Comenius Multilateral Projects are undertaken by consortia working together to improve the initial or in-service training of teachers and other categories of personnel working in the school education sector to develop strategies or exchange experiences to improve the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom. Each project is expected to give rise to an identifiable outcome - e.g. a new curriculum, training course, methodology, teaching strategy, teaching material - which meets the training needs of a defined group of educational staff, taking account of the realities of each participating country. The use of all possible methods, including information and communication technologies, for the production and dissemination of training materials to the widest possible audience is encouraged.

Monitoring and evaluation for enhancing the quality of work carried out by projects should be planned from the very start of each project as a continuous project activity. Dissemination of the good quality results, specific ‘dissemination’ events involving educational authorities or policy makers to raise awareness of the project’s activities and planned outputs should be always included. In addition, participation in Comenius Multilateral Networks events of the same thematic area is encouraged.
