|MEETING IN DUBLIN
The partnership met in the lovely city of Dublin on the 9th and 10th of September 2019. The project is now a year on and a
lot has been done. In the last few months, we have intensified the work and have produced 10 key emotional employment
skills for job advisors, as well as the 20 practical exercises.
On the first day of our meeting, we had a chance to have a general update on the progress of the project. Done by Merseyside Expanding Horizons (UK). We are on course and we look forward to the next stages. We also have a short presentation of the training pills and tools developed in each country. We also dealt with the topic of dissemination in the project and had an overview of the activities and recommendations by I & F Education (Ireland). We also looked at evaluation and quality Assurance. This was led by CPIP (Romania). The day ended by all partners doing a presentation on the learning materials developed in each country.
On the second day, we continued with the delivery of the learning materials developed. We had time for reflection, feedback, and questions of the training sessions of the day. We also dealt with financial issues and evaluated our meeting in Dublin.
DEFOIN, IO1 leader, presented a detailed progress related to the IO1 and highlighted the next steps
WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?
The next stage of the project focuses on piloting, a multiplier event in December 2019, IO2 development and then our next meeting in Granada in April 2020.
