The project is moving forward and taking shape!
On the 17th and 18th of March 2021, we organised our 2nd Transnational Partners Meeting, which was supposed to be held in Spain, in Medina del Campo (town of the Spanish partner). Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we organise it online.
Using interactive presentations, videos and online tools such as Google Jamboard and Kahoot, we managed to emerge in a cultural virtual tower of Medina del Campo, as well as to get to know each other better through some exercices.
This meeting was very fruitful and helped us to evaluate and conclude the work done so far on the BBU strategic activities, and to progress with the upcoming activities which are related to the Handbook and the creation of the Training Plan, as well as the preparation of the Pilot 1 Phase.
The launch of BuildIT! project
During two days the partners met to launch BuildIT! project: intensive work during the first partner meeting. We have two years of cooperation ahead of us, during which we will develop a set of activities to develop and train competences useful in the labour market on the basis of working with blocks, puzzles and other teaching materials, which will then create a handbook. Our direct target group will be educators and trainers working with young people out of the education system, with no additional training or work (NEETs) and low skilled adults. The partner institutions come from countries with different rates of participation in adult education. These are France, Italy, Spain and Slovakia. The coordinator of the project is a Polish institution - the Academy of Business and Health Sciences in Łódź.
