Since its inception, Rinova has been acting as the project coordinator of ASPIRE ( ), a European project concerned at developing a new approach to validating the skills of tutors and trainers in the arts and cultural non-formal learning sector. ASPIRE, which involves partners in Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark and the UK, is approaching the completion of its work and representatives from Rinova – Amanda Francis, Gina Placey and Richard Parkes, are attending the final partnership meeting in Rome between the 12 and 14 September.

The ASPIRE partnership has recently published a newsletter . ASPIRE will also be featured at a conference event on Monday 10 October at Hampstead Town Hall, hosted by WAC Performing Arts and Media
