Title ECEtt (European Companionship in Education, training by travel) - Transfer of Innovation Project
Project Number 2009-1-BE2-LEO05-00641
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
“Knowledge Exchange is knowledge creation.".
It is based on this observation that the method of training Mecett (Method for European Companionship of Education training by travel) was designed and developed the last ten years by experienced managers from several countries of the European Union.
The method is practiced successfully in hundreds of therapeutic communities (institutions whose goal is the reintegration of addicts into a life without drugs) by hundreds of employees, combining goals of continuous improvement, skills development, recording of knowledge and, not least, a love of learning and a pride of belonging to a network.
With this success, the creators, owners of the method have developed a project of transfer of innovation to more therapeutic communities, to other sectors of human trades as well as to other professional sectors private and public. The experimental phase of the project is underway to better understand the conditions of success of such transfer so as to make benefit those who want it and to build new bridges between the managers of merchant and non-merchant sectors.
Summary ECEtt-ToI describes, step by step, how MECETT (the learning method based on benchmarking and exchange of good practices) has been transfered form the field of treatment of addicted persons to the fields of social work, education, psychiatry and one energy company. The rate of satisfaction of the 150 learners and their managers is very high (over 90% agree on the added value of MECETT).
The main characteristics of MECETT are:
Learning is focused on management objectives.
Learners are the main actors of the learning process and build their learning journey by chosing experts in a network of partners.
The knowledge of the senior referents and experts is written and fixed in "good practices" by the learners who visit them.
Validated good practices are published on an e-learning platform accessible to all partners of the network.
