DECLIC ACTIVITIES – at local level – Final Evaluation

The project requires local activities undertaken by your own organisation. The aim of the project is to include local learners and trainees, staff and local companies.

The objective of this project is to address the lack of desire from many young learners, especially female, to engage in vocational technical training and to work in production companies. We are interested to hear in what the impact has been so far on learners, staff and your organisation. Please describe in your own words. In the final report you will be asked to evaulate their language skills, ICT skills, Social skills, vocational skills, motivation, self-confidence, knowledge about partner countries and cultures.

The impact is high. We have a change from the begin to his point. In reference to learners, they improve skills and knowledge and this is growing in the number of projects developeds linked to the goals of the project. The project is a new point to think, create and learn from a different point of view.


2.2 What is the impact so far on teachers and staff?
The impact is high. The teachers depart from a technical, structural and building goal, and change to more dinamic and motivating work together with the learners.


2.3 If applicable – can you describe if any changes have been made so far to the

  • training programme – first time to be developped, but we think to repeat the experience.
  • organisation arrangements – We have created a space specifically for this activity
  • organisation of management – We had to organize differently the activities of the cultural center where the project is located.
  • changes in language teaching policy – only introduce materials in different lenguages.

We think the most useful of the partner meetings was to meet the reality and conditions of developing the project by the local partner.

4.1 How can we improve the effectiveness of our meeting and make sure everybody is involved in the conversations? (translator, only speaking in English, only speaking in mother tongue etc)
Talk all languages is complicated. The English was the lingua franca for the meetings, but in some cases we need to explain in French or German some points.

We prefer the meetings, email and if is necessary skype.
