The need to test new ways of helping school children and teachers to develop key competences is widely recognised by education policy makers and international institutions like the EU, OECD, UNESCO and the Council of Europe. The recent Conferences on “Supporting key competences development” (Brussels, 12-13 November 2019), “Fusion Cities” (London, 9th October 2020) and the presentation of the OECD Education 2030 Framework are examples of the consensus reached, at the policy and expert levels, on the need to change traditional teaching methods if transversal key competences are given the adequate importance.

Objectives and goals
PERFECT wants to stimulate and support the development of autonomous learning and basic research skills, creative thinking, collaborative attitudes and other “soft” skills through the creation of cultural products based on local histories. This, by sharing experiences and transferable innovative ways of teaching/learning.
The collaboration between schools of different countries shall allow pupils and teachers to share and learn about different experiences in diverse sectors. This will lead to the identification of similarities, differences and interesting socio-cultural inputs by different educational realities, fostering the sharing process among different countries.
To develop a review of the experiences conducted by schools and produce a set of methodological instruments to support the replicability and dissemination of the PERFECT “open model” of action, a common process for developing cultural products in a collaborative way.
To set up and promote a network of primary and secondary schools committed to participate in exchange of cultural products developed by their students and in a European Festival. PERFECT also aims at organising and rewarding digitally-enhanced international collaboration of partner schools by supporting the exchange of good practice and cultural products originated locally by students’ groups through an interaction supported by digital tools.
