who I have collaborated with.
On online training and support
The CLIL Community is almost too good to be true!
The coaching sessions got me inspired and back on track with my energy levels in terms of CLIL
So, from my perspective, and in my particular case, there's nothing missing from your platform and efforts; I think they are fantastic.
Patrick is a born presenter and teacher. He is always open to various questions and ready to support every student.
I strongly advise to take this course to everybody who interested in CLIL and wants to be engaged in activities connected with CLIL implementation.
Because of Patrick's help, I became much more confident in teaching CLIL and apply it more often than I used to (I even share CLIL ideas with my colleagues now).
I am pleased to write this testimonial about the CLIL coaching training given by Patrick de Boer. I recently had the pleasure of participating in one-on-one training sessions with Patrick.
Patrick's expertise and experience as a CLIL coach were evident from the very beginning. His approach to coaching was engaging, informative, and tailored specifically to my needs and goals. Throughout the training, he provided me with practical strategies for motivating and engaging reluctant or resistant teachers, which was particularly useful.
He took the time to understand my unique challenges and provided me with constructive suggestions for how to enhance my coaching skills. Thanks to his expert coaching, I now feel more confident and equipped to coach my colleagues effectively.
Overall, I would highly recommend Patrick de Boer's CLIL coaching training to anyone looking to develop their coaching skills. Patrick's dedication, passion, and expertise make him an exceptional coach, and his training is a must for anyone looking to succeed in the field of CLIL coaching. Thank you, Patrick, for an outstanding training experience!
On (online) workshops
On team training
Patrick gave a CLIL course at our school which turned out to be a great match for us. Patrick taught very professionally, was flexible, and easily managed to adapt to a rather diverse group of teachers in terms of background in the area of CLIL. The workshop was very useful to us.
This was the first training in 10 years that was actually useful for me!
After our positive experiences with our colleagues from the bilingual havo and vwo department in working with Patrick, he has hosted a complete CLIL training for about 20 teachers that do not work in bilingual education.
CLIL has made us more aware of the language present in our content. Patrick let us experience engaging activities that we could implement in our lessons.
The best experience for me as a school leader was to see this large group of teachers entirely focused on implementing all of the activities.
We had Patrick do both a workshop and a feedback session after lesson visits. Both were highly appreciated but it was the personal feedback on their lessons colleagues appreciated most in particular because of Patrick’s down-to-earth approach and extremely helpful tips and tops. We’ll definitely invite him again.
Patrick has helped us a lot with developing our bilingual policy document. During his workshop, a lot of teachers could share experiences and provide both input and ideas for the new policy. It was a very engaging workshop during which Patrick got everyone to participate with a lot of enthusiasm!
The webinar was great! Very informative and to the point. One of the major issues is precisely the planning.
You’re a genius in holding an engaging and interactive online webinar!
Back in time, I used to take longer on making activities from scratch. After this webinar I 've noticed that the simple is best when it comes to activities
Your presentation is really amazing! You give me a lot of ideas how to improve students language without letting them know about it 🙂 Thank you so much!
The webinar is very useful and interactive. Thank you for your dedication.
I enjoyed this webinar because now I am more conscious about making lesson objectives that are concise and can be checked easily at the end of the lessons. This was sooooo worth my time. Thanks once again Patrick.
