Background Our teacher, Per Øyvind Torvik, has established a link between Meråker High School and NAZ Eizenerz. We have now decided that we will go further with this through a mobility project. Both institutions are central in developing cross-country skiers and biathlon athletes in our respective countries. This is the background for the two schools wish to share knowledge and experiences about teaching- and training methods through job shadowing and teaching assignments. We also want through The Erasmus+ project to raise the quality of our education, by improving the quality of the teachers/coaches and by sharing knowledge of both top-level institutions. Meråker High School has strong partners such as the Norwegian Ski Federation, Biathlon Federation and Olympiatoppen (responsible for training Norwegian elite sport). Objectives of our project Through this project, Meråker High School wishes to: 1. Develop competence to our teachers and trainers to improve training and teaching methods. 2. Develop the management's leader skills and competence about dual-career*, dropouts, culture and language. 3. Use relevant teaching and training methods and experience from this project in our development plan. 4. Learn how our partner school is working with dropouts and dual-career. 5. Get some experience from abroad to use in our work to establish international studies in sports at both high school and college. 6. After finishing Erasmus + mobility project, we will see if there is a basis for establishing strategic partnership with NAZ Eisenerz.
