Internationalisation at school: Toolbox for teachers

We need intercultural competences not only to understand people from different cultures, we also need them to overcome differences within our own culture. But how to include intercultural learning in any activity run at the school? Check the toolbox developed through the ‘Intercultural Learning for Pupils and Teachers’ project with a range of activities aimed at developing the intercultural learning competences of teachers and students.

“internationalisation is the intentional and transformative process of including international, intercultural and global dimensions in all aspects of school life – through a whole school approach – in order to enhance the quality of education for all pupils, teachers and staff and to make a meaningful contribution to society”

Mattia Baiutti. Intercultura Assessment Protocol (2019)


In our increasingly multicultural society Intercultural Learning becomes more important every day. We need to provide teachers and their students with relevant competences in order to be active in school and society.

Building on these needs the European Federation for Intercultural Learning (EFIL) is providing resources to promote internationalisation of schools and enhance intercultural competence of secondary school pupils and school staff, through a whole school approach and cooperation with non formal education providers. 

The resources showcased on this website have been developed thanks to the Erasmus+ funded projects ‘Intercultural Learning for pupils and teachers’ and ‘Expanding Learning Mobility’ funded by Erasmus+.
