A great meeting in Como for the GIVE project on Inclusive Excellence
One year ago, when we were in the peak of the pandemic, if we were told that within a short time we would have managed to have our meeting in Como, we would have hardly believed it.
On December 1 -3 this meeting was held with project partners from all six partners in Como, Italy. Only one partner could not manage to join. The agenda was quite tight, but in addition to hard work, there was also time to discover Cometa and the Italian cuisine. The representatives met and got connected, presented their organisation, discussed about project management issues such as administrative procedures, dissemination & communication, training practices and tools for inclusive pedagogies, quality Assurance and etc.
A VET centre aiming at an Inclusive Excellence approach requires a new governance model, in terms of roles a coordinated of work packages. The partners experience shows the importance of opening the center to the regional/local and international environment. On this aspect of inclusion, we have started recently. All partners participate in small workshops and discussions.
The WP7 “Communication and Dissemination” was presented by EfVET (Stefania Rossi and Valentina Chanina). The project website was also discussed, as well as social media (Facebook and LinkedIn) and it was agreed that all partners will spread the word about GIVE project among their own professional stakeholders, VET providers, VET managers and others. After, each partner provided a short update on their dissemination activities. Golden surprise winner was announced, and presentation of gift to Cometa team ensued. All partners will update their dissemination records on Dropbox.
The meeting was concluded by Cometa and at the end of this experience, we have got very valuable feedback from the partners.
