    From Concept to Practice
    How does the Phorms concept impact the daily work we do, and how might our understanding of this concept influence the way we operate in our schools?   
    This workshop explores the various perspectives and expectations surrounding Phorms employees each day and focuses on key issues affecting English and German staff members. Particularly, how can we manage the relationship between the wealth of knowledge and experience an international team brings and balance this with our mission towards the success of the Phorms bilingual concept.
