Thanks to a Grundtvig Contact Seminar!
- This Grundtvig Learning Partnership began thanks to the Contact Seminar hosted by the Portuguese national agency in November 2008. At this seminar, the present partners from Estonia, Finland, France, Portugal and Scotland met for the first time and began to identify the common ground on which they wished to work together.
- The project proper began in September 2009, with the CNED, France, inviting another major French partner, the INS HEA in Suresnes, to join the project, and Motherwell College, Scotland inviting Northern Ireland, via the University of Ulster, to do so too.
- A series of six Steering Group meetings and workshops over the two years enabled the project partners to carry out basic Desk Research and to organize Focus Groups in year one with an aim to identifying the key needs of teachers in prison.
- Year two was devoted to laying down a training Framework to satisfy these needs in consultation with numerous stakeholders in all the partner countries concerned and with added input from the LONCETT Prison Education Project in England thanks to links established by the Scottish partner.
- The project benefited from evaluation from the Head of the Innovation Department of the CNED. The text - see link below - summarizes his conclusions on the project and the resulting Framework.
