Accessing Funding for Adult Education (GRUNDTVIG) (WS5748)
Thursday, 1st November 2012, Leeds City Centre
With a £280m budget, the Grundtvig programme is a significant source of funding for adult educators, their organisations and projects. It funds a wide range of training opportunities for adult education organisations, staff and learners. Significant funding can be accessed for activities such as:
Anyone in adult education settings (formal, informal or non-formal) can take part in Grundtvig, including learners, staff, volunteers and trainers from a wide variety of organisations including colleges, companies, charities, community groups, local authorities etc. All projects involve working with European partners and offer great learning and personal development experiences for those involved.
The aim of this workshop is to familiarise organisations with the Grundtvig programme and through a combination of group discussions, presentations and exercises, to raise delegates awareness of the broad range of possible activities and projects. Using his experience as an assessor to the programme and former project manager, the facilitator will offer important tips on both bid writing and project design.
The workshop will explore the wide-ranging areas of interest covered by the Grundtvig Programme, including: key competencies (literacy, numeracy, communication); quality assurance (teacher training, assessment of teaching & learning); improving access (outreach, education-business partnerships, e-learning); informal learning (validating outcomes, hard to reach learners); family learning initiatives and language learning.
The workshop will help prepare delegates to meet the requirements of the annual programme deadlines in February/March and will specifically cover:
i) An introduction to the Lifelong Learning Programme (2007-13)
ii) Key aspects, priorities, criteria and funding available
iii) How to apply and where to send your application form
iv) How the application form is assessed
v) An overview of what the assessors are looking for
