The purpose of this area is to enhance the school’s relationship with society in general and different interest groups, in order to ensure fluid communication and active introduction of the differentiating features of value provided by the school in all the fields in which it is able have an impact.
The targets in this area focus on improving the educational quality at the school and the students’ development of the skills and abilities required to adapt to and take advantage of the potential of an increasingly dynamic environment, promoting innovation in teaching methods and the integrated use of technology and languages.
The Smart Innovation Seal has enabled us to thoroughly review and reflect on processes essential for the implementation of innovation at the school.
This has enabled us to organize and apply the ideas required to put in place the planned changes in our processes and services, with the aim of on-going improvement in our schools’ educational aims.
It has been a key tool to agreeing on procedures, establishing targets and to involving all the members of the community, enabling them to work in the same direction in their different roles. We’ve reached an historical moment involving profound changes, and we need to be effective in the management of our human capital, time and resources.
