We sent kolekTIRV staff on 7 courses during 2022 and 2023 in order to achieve the following objectives;
i) gain innovative skills in the area of education on inclusive leadership and creation of inclusive learning and working environments;
ii) increase our educational provision in the area of collaboration, working with diversity and the creation of cohesive active citizenship organisations focused on long-term goals;
iii) learn new skills and best practices in the area of psycho-emotional wellbeing and burnout prevention to create well being focused educational programmes;
iv) strengthen our international networking and find new paths for our organisational development on the European level, in the area of inclusive adult education for civic engagement.
This project was funded by Erasmus + and was KA1 Adult education staff mobility in partnership with Col·lectiu Eco-Actiu.
Our staff took part in;

This project enabled us to train 10 members of staff during 2022 and 2023.
The participants were chosen using the following criteria;
- ability to transfer knowledge and multiply project results;
- position in the organisation (we want to strengthen people who are already experienced but have limited opportunities for development in Croatia, as well as to give a chance for development to new educators);
- social positioning (we will prioritise people from groups at risk of exclusion and without access to professional development opportunities due to social factors);
- professional development needs and whether they are in line with the project objectives.
