School-teacher Professionalisation: Intercultural Resources and Languages
Professionnalisation des enseignants du 1er degré : ressources interculturelles et langues
The European Commission report “Supporting teacher competence development”, published in July 2013, makes primary school teacher training a key priority for Europe’s educational policy. Co-funded by the European Commission within the Erasmus+ programme, the SPIRAL project aims to meet this priority through a collaborative project undertaken by universities and public bodies across five different European countries. The project partners, all experts in teacher training, language teaching methods, and curriculum reform, have committed to carry out a strategic partnership for Higher Education that will lend an important role to innovative practices. This project, launched in September 2015, will take place over three years.
SPIRAL aims to improve the quality of training programmes for future primary school teachers through a common reference framework containing evaluation grids, a quality charter, a competence framework, skill cards as well as a mobility guide, all compatible with respective European national teaching systems.
