Website of the project: IGTrain
Waterpolis gathered a group of experts from SMEs, public and private VET providers, as well as the consortium IGTrain, in order to disseminate the results and key findings of IGTrain project, and to discuss during round tables possible developments on the matter of SMEs’ lifelong learning programmes.
The main aim of this conference and workshop was to identify and outline possible applications of IGTrain mentoring and work-based training processes in SMEs as a systematic strategy approach for the field of lifelong learning, and more specifically in terms of intergenerational learning (IGL) processes, taking into account the concepts designed, developed and implemented during the project in hand. The workshop gathered a group of 45 attendees globally (SME and CSO managers, VET experts, and active citizens in the field of education and training).
This conference and workshop was organized on 17.02.2015 in the facilities of the hotel Jardim da Amadora, by Waterpolis and its partners Tojas investimentos (Tojas), with the support and leadership of Mr. Jorge Barata, and Associação Aldeia Lusófona, with the support and leadership of Mr. Malam Seidi.
The working activities provided an excellent opportunity to discuss and outline in a practical way the preparation of an IGL programme that will provide an excellent tutorial framework aiming at delivering efficient tools for the preparation, organisation, implementation and evaluation of training programmes based on IGTrain concepts.
