PROJECT TITLE. Teacher training for the conversion of our institution in central curricular specialization in multilingualism and transnational mobility. PROJECT CONTEXT. The IES Clara Campoamor is a public center of Secondary Education and Baccalaureate, consisting of 558 students and 45 teachers in La Solana (16,700), province of Ciudad Real, Castilla-La Mancha (Spain). We started in 2007-2008, starting from very high rates of dropout. Since then we undertook a strategic policy based on international education, with two axes: the bilingual sections in English at ESO and participation in European mobility programs and exchange. This has yielded positive results as we have gone around the situation by increasing the motivation and expectations of our students towards learning and school performance. Since the 2013-2014 academic year we have incorporated the book and digital learning platforms under the regional project "Digital Backpack". The new fundamental law governing education in our country gives us the opportunity to become Specialization Curriculum Centre on Multilingualism, transnational mobility and counseling and training of teachers and the administration. Growing up in this goal is the major objective of this project. NUMBER AND PROFILE OF PARTICIPANTS.

All participants are teaching career officials with final destination in our center, several years of experience and an extensive and successful in their fields of knowledge (scientific publications, presentations, etc.) curriculum.
