Why Apply for a National Quality Label ?

If you think that your eTwinning project deserves an extra mark of success, then you can apply for the National Quality Label through your eTwinning Desktop. This appears under the section ‘Labels’. If you have more than one project that you think deserves the Label, then simply fill out an application for each.
What are the benefits? The Quality Label is concrete recognition to teachers and schools of the high level of their eTwinning activities. For pupils, this offers a boost to their work efforts, and for the school in general, a public affirmation of their commitment to quality and openness in European collaborative work.
