WHAT IS A COMENIUS PROJECT? Multilateral Comenius school partnerships are cross-curricular projects that involve at least three schools or colleges from at least three European countries. They enable staff and students to work together with partners in other Comenius eligible countries for the duration of the two year partnership. In addition to learning more about other cultures and gaining an insight into other teaching practices, participating staff report increased enthusiasm and motivation from colleagues and children alike, often resulting in raised standards across the curriculum. The benefits to the school include valuable opportunities for staff and students to work together, develop focused approaches to problem-solving, and build pedagogical programmes. Pupils and students also have the possibility of visiting their partner institutions through the funding available.
