Learning Networks events

Learning Networks 5 December in Birmingham

On 5 December, we held our most recent Learning Networks event at etc. venues – Maple House in Birmingham. There were three thematic workshops filled with inspiring stories, good practice and real life experiences. These workshops covered:

  • Widening Participation - Making the learning last

How can you ensure the knowledge you’ve gained influences future projects? This workshop covered how to change your organisation’s approach to widening participation, encouraging attendees to discuss how good practice can be transferred from your project to your organisation. 

  • Employability - Employability through the eyes of an Erasmus+ participant

How do Erasmus+ placements allow young people to present themselves differently to employers? Attendees heard from past participants, reflecting on the skills and experiences needed for today’s labour market as well as how organisations can increase the employability of their participants.

  • Project Management and Implementation - Pre and post-mobility

Attendees shared and designed best practice activities for both the pre and post-mobility stages of a project, which assist staff, learners and organisations alike to get the most out of participants’ international experience. Focusing on all aspects from planning with partners and participants, linguistic and cultural preparation, to reintegration, accreditation and recognition, the group shared examples of practice and approaches they have used to support effective work in this crucial area.
