On June 22nd and 23rd, we had the pleasure to host the 2nd Transnational Project Meeting of the MOVE-UP project at the premises of Academy of Entrepreneurship in Athens. It was an inspiring experience with the main purpose of analysis of the work done and goals-setting.
MOVE UP aims to develop a flexible upskilling pathway for women with experience of motherhood, offering the opportunity of assessing, validating, and further developing their professional competences, with focus on the Personal, Social and Learning to learn competence (PSL).
The first day was full and productive. After the welcome and the quick overview of the agenda, the first priority was the state of the art of the project activities including the update of the workplan and the monitoring of the project budget.
The next topic was the Outreach strategy. The implementation and the reporting phase was presented by the project partner RIDAP and then all national teams participated in the presentation and discussion of the plan for implementing the Outreach strategy at a national level.
The next steps were the monitoring of the first results of Quality Assurance activities and the presentation of the Impact evaluation framework. On this topic, the partners discussed on impact evaluation criteria and indicators, according to national context, study, existing data and researches and shared their next steps.
Following, the partnership had the opportunity to virtually meet guest speakers from Greece who each presented their topic related to the empowerment and reintegration of mothers in education and the labour market through employment and (social) entrepreneurship.
Two of the organizations that honored us with their participation in the meeting are already members of the MOVE-UP Alliance.
