The CROSSCUT project is in line with the Euro- pean Union (EU) desire to actively support new approaches to teaching and learning. The project contributes to strengthening the profile of teach- ing profession in a lifelong learning perspective, more specifically in-service secondary school teachers and school leaders. It contributes to achieving the objectives of the European strate- gic framework “Education & Training 2020” and completing new priorities defined in 2015 by the European Commission and the Council, particu- larly “further exploring the potential of innovative and active pedagogies such as interdisciplinary teaching and collaborative methods, to enhance the development of relevant and high-level skills and competences” 1 . So, CROSSCUT addresses one of the education main challenges by train- ing teachers to adopt innovative interdisciplinary teaching methods and effective collaboration. Students shall benefit from the introduction of 17 new teaching methods since teachers are a key determinant of learners’ performances in school. Indeed, the acquisition by students of high-lev- el basic and transversal competences is key to guarantee employability, capacity of innovation and active citizenship in a lifelong learning per- spective, in order to boost competitiveness and to foster social cohesion. In that sense, the Eu- ropean Parliament and the Council have defined in their Recommendation of 18 December 2006 eight key competences 2 that are necessary for individuals to adapt flexibly to a rapidly changing and highly interconnected world. In June 2016 the Commission launched the Review of the 2006 Recommendation on Key Competences for Life- long Learning with the aim to update the 2006 Recommendation and further support key com- petences development across Europe. Based on the conclusions of the Review, the Commission adopted the proposal for a new Recommenda- tion on Key Competences for Lifelong learning in January 2018. The Council Recommendation on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning was adopted in May 2018 3 : -Literacy competence “is the ability to identify, un- derstand, express, create, and interpret concepts, feelings, facts and opinions in both oral and written forms, using visual, sound/audio and digital ma- terials across disciplines and contexts.
