Developing your school with EU programme support. A conference for school leaders

Developing your school with EU programme support. A conference for school leaders

Friday, October 11, 2013 (All day) - Saturday, October 12, 2013 (All day)
Vilnius, Lithuania

The European Commission and the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council jointly organised this conference for school leaders to discuss how schools can best benefit from European co-operation by making it part of their school development strategy.

Conference participants explored the role of school leaders in European school co-operation and ways in which EU programmes such as Comenius can support schools in developing an international strategy. They also looked at how EU-supported projects and eTwinning can effectively contribute to tackling current challenges for schools.

Attendance to this event was by invitation only, and most participants were school leaders with an experience in Comenius partnerships or eTwinning.

In thematic workshops participants looked at the possibilities for schools to work together with partners in Europe as part of their own strategic development. In this context, they focussed on the role of the school leader, teachers’ professional development, motivating pupils and the profile and community links of schools.

12 Comenius projects presented themselves in an exhibition at the conference, also serving as examples in workshop discussions.
