Start date: Aug 18, 2014, End date: Aug 17, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In developing the project, we have considered the Europe 2020 and ET 2020 strategic goals set for the member states: fostering interchange, cooperation and mobility of educational and training systems, teacher training with common characteristics across the EU, exceeding state borders and language barriers, so that teachers have a full range of knowledge, attitudes and pedagogic skills to help young people showcase their full potential. Based on these aspects, we have identified the following needs for our institution: 1. low quality management, both in the classroom and at the school unit level; 2. predominant use of traditional methods in teaching, learning and assessment, inappropriate for the new curriculum; 3. low use of ICT in various disciplines; 4. limited language skills of teachers in foreign languages; 5. low intercultural skills of teachers and the adoption of appropriate behavior in this respect; The purpose of this project is to facilitate the development of skills for the eight teachers in our school in order to improve the quality of school management, to promote creativity, linguistic diversity and the development of ICT resources, to improve quality in all sectors of education, to encourage the efficient use of results, innovative products and processes through the exchange of good practices in education.
