Transnational Management and Co-ordination (WP 2)

Coordinator: St George’s Community Hub, UK
Timeframe: 36 months

Activities

The aim of this WP is to deliver the transnational aspects of the project effectively through a dedicated coordinated action plan. The partnership has agreed that this project needs a separate WP for transnational activity, due to the additional complexity of organising trainers to participate in some of the transnational work as part of feedback and training requirements as well as supporting the setting up  in regard to dissemination and wider transfer but in particular the delivery of the final transnational exploitation workshop in Brussels in April 2016. The transnational coordinator based within St. George’s will also be responsible for initiating the transnational meetings and other transnational activities (such as the initial training of trainers) producing the agendas, minutes and actions following each meeting to ensure these are sent out to partners within 2 weeks of the meeting taking place. The coordinator will also take responsibility for supporting both the external evaluator and external researchers  in regard to the transnational element of the both the desk and field research, but particularly in the more complex field research in regard to follow up of outstanding returns. The transnational co-ordinator will organise the initial training trainers 5 day programme to be undertaken in the UK in July 2014, and work with the expert trainers to produce and submit the  training programme within ECVET.
The partnership has agreed that all the meetings will be held in the most common language which is English.
