The project affects three schools with different socio-cultural contexts: a Spanish school situated at the outskirts of a city which receives an imprtant number of pupils from the surrounding rural area; a British school located in a small town with an important catchment rural area; and an Italian school situated in the urban center of a large city.The objectives of the project are: to improve teaching skills in foreign languages; to develop new organisational strategies that promote interaction and integration among students; and to introduce teachers and pupils in an international socio-cultural educational and learning reality.There will be eight participant teachers. The candidates´profile, although it is open, is mainly aimed to current and future participants in the bi-lingual programme developed in our school.Activities are aimed to foster teacher training in specialised institutions; to develop a deeper knowledge of other educational systems and methodologies through jobshadowing and teaching in our partners´ schools; and to promote collaborative learning and group working of the participants in the projects by preparing the mobilities, revising the results and introducing the new practices to the bi-lingual programme of our school. To top it all off, the experiences and the outcomes of the project will be shared by teachers of other schools through different specialised activities and institutions (Local Teacher Training Center, Regional Teacher Language Training Institution, Training Activity School 4 School).METHODOLOGYWe expect the project to have some very positive results for our school as well as the participant teachers. It improves teachers´ language skills; it promotes the use of new methodologies and practices both in teaching and in group and class organisation; it encourages the use of a specific vocabulary in CLIL subjects, taught in English.All these improvements will result in a more professional and specialised work environment for teaching in our CLIL programme. This will have a substantial positive impact in the area where our school is located; it will make possible the successful development of a new learning model which prepares our pupils for an increasingly globalised social reality, both in their education and later their professional careers.These are the two main profits that we expect to achieve in a near future: An increasingly specialised teacher training in CLIL; and the introduction of pupils in a completely international learning and professional model, in addition to the development of a specialised learning in our school.
