The last partnership management meeting of Eduwork.Net project took place on the 6th of April 2022 in Dublin. Indeed, the Eduwork.Net project ended on the 30th of April 2022. Moreover, this was the second partnership meeting in presence, in the project lifecycle. It was very challenging and demanding to develop a project that has the main topics on Work Based Learning and mobility, during the Covid-19 pandemic crisis.
After the first confused moments in Spring 2020, the partnership managed to reorganise the project activities, taking into account the impact of Covid-19 but without giving up on the objectives set.
The project was also affected by the Brexit, since the partner RINOVA is from UK. Also in this case the partnership found out the way to exploit the expertise and experience of RINOVA which supported the project with a reflection on the issue of lesson learned innovations, adaptations and effective practice in Work-based Learning (WBL) in Vocational Education and Training (VET), identified by the Eduwork.net project during the Covid-19 pandemic.
During the meeting the project activities and results were wrapped up and the partners agreed about the last steps to carry out before the project ending. The most important result of the meeting is the elaboration of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that the partners decided to sign as proof of the willing to enlarge and develop the network of networks in VET that Eduwork.Net has had as objective. The MoU summarises the form under which the cooperation takes place as agreed among the signatories within the next 5 years.
At the end, the partnership expressed their satisfaction about the project and its results and their commitment to meet in next Autumn, to plan the 2023 network plan activities.
