To date, MAT has been Lead Partner on four

Erasmus Plus projects


In this project, we looked at how Dorothy Heathcote’s Mantle of the Expert system could be applied in different schools and contexts. We had partners in Portugal, Germany, Turkey and the UK. You can find the project website here.


Breaking Down Barriers looked at migration issues, through local history projects for schools. We used a method we call Narrative Inquiry. We used a range of teaching methods - Oral History; Digital Storytelling; film; drama; and more!  ​We had partners in Portugal, Italy, Turkey, Poland and the UK.

THE COMMISSION MODEL (2019–present) 

Dorothy Heathcote’s Commission Model is a development of the "Mantle" system. We have partners in Portugal, Turkey, Germany, Poland and the UK. You can find the project website here.

ROLLING ROLE (2020–present)

“Rolling Role” was originally devised by Dorothy Heathcote. In this system, a team of teachers together develop a common “context” for a programme of work. The programme of work can then “roll” from teacher to teacher; work produced by one class can be used as a resource by another class. We have partners in the UK, Italy, Spain and Poland. You can find the project website here.
