Hi everybody again!
I think that the time of my EYE experience is running too fast and the more I am involved in the project the more I am interested in it.
During these last weeks I had the chance of getting completely absorbed in many different events and research projects such as the seminar for the QC-VET project which is focused on developing a culture of quality within organisations, delivering vocational education and training programmes. Through this workshop we promoted the findings of a survey that was undertaken (among VET organisations) earlier in the year. The seminar also acted as the basis for securing the organisations participation in the continuing professional development programme pilot that will be offered with the project.
Then we focused on other programmes like Health Points which has been formed as a strategic partnership to develop innovation in health literacy in adult education by developing, testing and/or implementing innovative practices for tutors and trainers that support disadvantaged young adults. They will design a new, online learning resource through game-based learning and support tutors, teachers and educators, creating new learning and teaching methodologies and pedagogical approaches.
Finally, we have been conducting a research for four foreign startups who have serious ambitions to scale into the UK market and wanted to find out whether their product/service could be sold here. I think it has been the most challenging investigation I had the opportunity to carry on because I could deepen and analyse three of the main supporting sectors in the UK: education, tourism and finance.
To conclude, I believe I am really opening my mind in London and I have a lot of good expectations for the following weeks!
