Department for International Cooperation Folkuniversitetet, Uppsala Address: Bergsbrunnagatan 1 75323 Uppsala, Sweden Phone: 018-68 00 60 Email: ali.rashidi@folkuniversitetet.se PRESS RELEASE 17.11.13 ‘NQAVET’ KICK-OFF MEETING WAS HELD ON THE 14TH – 15TH OF NOVEMBER 2013 IN MALTA ‘NQAVET’ first transnational meeting was held on the 14th – 15th of November 2013 in Malta . The meeting pointed out the launch of the project and set up the forthcoming activities plan. The project is dedicated to finding ways of spreading the energy and ideas from Leonardo projects and VET providers directly to regional and national authorities and again back from them to all VET providers. At the meeting the partnership discussed cooperation agenda for the upcoming two years. The first day started with an opening from the project coordinator, Folkuniversitetet,followed by a presentation about the project concept and objectives. Then the partners from Malta, Italy, Turkey, Netherlands and Denmark held speeches about themselves. The rest of the day was dedicated to the detailed analysis of activities in the work packages. On 15th of November the partnership discussed mostly administrative and financial matters. “Reluctantly it's quite seldom that VET-related Leonardo and Grundtvig projects find their way to a national level in order to be disseminated and used by a wide range of providers in the countries of project partners. The projects are difficult mainstream because of lack of inclusion of national authorities and thereby the needed legitimacy. Our project will pilot and test ways to disseminate and implement the tool, instruments and ideas developed in many Leonardo and Grundtvig projects in a broader regional and national scale”, - says Ali Rashidi, the director of Department for International Cooperation of Folkuniversitetet. ‘Pathway from EQAVET to NQAVET’ (NQAVET)is a Leonardo da Vinci network project, launched on the 1st of December 2013. The goal of the project is to increase transparency in European VET by enhancing development of National Quality Guidelines/recommendations and approaches for VET (NQAVET) for provider level based on EQAVET. ###
