This mobility project can comprise one or more of the following activities:
These activities are also an opportunity for teachers to gain competences in addressing the needs of pupils with disadvantaged backgrounds. Given the current context concerning young migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, particular attention will be also given to support projects that train teachers in such areas as training refugee children, intercultural classrooms, teaching pupils in their second language, classroom tolerance and diversity.
In Key Action 1 for schools, local and regional school authorities (i.e. a College) and school coordination bodies can act as consortium coordinators and submit an application on behalf of a number of schools. A school coordination body is an organisation (not a school) that has a clear organisational link to the running or management of those schools involved in the consortium partnership in a supervisory, coordinating, administrative support role. This could include:
Please note that schools cannot act as consortium coordinators on behalf of other schools. The consortium approach is intended to relieve schools of the administrative burden and make the application process easier. The school coordinating body is responsible for the management, budgeting and reporting related to the project application. Staff from the coordinating organisation are not eligible to undertake any mobility activities; these are limited to staff at the schools involved in the partnership.
