This means that the school has a generally very strong awareness of its international work as a key tool for school development.
International work is carried out on a regularly basis in the school, but it not yet fully recognised as an ordinary activity of the school. The school is fully aligned to the objectives of the local school authority when it comes to international work. The school knows that an international strategy of the municipality exists but is not aware of its details.
This means that the capacity of the school of planning and setting priorities in its international work is not yet sufficiently developed.
Development activities are sometimes planned on the basis of previously identified needs of the staff and pupils. The school operates following a plan based on collective needs and does not leave space for spontaneous activities or individual interests. The school has a leadership which is informed about the activities/projects and monitors adequately the processes.
The capacity of the school of planning and setting priorities in its international work is not yet sufficiently developed.
The projects involve only a small number of staff members and therefore the impact of the activities on the organisation as a whole will be modest.If only one person coordinates all the international activities, decisions might be quicker but it might prove difficult to have a stronger impact and engagement at school level on a wider variety of activities.The time dedicated by the person/team in charge of international activities is little and/or it made on a voluntary basis and therefore continuity might not be always granted.
