The meeting, which was held at Lleida’s Escola del Treball and at GLOBALleida, brought together the eight partners that form part of the EROVET European project.
This project, which is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, focuses on sharing experiences, activities, methodologies and programmes with the aim of improving opportunities for students of Vocational Training to access the labour market, whether working for others or via self-employment.
On 8th, 9th and 10th May, the final meeting of the project was held in Lleida (Spain). This meeting of the Steering Committee was attended by representatives from the eight entities participating in the project. This meeting was used to present the results obtained over the past months, which included the Erovet Job Pool and the Erovet guide on work-based learning. In addition, it was presented the rules and bases for: a European Entrepreneurship Prize aimed at students engaged in vocational training cycles, an Entrepreneurship Label to recognise those vocational education training centres in Europe which stand out for their work to promote entrepreneurship and a Entrepreneurship Business Management Course aimed at students in the final courses of training cycles at educational centres that are partners of the project.
Although these initiatives were initially aimed at students from the 7 vocational training centres that participate in the project, it is also open to any other centres that wish to take part in it.
The meeting was also used to evaluate the project as a whole and also highlighted interest in maintaining the sustainability of the project beyond the end of its subsidised period in order to maintain the Erovet community and consolidate the project.
On this occasion, the Turkish delegation was accompanied by representatives from the educational authority of its Mamak region, which is responsible for 93,717 students, 5,649 teachers and 169 schools, of which 27 are vocational training centres.
