with this GET-UP newsletter we would like to inform you about the current state of the project and thank you for your interest!
The GET-UP Consortium held its fourth meeting in April 2018 in Nicosia (see image below). The meeting went well and successful. Many organizational matters were discussed at this meeting. Above all, that there is a shift of the datelines within the project, because the project has received an extension of 4 months - until 31.12.2018.
As you read in the last newsletter, the tailor-made "Green Entrepreneurship Curriculum" and the supplementary CPD training programme of the GET-UP project were further improved.
Therefore, another important aspect of the meeting was the question about how to handle the piloting of the modules. In the next few weeks, the partner countries will test the CPD-training and Curriculum (piloting). The overall aim of the piloting will to assess what works and what could work better with the curriculum. The scale and scope of the piloting: a minimum of 12 nascent green entrepreneurs or microenterprise owners will complete the curriculum in each partner country.
In order to evaluate and compare the quality of the modules every partner will write a testing report (max. 2 pages), which includes questions like are you happy with the modules? Is something missing etc.
Its free and up to the partners, whether they conduct the CPB Training in English or their mother tongue. UPB will send a detailed plan after the meeting to the partners.
We are curious to see how the piloting of the Green Entrepreneurship Curriculum and the CPD training will proceed and how it will appeal to the target group.
The project's final conference will take place and hosted by UPB in Germany from 27th-29th of November in 2018.
On the 27th November of 2018 at the first day of the conference a significant public event will conducted. It will attract an audience of about 100 persons drawn from the green business sector, micro-enterprise owners and the VET sector. A particular focus will be placed on attracting senior representative at policy level. This event will be used to launch the full suite of resources developed; the new comparative analysis report; and the policy paper.
