METHOD: This Strategic Partnership heads to transfer to Europe an experience of social transformation that is already being implemented in Spain where social agents of base like relatives and other community members are completely involved. PRELIMINARY RESULTS: The Xarxa Clau project: Families for Educational Success is being developed in Catalonia (Spain) since 2012 and in just one year of the project, 449 parents have been trained and achieved that 51 AMPA were developing the SEA in the educational centres of their sons and daughters, etc. CONCLUSIONS AND PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: SEA emerge as universal and transferrable practices that are creating successful learning environments anywhere they are implemented. In this sense Included research has demonstrated the vital importance of participation and training of the families and its interrelationship between family and community as catalyst of school success. Concretely, multipliers events have been alternated with intellectual outputs (on-line training for families associations and training material aimed at families) and with presencial trainings for families to allow the main objectives of the project.
