The teachers at Europass have been able to improve their professional skills in various fields thanks to different Erasmus projects:
Thanks to the Erasmus+ accreditation won in 2021 (2021-1-IT02-KA121-ADU-000006818), many teachers embarked on individual mobility to attend professional development courses or engage in job shadowing in partner schools.
Erasmus KA1 funds were also used to bring expert trainers from abroad to conduct seminars for Europass school teachers.

Thanks to the Erasmus+ Digitise – Toolkit for 50+ project (2021-1-RO01-KA220-000034802), our teachers developed their digital skills, allowing them to offer more interactive and effective lessons. They participated in training sessions on digital tools in Berlin, Cluj-Napoca, and Thessaloniki.
Through the Erasmus+ Creativity for Innovation project, our teachers learned innovative and creative methods for teaching foreign languages to adults. In particular, two teachers attented training on the Callan method in Zagreb (Croatia) and on storytelling in Amsterdam (Netherlands).
