Colegio Hernández S.L with the application for the KA1 Erasmus + project: "Education in the 21st century: CreaTICvity + Innovation + Quality = Key of Future" pretends to face the current training needs of its teaching staff. Our European Development Plan has been designed after a SWOT analysis and taking into account the objectives of the growth strategy of the EU 2020 . As stated in the title of our project, we firmly believe that there are some key factors that will determine the best educational systems in the future: the use of ICT as tools for learning, fostering creativity at all levels, implementation of innovative teaching methods and adoption of quality management systems. All these factors are the keys that will contribute to the successful future life of our studentsTherefore the main areas for improvement in our European Development Plan are the following:- Implementation of new teaching methods, development of ICT tools and resources.- Implementation of a multilingual learning program which focuses on the content and language integrated learning and enables our students to learn within a European dimension.- Improvement of quality management policy in order to meet the demands of the families and meet the educational needs of all our students.We believe that Information and Community Technologies are the basic tools for cooperation , as well as fundamental instruments to create open educational resources which will promote the acquisition of key competencies as promoted in the European strategy "Rethinking Education" (2012 ). The adoption of new methodologies and the implementation of ICT in all areas, will determine the quality schools in the future and also those that will meet the demands of the labor market in the 21st century. Concepts such as Innovation and internationalization must be at the core of all educational projects. We are willing to accept these challenges but also aware that we need to attend to several continuous professional development courses , exchange best practices with other European colleagues and take part in jobshadowing experiences, in order to improve our training and learn from other peer. Therefore, we have selected the courses and the jobshadowing experiences that will definitely help us to meet the planned objectives and to move towards the school that we want.In the project “Education in the 21st century: CreaTICvity + Innovation + Quality = Key of Future" , aspects such as evaluation, dissemination of results and impact on all sectors at local, regional, national and international level, will certainly play a major role.The added European value of this project are the strategic partnerships and international Networks that will arise during the mobility periods. All these will contribute to the internationalization of our organization.
