The GaR-project "Europaprofil" follows the ongoing project "Rotenbühl international". The planned arrangements follow the standards of the European development plan of the GaR to become a "Europaschule". Therefore it is our focal concern to strengthen the international focus of the school by initiating international projects and to establish firmly the exchange with partner schools in England, Spain, France and Finland. Accompanied by this, the quality of education is increased through specially trained teachers and the European orientation of this qualification strategy. Through experience exchange and impressions, teachers should be motivated to keep in touch with our partners, initiate further projects and support ongoing ones. The whole school community therefore makes a contribution to an open-minded education thus facilitating the further consolidation of Europe.The selection if arrangements is closely connected to the current demand within the framework of ongoing or future EU-projects and the perspective necessity to fulfill certain operations within the scope of our systemic school development process.Concrete goals of the project "Europaschule" on a content level are the reinforcement of language expertise and intercultural communication as well as the development and expansion of new teaching methods in foreign language teaching using new media (web based lesson projects). Our focus hereby lies on the languages French and Spanish. Furthermore, we are aiming at continually improving our skills in the area of project management and leadership. In order to support our web-based lesson activities and to prepare a project on work- and study-orientation (International Career Center ICC), this area of competence will be considered.There are six measures in the project "Europaprofil" which are designed to qualify. In two courses regarding the teaching of natural or social science subjects in a foreign language (French or Spanish) and one course regarding a modern approach of foreign language teaching (French), we familiarize our teachers with the latest developments and insights. With another language course teachers can improve their language proficiency and prepare teaching bilingually. One teacher does further studies in web-based lessons to facilitate the usage of modern media at the GaR and to support.Lastly, two teachers will attend a workshop regarding project management of international projects. They thereby contribute to the professionalization of project management and evaluation of international projects. In doing this, we create a broad basis of personnel for project work.Consequently the GaR-project “Europaprofil” is another important component of our school's development – in addition to and support of our trending work in the project “Unterrichtsentwicklung” (lesson development) – towards “Europaschule GaR”.
