Meeting in Sofia

with No Comments

The summer has begun but for all of the partners in the ALL IN project it will be a very dynamic period for implementation of the upcoming activities. At the end of June, 2018 representatives from the partner organisations from Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium, Italy, Slovenia and Spain met in Sofia during the third Partner Meeting hosted by the Bulgarian Centre for Lifelong Learning.

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.

We have set an ambitious agenda for the meeting and realistic goals for the next phases of the project. The meeting was hosted in A Hub – a space for social inclusion and innovations, that provided a great working atmosphere for our discussions.

We have started with detailed update from each partner on our work after the last Partner Meeting in Edinburgh focusing on the implementation of the project and of course, dissemination of information and publicity of our work.

Then sufficient time was dedicated to a detailed review of all Modules developed and ready to be tested and improved in the course of our cooperation. In the past months 4 training modules were developed embracing different aspects of the topic of inclusion. They give opportunity for development of knowledge and synchronised understanding of the topic and main terms, practical skills and attitudes that enable the participants to work with diverse groups on the topic and achieve quality results. After the meeting our work on the module continues with final improvements and testing during the training in Austria 12-19 August 2018.

The partners also discussed the evaluation forms for the participants, team and trainers that will measure our work and enable us to incorporate constructive feedback in the next steps to create a quality product.

The modules will be a part of a Manual that we have already started to discuss during the meeting as it will be the final outcome of our work.

Another key topic was the planning of the Training of Trainers that will happen in October. It will be based on the modules and prepare the trainers to conduct trainings in their local communities as a final stage of testing the methodology.

Meanwhile, we have also explored opportunities for online learning platforms that we can incorporate in the learning process of the participants in the trainings to ensure more opportunities for them to communicate, learn and exchange ideas and good practices.

The 2 busy days spent in the unusually rainy Sofia ended with a lot of decisions, productive outcomes and future plans for the quality implementation of the project activities! Stay tuned for updates and follow our website for more information.
