METHODOLOGY
Based on formal, informal and non-formal education, our methodology will try to stimulate active participation, pro-activity, responsibility and sharing of all participants involved. In this way, we aim to build a diverse and stimulating environment for reflecting, working and learning. It has a horizontal and practical approach and will make use of the following tools:
• face-to-face lessons
• team-building and team-working
• best practice case-studies
• multimedia and web resources
• project based working
• practical laboratory
• brainstorming and focus-group
• role-play
• self and group assessment and evaluation.

PREPARATION
After the confirmation and before starting, we check the previous knowledge and experience of participants, as well as their specific needs related to the topics of our training course. In addition, we will provide some documents and learning contents of our “Library of Methods & Tools” in order to start getting involved in topics and subjects that will be taught.

FOLLOW UP
All participants are expected to maintain access and communication with the rest of their colleagues as well as with the trainer and participate in useful discussions either through the virtual classroom platform and via e-mail. Trainers and company will also be available for any further questions for a period of 5 months after the end of the course, either through e-mail, virtual classroom platform, individual Skype calls, telephone or WhatsApp. By means of all these tools, we aim to get an effective follow-up, to stimulate peer networking, to keep in touch and to share opinions, experiences and practices for unlimited time.

TRAINERS
The entire training catalogue is supported by an international team of experts in project management of European projects. The coordinator and main trainer of the event is Alessandro Gariano: founder and manager of Enjoy Italy, active in education and training as well as local development and destination management; trainer of teachers and for educational organisations (110+ in-services trainings provided, 900+ trainees); youth trainer in the context of non-formal education; project designer, project manager and expert of EU Programmes.

The perspective offered in those days was really powerful and I came back home with a stronger awareness and new projects and ideas that I want to apply in my school. Great and diverse classroom, also.

This course was a great experience for me. I came home with a lot of ideas. I have learned that, if you want, you can study/learn anytime and anywhere. You must be open and able to transfer the information. In the workshops I learned different non-formal methods and I accessed new applications on my computer.

No attention paid to existing knowledge or knowledge needs of clients. Several courses were in the room at one time with no other course leaders, therefore content was often irrelevant. Most of our time was spent on a computer looking at apps or websites that bore no relevance to school leadership. Very tenuous links were made to school leadership in all areas of the course. No school visits, which was extremely disappointing. Complaint made to Enjoy Italy during the course, without a satisfactory conclusion. Formal complaint made to Erasmus. This course did not meet our needs and we left with nothing other than frustration! We will not be using this company again.

Hello Angie, thanks for your feedback. We are sorry you were not satisfied with our course and also for your very negative rate. But we realised almost all things that were stated in the programme of the course, that according to our vision and methodology are pretty much related to school leadership. We hope that finally you can understand this, and turn this into your everyday practice. Regards, Alessandro Gariano
