The first Multiplier Event of the QUAL4T2 in Sevilla

Sevilla (ES), 17 november 2017 - The first Multiplier Event of the QUAL4T2 project took place in Sevilla last week. 26 Participants from 20 different countries were informed about the project outcomes so far. This has been done by three facilitators: Anabel Menica (ES), Margrieta Kroese (NL) and Nathalie Peters (NL). The pilot versions of both the Quality guide for teams as the Toolkit for teams were used for this workshop. Two articles have been published based on the QUAL4T2 research report and the current state of the pilots. Materials used and given to the participants were: News letter 2, quality guide in pilot version, quality tools in pilot version, the research report, two articles, the project flyer, the project product flyer, project posters and three project presentations. Anabel Menica presented the QUAL4T2 project by introducing the aims, the partners, the pilot products and the pilots that now take place in the different countries. She then showed the participants the video with the teachers’ testimonials and the project website. Margrieta Kroese started with four aspects of Q culture. She then moved on to the four portraits of quality culture that have been developed by EQAVET.NL (also associated partner). Then she introduced the three Themes of the Toolkit in pilot version: Working on Quality Culture, Design your team plan and Various team plan models. Anabel Menica presented the value of a strong team plan, by introducing some real outcomes of the questionnaires from two different teams. The outcomes showed the need for professionalization on the topic of developing a team plan. She also explained the main outcomes that can be found in the pilot version of the Quality Guide and the tools of theme B and C. After that an Open Scape event took place. The workshop ended with a discussion during lunch. Persons from the following countries were involved in this valorization activities and took project products back to their own educational organisations: Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Romania, Norway, Estonia (2), Netherlands, Finland (2), Belgium, USA, Canada, Israel (3), Japan, Ecuador, Uganda, Brazil, Morocco, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Kazakhstan. Margrieta Kroese and Anabel Menica: “As facilitators we are looking back at a fruitful Multiplier Event, based on a program that kept being attractive due to the interaction and different activities. With an overall score of 8,2 on a scale of 1-10 we are very happy with the satisfaction of the participants and the fact that we were able to stimulate their learning (score 8,2) and that what participant learned in this workshop will improve their teaching and professional activities (score 8,4!)”. The QUAL4T2 project runs from 2016 – 2019 and is granted by the decentralized Erasmus+ programme. National workshops will also be organized in partners countries, when the final content is ready. Also one more international multiplier event will take place in a later project phase.

Roundtable sessions at EfVet conference 24 – 27 October 2017

Thessaloníki (EL), 24-27 October 2017 - Gitte Dyrløv and Tina Biil Eriksen have attended the annual EfVet conference in Thessaloniki, Greece, where they presented the Qual4T2 project at two so-called roundtable sessions. At the EfVet conference, international coordinators, VET-school managers and other interested parties, who work with Erasmus+ projects, have a chance to meet and exchange experiences. Therefore, Gitte and Tina had an excellent opportunity to expand the knowledge of Qual4T2 and tell about the tools gathered in the Quality Guide and the hands-on toolkit. All attendants at the roundtable sessions were given free copies of the project products, and they were very well received. The Qual4T2 project focuses on quality in teams and teamwork and was started up last November by partners from the Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Spain and Denmark – as a follow up on the Qual4T project which focused on quality in teaching. At the moment, the partners are busy disseminating the results and the products of the project in Europe, hoping that as many VET schools as possible will benefit from their work.
