Final Meeting Bologna, 5th December 2019
The closing meeting for the NT4S project will take place on 5th December 2019 at Circolo degli Ufficiali, Bologne, Italy. The meeting will be open to the public and all trainers, trainees and other parties who are interested in finding out about the tools which have been developed over the two year project and the philosophy behind the teaching approach and the different national tests will be invited.

The meeting will give partners the opportunity to show evidence of the different stages of the project as well as more global issues which they have come across which relate to training and learning in a work situation, but also the importance of its internationalisation and the issues and perspectives which ensue.

In real terms, the specific aims in organising this final meeting are the following:
  • present the intellectual outputs (learning tools, recommendations and areas to work on) and to gather feedback to assist the partners in their evaluation of the project
  • involve the trainers and social workers who participated in the training session in Belgium in February 2019
  • Promote discussion on the themes linked to the workplace training and the training business
  • Give feedback on the system of Italian professional training, which is at the testing stage under the name of “dual system”
  • Give suggestions for future areas to work on in the training and social inclusion sectors
  • Give an opportunity to various sectors to make connections regarding the development in their countries and to meet and share their thoughts for the future
On the afternoon of 5th December the partners will have the chance to finalise their work on the piloting at the sixth and final meeting of the project There will be a visit to an Italian work based training centre on 6th December
The Fifth Transnational Meeting
The fifth transnational meeting took place on 13th and 14th June in Porto, Portugal. The Portuguese partner SPI welcomed the European partners: AID (Belgium), Aspire (United Kingdom), Covergence Emploi (France), Scuola Centrale Formazione (Italy) and CSC (Belgium)

Discussions were based on the adaptation of different national versions of common tools (decided on in Namur in February): a discussion on the testing stages led by the trainers from each country from March to May allowed for the strengthening of partners’ perceptions with regard to the finalising of different tools.

To sum up, the targeted tools are:
  • An anti-discrimination document
  • A document to prepare for a placement
  • An evaluation document
  • An online learning tool (Kahoot)
The piloting committee was thinking about the next stage of the project, to know how to collect information with a view to proceed with the recommendations linked to the tools developed through the project regarding work based learning.

As for the trainers, the discussions once again were of a practical nature with a visit to the Ecole Professional in Aveiro.
National Testing of the Tools
Previously (March to May), the trainers from the partner countries had adapted the common tools from the training session in Namur in February 2019 to their national context. This was in order to incorporate and test them in their daily training and inclusion

The Belgian partner tested tools in two work based learning companies. The Italian partner applied this in their professional training centre, the workshop and social cooperative linked to the centre. The Portuguese partner tested tools at the professional training centre in Aveiro. Therefore results can be expected from various partners from the social inclusion sector and target groups (young people and adults in training, handicapped persons etc.)

The tools are available via this link: http://www.nt4s.eu/outlis-adaptes/. Each tool is introduced by a video from the partners. The videos are currently in French, Italian and Portuguese. An example of a Belgian video can be seen below:
