Our school seeks to improve the quality of teaching, study and learning, as well as optimize the organization of the work at the center and classroom level, in order to obtain results in line with what is expected of the current school. We also want to achieve a higher level of basic general skills, and the technological implantation in particular, as well as to promote multilingualism. In recent years our center has participated in some European projects, which have been a screening of the school both domestically and at the social level.

Participation in this transnational projects is an aspect which our school gives great importance, and that allows us to expand the European dimension and cooperation with other schools, getting contact with innovative educational practices and organizational methods in different countries.

The present project was born in our school to answer several concerns We mainly want Erasmus+ projects to reach as many students, teachers, families and the social environment as possible. For this, we want most of the activities to be developed, to a large extent, in the students’ own classrooms and with their regular teaching staff. We can achieve this by introducing Project Based Learning; method in which enough teachers have been preparing these last years. In this way we can also give continuity to this preparation of teachers and apply innovative methods in our school.

By having this teacher training, we also have the capacity to guide and help any of the other participating schools that need it. On the other hand, the topic of intangible cultural heritage, we think is excellent to address common problems in all schools and countries: family relationships, sedentary lifestyle, leisure time, knowledge of one’s cultural identity, …

In our school, the Erasmus+ group consists of between 12 and 14 teachers, most of them with wide experience in European projects, as well as a variable number of students. Of course we have the collaboration of the management team. For this project we will form a working group with shared tasks: the general coordinator of the project, the coordinator for our school, a responsible for relations and communication, an ICT responsible, a coordinator for each activity. Being coordinated and in continuous communication, if there were any problem with any of the responsible persons, it would be easy for one of the others to assume his functions or for another teacher of the Erasmus+ group to join the coordination tasks.
