Heading Towards a Plurilingual Education  for All” aims to bring about a better educational opportunity in Escola Túrbula for disadvantaged and diverse students from the Sant Adrià de Besòs area. Having a plurilingual school in such an urban area is so beneficial to the livelihoods of the youth as it opens the door to better opportunities to their future. We hope to make three visits to schools in Finland, The Netherlands and Ireland with the hopes of gaining knowledge of different teaching approaches so as to incorporate them into our school and eventually to the surrounding schools and universities. We hope to also share our ways of teaching to each school that we visit. We would like to send nine teachers in total (three from Preschool, three from Primary and three from Secondary), one teacher from each level will travel to one target country.

Activities which we hope to achieve whilst on these trips are:
- observation (CLIL lessons taught through English, tandem teaching, the incorporation of two languages e.g. English and Irish)
- identifying strategies and methodologies of different skills
- observe how special needs students and newcomers are integrated into the school and how they are taught
- sharing the practices that we have learnt along the way
Participants after completing this job-shadowing project will be able to:
- expand and improve their methodological skills
- gain the resources needed to reflect upon and improve their classroom strategies
- improve their linguistic competence in English
- be more equipped when dealing with newcomers and special needs students
We hope to benefit from this job-shadowing project by being able to accommodate better for our students’ needs and help the local  schools network and higher educational institutions to learn from our experiences from visiting our three partner schools.

El nostre projecte Erasmus+ KA1

El passat juny 2016 ens van concedir el projecte Erasmus+ KA1 que havíem presentat a la Comissió Europea el febrer de 2016.

El nostre projecte s’anomena “Heading Towards a Plurilingual Education for All” i es durà a terme durant el curs escolar 2016-2017.

Quins són els objectius del nostre projecte?

We feel the need to undergo a job-shadowing project because our institution has been carrying out CLIL projects since 2007 and recognised projects since 2009. We have a long tradition and expertise in this field because we would like to share and compare with other schools in Europe which work in the same line. In this way we will be able to identify new or different strategies or methodologies that will enrich our daily practice and, consequently, our students performance.
By carrying out this project we would like to:
- observe classes in schools that teach through the medium of two languages
- observe classes in which content subjects (Science, Arts and Crafts and Music) are taught through English
- observe CLIL lessons taught by a team of two teachers (tandem teaching)
- identify the strategies and methodologies that CLIL teachers in other schools in Europe deploy
- observe how special needs students and newcomers are integrated and taught in CLIL lessons (ie. policies of inclusion)
- compare the situation of two languages coexisting together in schools (English and Irish in Ireland; English and Dutch in the Netherlands; Finnish and English in Finland; and Catalan and Spanish and English in our case) and analyse how these languages are learnt and their role in the school and at home
- share our good practices with other schools in Europe which work in the same line as ours so they can also learn from our experience by sharing, comparing and analysing our daily practices.
After a long journey of CLIL training, CLIL implementation and reflection in our lessons, we feel the need to learn from other school which work in the same line as ours in order to analyse, compare and reflect upon our good practices, with the ultimate goal to improve our teaching practice and, consequently, our students’ performance.
