The first edition of the Tetra’s training course “EU Project Design and Management” has just been completed, certificates of achievement awarded, and the trainees prepared to engage in proposal writing for the Erasmus+ calls 2023!
This training course is dedicated to exploring EU funding programmes, with a focus on Erasmus+ and European Social Fund. By taking part in it, the participants learn more about available funding and programmes, and master project design and project management skills.
The first edition of this training course was tailor-made for a group of Spanish teachers. It was carried out online in the period of six weeks, from November 1 st till December 15th, 2022. The course included six modules covering different topics related to EU funding:
- Overview of EU funding opportunities offered by Erasmus+ and European Social Fund;
- Proposal writing: preparatory analysis, stakeholder analysis, problem analysis and identification of needs, analysis of objectives;
- Proposal writing: understanding and applying a logical framework, building a work breakdown structure, budgeting costs;
- Project management: contractual issues, consortium management, methodologies and instruments for financial management of the grant, monitoring and evaluation of project activities and results;
- Project management: stakeholder management, dissemination & exploitation of results, impact assessment, and project reporting;
- Collaborative work on a project proposal for an upcoming call (development of a concept note and a logical framework matrix); presentation of the project ideas.
The course workload is 50 hours of learning, equivalent to 2 ECVET credit points. It is based on the learning-by-doing approach. Each module consists of a trainer’s presentation, which aims to introduce the theoretical material of the course, and learning activities, which aim to facilitate acquisition of knowledge and skills by learners. The learning activities involve the analysis of real project proposals and project implementation/reporting documentation, practical exercises (e.g. stakeholder analysis and identification of needs), and joint development of a project proposal (concept note and logical framework) for an open call.
We hope, the project ideas cooperatively developed during the training will be embedded in project proposals, submitted for evaluation, and approved for funding!
