'By learning in Europe, we step ahead' is the follow up project to 'Keramka learns in Europe', which has been prepared by the implementation team and school staff . Its main aim is to increase teachers' language, pedagogical and professional skills and competences. The organisation has very limited experiences with EU grants funded by Erasmus + (previous LLP) , we are at the first fase; planning, managing and taking part in the firs few courses - initially the teachers and later the learners joining in strategic partnerships. The school has determined the following objectives:1) improve language skills of the teaching staff and management2) develop and enrich didactic skills and enhance the attractiveness of teaching, introduce alternative methods, especially in foreign languages3) increase internationalisation of the school and its involvement in Erasmus +, especially in partnerships4) introduce EU's offer in the field of education to learners, parents and the public5) approach the education system and culture of the visited countries to learners and other teachers6) highlight the role of lifelong learning.Four staff trainings are planned in four European countries, three of them are held in English (one also including Spanish) one in Russian language. Courses are divided into two types. The first consists of two language courses (English and Russian) for management and a studying teacher. B1 level, willingness to assist the organisation in school and extracurricular activities and interest in deepening their own qualification played the significant role in the participants' selection. The second group 2 'Job Shadwings' are prepared for foreign language teachers - English (Spanish) and focuses on improvement and development of language and teaching skills. The organisation set up the implementation team which is composed of three people: the headmaster, the coordinator and the head of foreign language department. During the project planning, a lot of attention was dedicated to the choice of courses and their participants, in details to the communication with the NA, course providers, paerner schools, the establishment. If the funding is approved, the coordinator will prepare the plan of activities for each year. According to the plan the management will make school education mobility agreement with the participants, for 'Job Shaowing' it is also a document 'Garantee of Quality', practical and logistic matters and evaluation. After arriving from a mobility, the participant will be asked to write a report, prepare a presentation for learners, all the materials for a subject comittee and complete an evaluation questionnaire. The public, learners, parents and school staff will be regularly informed not only by local media but also in other public relation activities like exhibitions or doors open days. It is believed that the project will help all the participants to improve their pedagogical and language skills and competences which will have positive impact on learners´motivation, study results as well as students' learning potential will be succesfully fulfilled.It is hoped that all the activities will lead to internationalisation of the school, its cooperation with foreign education organisations and high involvement in strategic partnerships for all fields of study including apprenticeship. Present and future learners are eager to work and study abroad. The European Union with its tools like Europass will be shown as the institution which is able to open labour market within Europe and have a big influence on school leavers' future career.
