The close of project dissemination event offered a perfect opportunity to present the journey that the project partners have taken in developing and placing the systems, practices and eresources that have enabled VET students/graduates to become self enterprising in the labour market.
The final event shared partners' experiences, VET student experience as well as the materials and resources developed, along with an in-depth exploration of the findings and key themes of the project, led by the external evaluator. As suggested by the external evaluator, the event also had a secondary theme of sharing CC's experiences of leading an EU project, and informing other SMEs of how they could get involved in similar programmes and what benefits their organisation could get from it.
The event was attended by local SMEs, representatives from VET and academic institutions, members of organisations such as The Federation of Small Businesses, Birmingham City Council and also delegates from not for profit organisations. The consortium felt that it would be hugely beneficial to the project as a whole if the event could be broadcast online to allow beneficiaries, staff and stakeholders in each of the partner countries to view the event remotely. This was done using a platform called UStream, and partners ensured beforehand that everyone involved in the project, and those who may have been interested to find out more, had the access details to watch online.
The event also included a networking session, at which delegates, partners and the external evaluator discussed the project, shared ideas and explored possible opportunities for collaboration.
Target group Teachers, trainers and managers of VET and business organisations, VET students, learners, SMEs and e-business start-ups, business support agencies, Chambers of Commerce, European Commission, SME associations, social enterprise coalitions, government departments and European Commission
