Estrategias para el éxito escolar en el ámbito europeo
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project we present has as its main aim to train our staff through a set of mobility activities all around Europe, which will enable us to learn and implement new working methods in already existing programmes in our school. On the other hand, within a globalised education context, it is essential to open the door to an internationalisation process, which is not entirely alien to our school, since we have been organising exchange programmes with France and Finland as well as cultural trips to the United Kingdom over the past few years. To do so, we need the support of the European Union. CONTEXT OF THE PROJECT Puçol Secondary School has started an improvement process through a series of actions, which have already been established as first priority in our School Education Project: Promoting the learning of foreign languages through the Multilingual Programme. Internationalisation of our school by getting in touch with various European schools (France, England, Finland and Sweden) to establish common projects and exchange of students. Taking part in national projects such as PROMECE (Projects to enhance the students' learning process with cooperative groups of state schools from different autonomous regions). Teacher training in ICT, in CLIL methodology, School Mediation and team coordination processes. Implementing Coexistence and Mediation actions to improve the students' relationships and self-confidence as well as the school's learning atmosphere. These strategies will thus lead towards academic achievement. TEACHER TRAINING strategies in the following aspects: Further learning of: ICT resources, CLIL methodology and foreign languages. Job shadowing in European schools that provides us with: - New formats of management and leadership in the context of management. - Dealing with the field of school coexistence regarding multicultural areas. - New working methods in the following crucial subjects: Language, Science, Technology, Computer Science and Mathematics. PARTICIPANTS A group of teachers from the Internationalisation and Mediation teams are coordinated by the School Management Team.

Computer Science teachers will deal with CLIL methodology. Members of the Management Team will conduct a job shadowing activity on methodological, organizational and attention to multicultural coexistence aspects in Finland, and on the curriculum and methodology applied to the aforementioned subjects in Sweden.
