Since January, the project’s partners have been very active to publish the first deliverables of the Net-Work project, making it possible to finally share their work !
First of all, the project partners published a Country report on Work-based adult education providers in 8 countries in all the partnership languages (EN, SR, HU; MK, SK, RO and PT). The goal of this report was to layout the context for WISEs, adult learning and WISEs networks in each partnership countries.
Go read it to learn more about the situation of WISEs, adult education and their networks in Europe!
The partners also prepared synthetic country fiches, where you can see the situation in each partners’ country at a glance!
You’ll find those reports here!
To showcase what are WISEs and what they are concretely doing at the local level, the partners gathered thirteen good practices from every country involved in the project. Learn about Green Kitchen Café Garden in Ireland, about Proxiservice in Belgium, Chrono in Serbia or KockaCsoki in Hungary and many more!
All the good practices are here!
Other than that, the partners continued their peer-to-peer learning sessions, this time on Representation and Leadership in WISEs, they also participated in a Roundtable with experts in Ireland and last, but not least, they are currently working hard on a MOOC which will focus on building networks you can learn more about it in the following articles!
On June 24th, the project partner participated to a Roundtable at the Rediscovery Centre in Dublin to exchange with experts on work-based education methodologies.
On June 23rd, the project partners met in Dublin! It was a very fruitful meeting with very interesting discussions around the project, national social economy legislation and the need, or not, of a legal form for national networks.
In May, the project partners met for the fourth peer-to-peer session to discuss “Representation and Leadership in WISEs networks”. This session helped the partners to define some crucial words to continue their work supporting networks building.
ENSIE organised, with the Net-Works project partners a webinar in the framework of the EU VET Skills Week on “What skills are needed to build a (WISEs) network?” to present the first findings of the Net-Works project.
