1st Meeting, Paris 13th - 14th Nov, 2014
At our project inception meeting, we spent time introducing the partner organisations and their respective work, relevant projects and expertise. We planned our delivery of the project's first intellectual output (IO1) - a synthesis of success indicators for work-related basic skills. We also mapped out the overall schedule for the 3 year duration of the project.
2nd Project Meeting, Dortmund 16th - 1th Mar, 2015
We reviewed the partners' templates for input into IO1 and discussed the synthesis into our report on success indicators. We planned the collection of national policy and practices for work-related basic skills for IO2 and discussed the tools for this. We also undertook a tour of the city which helped us understand some of the recent economic history of the region and the associated implications for work-related basic skills training.
3rd Project Meeting, Leicester 2nd - 3rd Jul, 2015
At the Leicester meeting, we formally validated IO1, discussed progress with IO2 and started to map out the content for our joint train the trainers workshop, to be held in Timisoara in January 2016. We also enjoyed a cultural visit to the Richard III visitor centre and Leicester cathedral.
4th Project Meeting, Timisoara 25th - 26th Jan, 2016
In Timisoara, we provided a status update on the ongoing Intellectual Outputs and planned a new timeline. We also took stock of the project administrative and financial situation, in order to collect all relevant elements needed for the second interim report. We made an intermediate evaluation of the project quality, highleted difficulties and scope for improvement. Lastly, we finalised the content and animation techniques of the "training the trainer" activity, which took place the same week in Timisoara.
5th Project Meeting, Sandefjord 29th - 30th Sep, 2016
Our 5th Project meeting took place in Sandefjord, Norway from 29th to 30th September 2016. The aim of this meeting was to present partners' pilot experiences (ongoing activities, next steps, first impressions) and to launch IO4: "Policy recommendations/guidelines"
6th Project Meeting, Dortmund, 5th April 2017
In Sandefjord, partners decided to organise an extra meeting in Dortmund, in order to finalise IO3 and discuss in details the work methodology for the implementation of IO4. The final dissemination event was another important topic discussed in Dortmund.
