Meanwhile, back in Europe ...
Whilst the Brexit debate rumbles on in the UK,
members of the Rinova team were quite literally spread across the
EU this week, reinforcing the message that it is very much
'business as usual' for our multiple EU-funded programmes. The
run-up to Christmas sees a number of kick-off meetings for exciting
new projects and the on-going delivery of others, whilst
today's Metropolisnet AGM in Berlin,
provides an example of Rinova's commitment not just to maintain,
but to strengthen relations with our many European partners.
In an exceptionally busy couple of weeks, the Rinova
team will be present in Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain and Sweden.
This week alone sees the launch of the new 'Tell Your Story'
project in Pau, which uses digital storytelling as a technique to
address 'second chance' and early school leavers. Whilst in
Volos, we will attend the kick-off meeting of Folk
University-led QC-VET which combines two threads that are so
central to much of Rinova's work and looks at promoting a quality
culture in VET. In Berlin, following straight on from the
successful Metropolisnet AGM, we will be delivering the next
meeting of the UK-led, Euro I-Vet project as it reaches a key stage
in the development of the practitioners training curriculum. It's
looking like a busy but productive time for the team and certainly
a positive end to a good year on the European front.
Next week sees us participating in 3 further kick-off
meetings, so more on those to follow from Uppsala, Seville and
In mid-January, the team will also be facilitating a
learning development workshop for the Job Broker project, hosted by our Metropolisnet
and German partner, Gsub, back in Berlin. At this event, partners
will be developing the learning approach to be piloted, having
completed both a research and needs analysis programme and an
Occupational Profile for European Job Brokers. You can find
out more about the project and the results that are emerging here.
