Due to the innovative nature of the project and after considerable research it was determined there was little or no information available on the MA concept.
Those instances that came to light did not fully embrace the concept of MA and in order to address this need through the Transfer of Innovation project we felt it expedient to produce a guide for implementation of such projects using experiences and lessons learned from this TOI with regards to the implementation of Mutual Assistance in each sending country.
We would envisage that the guide will include the following:
1. Introduction to the Leonardo Da Vinci Programme and how it can
support Mutual Assistance Mobility
2. The Role of Host Partners
3. The Role of Sending Partners
4. The Role of Accompanying People
5. The Disadvantaged Participants
6. Living and learning Abroad – past success stories and case studies
8. The Participant Learning Pack and Qualification
13. Dealing with problems and conflict management
14. Returning Early and Home Sickness
15. Personal Problems;
16. Medical problems
17. Serious Misconduct
18. Health and Safety
19. Checklist and Forms; etc.
20. Comprehensive information on the 3 stages, preparation, mobility &
post project stages.
Having now a thorough understanding of the mutual assistance concept and the different elements it comprise of the second section of the guide would be to establish a step to step guide on the implementation of the project.
Please note the availability date for this result is September 2013, however work towards achieving this result has already started - we have already produced a guide based on the BET’s experience in running mutual assistance mobility projects. That was borne at the very inception of the project.
This guide is to a large extent the foundation that will serve for the basis of the future final BLUE PRINT GUIDE FOR SUCCESFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF MUTUAL ASSISTANCE PROJECTS IN EUROPE through updating the original version to accommodate best practice and cross fertilization of knowledge that has taken place during the lifecycle of the project.
The website also serves as a dissemination tool for the current TOI project.
Please refer to the following link to see the guide to date - http://www.bhagavat.org.uk/TOI/The_project_%20guide_FINAL.pdf
Encouraging entrepreneurship, we are always considering opportunity costing, added value and the long term benefit of the proposals. From this TOI project will evolve three main legacies, one of which is the BLUE PRINT GUIDE FOR SUCCESFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF MUTUAL ASSISTANCE PROJECTS IN EUROPE.
It will contain the whole history of the TOI Project and also guidance for how the project should be implemented in other countries. The research the 4 partners made in their own countries will contribute to the adaptation of our current published guide.
The additions to the guide so far includes:
1. The history of the Mobility Project
2. The history of the TOI project
3. A short description of the first 2 seminars and the main outcomes
4. The profiles of the likely disadvantage participant
5. The research are ongoing process the partners are still finalizing the
data from the questionnaires and once this is done, the research
will be published and add to the guide.
Please note this is not an exhaustive list of elements, others will be included in the guide from cross fertilization of knowledge gained through the Transfer of Innovation project, enhanced by the findings from the implementation in different countries.
Once published, this guide will be widely accessible and available for download from our website, hence a legacy of the TOI project as it will be available post project.
