At the end of November, the ALL IN partners from Bulgaria, Belgium, Italy, Slovenia, Austria and Spain descended on a very chilly Edinburgh to hold the second Partner Meeting hosted by YouthLink Scotland.
As a reminder, the ALL IN project is a Strategic Partnership Project (KA2) funded by Erasmus+ to develop and test training modules on inclusive youth work for the youth work sector.
The purpose of this meeting was to update each other on the progress of the project so far, as well as to think ahead to the next stage of the project: development of the training modules.
We spoke about the work we have done since the first partner meeting in May. Each partner has been busy consulting with the youth work sector in their country; we have produced a report on the training needs of the sector in our countries; we have a new project website; we have designed the framework of the training modules; and we’ve been talking to lots of people about the project.
Our main discussion was about the development of the training modules and what they might be like. We discovered each country has very different training durations and we spoke about how we can meet the expectations of the youth work sector in each country. We set up some key deadlines for the next few months to keep us all on track.
Partners were also introduced to different Scottish food and drinks like Irn Bru, tablet and shortbread. The verdict – too much sugar!!
It was really useful to spend more time together and consolidate our understandings about the project and our expectations for the next stage. From December until March, the project team will be developing the first version of the training modules. We will be posting more updates here soon.
After a busy two days, partners went out to explore Edinburgh and some jetted back home. We will next meet as a project team in June 2018 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
