CONTEXT/BACKGROUND OF PROJECT
"Our School - My Future" is an ESL project initiated within the framework of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for School Education, aiming at achieving cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices between schools from different countries across Europe.
ESL is typically caused by a cumulative process of disengagement as a result of personal, social, economic, geographical, education or family-related reasons. Part of the problem can also be attributed to lack of support and guidance, disengagement from schooling, and secondary-level curricula which too often do not offer enough options for varied courses, alternative teaching pedagogies, experiential and other hands-on learning opportunities or sufficient flexibility and support. Within this framework, the project is designed to focus mainly on in-schools ESL influencing factors such as teaching methods and curricular issues, positive/negative school climate, and the parents’ role as a contributing factor to ESL.
