Comenius partnerships - helping schools team up across Europe

May 03, 2012 to May 04, 2012
The European Commission organised this conference dedicated to Comenius school partnerships. The aims are to discuss what makes cross-border co-operation between schools successful and what creates lasting impacts, to explore the links between school projects and wider school policy developments and to give participants an opportunity to forge new networks for future co-operation.

Participants came from ongoing school partnerships as well as national and European authorities and associations involved in the making and shaping of school policy.
Four thematic workshops looked at school co-operation in the light of current policy issues such as improving learning environments, teachers' competences, inclusive education and the internationalisation of schools.
