The Bridge re-boot camp comprises two specifically-designed courses with carefully thought-out programme that takes into account many of the aspects mentioned above, including yoga, meditation, fresh vegetarian food, active workshops and practical evening activities.
The first – ´reboot´ camp is designed to fill you with energy and creative ideas so that you are ready to kick start the new school year with renewed enthusiasm and vigour. Reboot course is for all teachers and will be led by Mike Shreeve. Secound course is dedicated to 21st century skills focusing on developing the teacher’s ability to manage the learning context within the reality of the modern primary school classroom. This course is for primary school teachers and will be led by Kevin Byrne.
Mike Shreeve has taught in state schools, language schools and management academies. He has also worked in a business and professional context. The connecting principle is an interest in people and their psychology.
He has taught for the last few years in Pilgrims summer teacher training school the coaching with NLP course and teaching “difficult learners”.
He has recently been involved in a large teaching project to enhance coaching and feedback skills to Ethiopian teachers- a welcome return to a country he worked in when qualifying as a teacher. Outside of this he coaches individuals (mainly teachers, business owners and professionals) and is involved in several education projects. Until recently he has been a school governor.
Outside of professional life, Mike lives in Brighton and enjoys walking and contemplating the South Downs and is (healthily) obsessed with playing tennis.
He has been a speaking examiner (SE) for Cambridge Assessment (Starters to Flyers; A1 to C2 levels) since 1999 (but definitely prefers the teaching – and happily retired as an interlocutor in 2019). He has worked with Pilgrims Young Learners since 2000 as a teacher, AD TEFL and as an assistant academic manager. He has also worked as activities manager/photographer/trainer for Pilgrims Teacher Training.
His passions include: his three wonderful children, SLA, socializing, studying photography (BA Hons), art, Netflix, comics, short stories (also trying to learn how to write them), TED.com, and learning about learning, as well as making photography books too! He has run more than ten specialized photography groups on Flickr for over a decade.
He can also be found just staring aimlessly out into space from time to time enjoying the wind, enjoying the light, and remembering how lucky he is.
