Marketing Text The ACES project aimed to further develop a software tool for the use of quality management professionals in the VET /HEI sectors. The tool enables the cross referencing of quality criteria and indicators across a range of quality frameworks and is a valuable instrument within this process. Leaflets introducing the ACES tool were produced early in the project and are available in English and Czech. The purpose of the leaflets was to explain the aims and objectives of the project and describe the potential value of the software tool to potential end users. Country specific versions giving the relevant contact details per partner country were also produced. Leaflets also contain user recommendations to help explain the benefits of the product to the general public.
Posters and flyers were produced at several stages of the project.Early leaflets were devised to advertise the project potential to education delegates at various seminars and these were afterwards discussed further and revisions made so that leaflets were updated as each stage of the project was completed. The leaflets were also translated into Czech as English language versions were deemed insufficient for the Czech market. Later versions of the leaflets described the benefits of the tool in more detail and also included specific contact details for education specialists in each partner country.
Posters were also produced which were used as visual aids when giving short presentations about the project to interested parties at small workshops.These had more detailed and sepcific text than earlier versions.
Target groups included:-
delegates at international education and IT conferences in a range of countries
quality management professionals in the partner countries and in the sister project countries
lead body organisations in the fields of quality and quality management
quality staff in the partner organisations
VET/HEI staff in the partner countries
The final leaflets produced were profesionally designed and were successfully distributed to all of the partners for dissemination at conferences and seminars and also to individual partner contacts.
A numbers of pilot users were recruited through reading about the project via the leaflets.
Area of application The leaflets will continue to be of use even post project as the project hopes to continue rolling out the ACES tool to quality profesionals in the partner countries and also within the wider EU as the use of EFQM becomes more widespread in the education sector.
