Learning Networks - Project management and implementation

At the last event

24 October 2019

At the last Learning Networks event, the Project Management and Implementation workshop focused on final report writing.

The group welcomed Sian Holleran from CollegesWales/ColegauCymru to share her experience of delivering high-scoring projects, as well as Erasmus+ Assessor, Dr Audrey McKeown, who gave an insight from an assessor's view. At the end of the day, the group came together to share common issues around report writing and work together to suggest solutions to the identified issues.

At this event, the workshop focused on pre and post-mobility. the group looked at best practice in mobility, particularly on ensuring participants and staff get the most out of international placements.

Looking at three time periods – pre, during and post-mobility – participants examined the complex issues and potential pitfalls that surround the process of supporting staff and learners to undertake their overseas placements. They also identified the effective practice that can make mobility as rewarding and impactful as possible.

How does the topic relate to Erasmus+?

Following consultations with Learning Networks members and the wider Erasmus+ community, feedback showed that beneficiaries would like the opportunity to share best practice around project management.

Considerations around project management are important for ensuring effective planning, smooth project delivery and clear impactful results. By sharing knowledge, experience and best practice, our beneficiaries aim to support each other in the development of their projects and find solutions to shared problems.

Effective project management enables Erasmus+ beneficiaries to use simple and practical approaches to ensure that they fully realise the potential of their projects. 

Project aims and results

All projects need to consider elements of project management as part of their planning, implementation and reporting. As such, it is important to share resources and best practice to improve the delivery of projects and overcome any potential issues.

There are many projects which currently share their resources and outputs from across the different fields of education, training and youth. Results from across all participating countries can be found on the European Commission's Project Results Platform. The platform allows you to search by key words such as project management or impact and includes:

  • a project database including links & summaries;
  • a database of project results giving access to learning outcomes; and
  • the showcasing of good practices and success stories.
