TC4PI Introduction


According to the Guide for the development of language education policies in Europe, plurilingualism forms the basis of communication in Europe and provides a more concrete basis for democratic citizenship. Plurilingualism is viewed as a value and competence, that is, a means of communication and a common and diversified way of relating to the Other. The main reason for starting this project is the identification of a notable lack of clarity as to which competences are required for teachers in order to integrate an intercultural dimension in plurilingual education. This situation requires rethinking teacher education. There is an important visible lack of continuity among the different in lifelong training stages according to the lifelong training policy claimed by the European Commission: starting in pre-service teacher training (University stage) and continuing through in-service teacher training.The project has six main objectives:

ITo create a network of schools of similar characteristics for the exchange of best practices between teachers and management/leadership. This network will allow the analysis of the existing situation in schools, at the same time that promotes networking for communication and coordination. Besides, the network will provide researches with data for analyses and teachers with an environment for self-reflection and self-learning.

IITo research on competences. Analyze official documents on teachers multicultural competences.

IIITo make exchanges/job shadowing/observation period/team teaching by teachers employing an intercultural approach to plurilingual education.

IVTo create training courses, courses, seminars and training modules on the development of specific intercultural and plurilingual competences

VTo evaluate teachers´ didactic approaches and linguistic and intercultural competences.

VITo disseminate and exploit results/outputs of the project. Once the evaluation is accomplished, a Framework Document will be created, TC4PI.
