The design of the project has evolved along our meetings as a result of the addition of all the participants’ experiences and contributions, from both those who had a previous experience in European projects and those who faced such a project for the first time.•Cooperation: It must be noted, then that every step taken has been the result of a collaborative effort and not of any type of imposition.•Work distribution: although every participant has contributed ideas in the different parts of the projects, we made an initial distribution of work to allow us to analyze more calmly and thoroughly our school’s situation, necessities and goals in relation to each part of the project.•Assessment: our weekly meetings have allowed us to share and discuss the work carried out by the different groups along the week, to connect all the items analyzed and our proposals and, ultimately, to assess our own working processEXPECTED RESULTS, BENEFITS AND IMPACT The Project aims at achieve short, medium and long term benefits.In the first place, in the sort-term, we seek to improve our teacher’s linguistic and teaching competence as well a greater implication on their part when developing projects. Our most important medium-term objectives, on the other hand, are to extend the school’s CLIL offer, broaden the presence of our institution in Europe, increase our teaching staff’s sense of fulfilment and to increase our capacity to elicit changes in our school.Finally, in the long-term, we expect to broaden and improve our educational offer and the creation of a favourable environment to open up Europe to the whole of our educational community.To assess the impact of our project, we will resort to different tools, such as questionnaires, assessment sheets and statistics, which will allow us to verify and quantify the results obtained.
