Taff on the Move 2
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2016
We have already been successful with Stage 1 of this project - and feel it is imperative to build on its success with Stage 2.
Taff on the Move 2 is a small scale learning mobility project. Its objectives are:
~Introducing delegates to the European context
~ Acquiring new skills
~ Exploring new models of delivering learning
~ Cross fertilisation of ideas and experiences.
Taff's European Plan is specific in that identifying and creating effective partnerships is an essential step in working collaboratively in the European context. Having a greater understanding of the diverse cultures and outlooks on learning delivery within the EU is an important step in creating effective partnerships and to this end we are sending 7 delegates on a carefully selected suite of training courses delivered by our learning mobility partner, the Dorea Institute. The courses have been selected based on competencies we need to meet or improve.
The key competencies identified are:
~ Improved knowledge of European funding and partnerships
~ Learning to apply decision-making and problem-solving skills to reduce risk and choose the best course of
action while strategically achieving business objectives.
~Handling Stress and Avoiding Burnout
~Enhancing Understanding of Emotional Intelligence
Taff will select 1 staff member from the Support Services Management Team for 1 of the courses, based on their key strategic role within the association. and involvement in the delivery of European projects.
A further 6 delegates will be selected from Taff's staff and volunteer body based on the following criteria:
~ Willingness to travel and participate in the project.
~ Ability to benefit from the both the learning delivered and the international context of the learning.
~ Successful achievement of own objectives and competencies.
~ Inclusion of required competencies in personal and professional development targets.
As with Taff on the Move 1, the organisation will establish the delegates as a project group who will meet regularly before and after the training courses to assess and evaluate the project. Further evaluation of the objectives will take place as part of the association's appraisal process.
The outcomes and lessons learned from the project will be shared throughout the organisation and will feed into the association's European Plan.
