"INNOVATING AND EUROPEANISING TO PREVENT SCHOOL LEAVING IN ADULT LEARNERS"Official Language Schools are public institutions for adults of non-compulsory education, therefore the students who become unmotivated are easily deterred from learning languages.The main objective of our project is to fight this school leaving by having a more attractive, interactive and motivating teaching. To do so, it seems essential to acquire new technological approaches, find innovative techniques and activities, and incorporate new technologies even more, both inside and outside the classroom, to better reach all our students and offer them a European and inclusive perspective.In this context, nine experienced teachers of four different departments (German, Spanish for foreigners, French and English) will go to six European countries, where they will be trained in innovative teaching and ICT applied to the teaching of languages to adults. In this organized courses the learner-teacher is European, so the created environment will favour synergies and future partnerships or cooperations.This project is collaborative. Initially, the training was centralized on two members of the Management team, who attended various seminars on Erasmus +. Hereafter, all the information was shared with all the teachers to involve most of them and of the departments. This collaborative method will be implemented by in-person meetings and by using different digital tools like the school’s and the Regional Ministry’s web pages, School Education Gateway, eTwinining , EPALE, Onedrive, Wordpress, INTEF and Erasmusintern.With this sustainable project the school will be able to have more motivated, implicated and integrated teachers and students with a European vision. By training the teachers, the students will be responsible of their learning process and have the leading role in it.It is expected that this will reduce the percentage of school leavers, thus achieving the main objective of this project.Besides the impact on our school, it will also have a local, regional and national one.A long term benefit is to consolidate our institution as a European reference centre in the teaching of languages to adults, highlighted by its good practice and the involvement of the whole educational community in the teaching-learning process. We would also like to offer our institutions as host school for European teachers on platforms such as EPALE or Erasmusintern to develop future projects.
