E.O.I. Alcalá de Guadaíra is a state-run language school created in 1991, which belongs to the Lifelong Learning sector within the Ministry of Education.

Escuelas Oficiales de Idiomas are authorised examination centres that deliver the official language certificates recognised by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

There are more than 1,200 students taking online and onsite courses and the school team is composed of 12 teachers. Our centre offers general English and French courses up to C1 level. Also, in the region of Andalucía, the E.O.I is the only establishment accredited to run language updating courses for teachers within the Plan for Promotion of Plurilingualism.

This plan has been designed to develop plurilingual education and CLIL projects in primary and secondary schools with the aim of preparing students to succeed in a multicultural society and increasing their opportunities and global mobility in the future.

E.O.I. Alcalá de Guadaíra holds the headquarters of the Association of Teachers of Official Language Schools of Andalucía (Asociación de Profesores de Escuelas Oficiales de Idiomas de Andalucía, or APEOI-Andalucía for its acronym), whose president and vice-president, who happen to be the Head of Studies and Headteacher respectively, have been in charge since 2013. The association is devoted to the improvement of EOIs, self-assessment techniques, teacher training and functions as the representative voice of EOIs in the Department of Education.

Our school, also as part of the quality system implemented by Junta de Andalucía, has a self-assessment programme (Memoria de Autoevaluación) that is revised and updated every year by the Head of IT and Assessment Department (in Spanish Departamento de Orientación, Formación, Evaluación, e Innovación).

This department works together with the Leadership Team on the implementation of the school’s Education Project, and has the responsibility of diganosing training needs and doing research on good teaching practice and assessment. It is also responsible for providing suggested improvements in response to the student needs identified throughout the academic year.

It is out of this process of assessment and diagnosis that ADALL Project was born.
