Different countries, different education systems

In Europe, most countries have implemented different education systems for teachers and for pupils.

For example, in the Netherlands and Italy, the school heads have a high level autonomy. In France and Germany local authorities are very influential with regards to the curriculum of the school.

The project will provide:

  • An overview of the current presence of intercultural learning in secondary school teacher’s education and continuing professional development
  • A series of recommendations to Ministries of Education, Universities and Headmasters on how to include intercultural learning in secondary school teachers’ education and continuing professional development
  • An overview of the current promotion and assessment of intercultural competences in upper secondary schools around Europe and methods for the recognition of mobility periods
  • A series of recommendations to Ministry of Education and Headmasters on how to include intercultural learning in secondary schools’ curricula and recognize the long-term mobility experiences as part of the academic path of secondary school students.

The recommendations will be available in mid 2018
