This means that the school is aware of the importance of international activities but does not yet fully exploit its potential in relation to school development.
International work is approached as additional to the ordinary schoolwork.The school is carrying out its international work mostly following the objectives of the local school authorities. The school should increase the knowledge about the international strategy of the municipality.
This means that the school recognises the importance of planning, evaluating and setting priorities of its international work but there is space for improvement.
The school sometimes plans on the basis of the needs of the staff and pupils. The school does not plan but reacts to emerging opportunities or follows individual interests of the staff. The processes pertaining new international activities have to be improved in terms of visibility and transparency. The school shares all activities across its main components (teachers/students/parents). International partners are selected accidentally without following any qualitative criteria.
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.The international activities are a shared responsibility in the school and this ensures a more collegial approach and facilitate the spreading of project results across the organisation.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.
