We Are

We are the EL partnership (EuroLink partnership), a group of schools from 6 European countries, working together. Some schools had already been working with each other on Euro Link projects funded by the European Union when we decided we wanted a more lasting relationship. Funding was vital to us, but had one drawback: if a school was not admitted for whatever reason, they would have to drop out, irrespective of their importance to us as a partnership. We also depended heavily on often one person in a partner school, which meant that if they left, the school would drop out. This was not only frustrating, but also very unhelpful for the quality of our cooperation. In 2008 we formed a sustainable partnership to ensure that the projects, exchanges and other relations we had would last, as it was the schools who committed to a 5-year cooperation in the partnership and not individuals. Besides, we pledged to help a partner school stay in the project as a ‘silent’ partner should they be refused funding. We have survived the first 10 years (and now hopefully more) as we recognise there are considerable benefits to all of us, whether we are students, teachers or school managers. We set ourselves some very tough goals and have made great progress over the years, but are keen to continue our journey and share our experience with others.
