Transnational Training II - a Continuous Path to Successful Educational Practices
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
The consortium is constituted of AEVA, UNAVE, AIDA and The Training Centre of Aveiro and Albergaria-a-Velha and it is coordinated by the first organisation. Its main goal is to contribute to the further development of its staff, so it can advance in delivering even better educational, management and guidance services. At the same time, a good cooperation among its four members in the development of the present project activities (selection, dissemination, mobility, certification and assessment), along with specific roles and responsibilities assigned to each consortium member, will make the coordination smoother and easier. This will also enhance networking as well as productive and fruitful cooperation among educational organisations in the same region, contributing, at the same time, to share good practices, to augment dialogue and ensure fluent communication. Thus, a group of 16 staff members (from board, teachers, trainers, tutors, psychologists, department and course coordinators) will participate in a wide set of learner-centred training courses with strength-based approaches. These are, among other, narrative and appreciative methodologies, question techniques to lead better, hands-on, dialogue methods to address the power of social discourses and much, much more. After a swot analysis of the consortium training needs, the following course topics were identified as most relevant: entrepreneurial education, communication skills, ICT and new technologies, leadership and strategic management, peer coaching, conflict management, training techniques, problem solving and decision making, team work and cross cultural issues. As a result of participation in the training activities, the whole consortium organisations will strongly benefit from this project as they will be better in running their educational services, where the starting point will be the learner (the reason of existence of the consortium members) and learning will be better contextualised (in the context of the learners' life). This form of learning is, in three words, more respectful, empowering and sustainable.
