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:
• interactive 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.

Since his course has several features in common with other courses (as you can check on this platform), sometimes participants will be all together, sometimes with some other participants, sometimes alone, depending on the specific programme. In this way we also intend to foster the cooperation and exchange between them all, as well as the knowledge of other school education systems and practices.

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.

The content of the course was quite relevant and it has a good transferability potential. It made me think about my daily work and offered me new ideas and tools to improve my teaching skills. The visit to a local school was really interesting and inspirating. The place were the course took place was really well located but the room and the reception could be better. I would like to have had more time to spend sharing information and experiencies from my colleagues from Serbia, Lituania, Rumania, Germany and Czech Republic. It has been a pleasure to meet you all!!! Thanks to Alessandro for offering us the opportunity to keep in contact through Edmodo. I hope we could share further experiences.

The organisation was good, but the teachers weren't happy withthe content of the course - there was not enough about entrepreneurship.

Kind Ewa, as for what we see, the main problem is what participants expect to hear and learn about entrepreneurship. We offered a clear view, compoesed by several features and fields that nowadays chacracterise the entrepreneurship and sense of initiative. And several innovative methods and tools to foster these competences on your students. We remain at your disposal for any question and to help your participants learn even more. Thanks

All the contents were relevants for our job and we appreciated very much the competences of the former Alessandro Gariano during all de sessions in Milano (Italy). We are sure the methods and the tools were perfect for our learning and to use them in our practices as teachers. Our activity was perfectly linked to the needs and objectives of our home organisation. We have gained practical skills relevant for our current job and professional development. We have been able to experiment and develop new learning practices and teaching methods. Thanks to this mobility activity, we have also improved our analytical skills, our practical skills (e.g. planning and organising, project management, etc.) and our teamwork abilities. In fact, the spaces were appropriate and the timetable was good for us. We enjoyed also to visit the public school and contact with a different educational system as well the cultural visit of the city. The communication was good between all the participants and there was a good atmosphere of warmth. We would like to take part in other similar initiatives in future. We thank the former Alessandro Gariano (Enjoy Italy) for all the help and knowledge that he has transmitted. We are Augusto Mendes and Hermínio Marques, teachers of Agrupamento de Escolas de Carregal do Sal - Portugal.

This is a first-rate course that delivers on all of its objectives. The trainer is experienced and extremely professional in his delivery of the course material. The course is provided through the English language but the trainer was able to communicate in English, Spanish, French, Italian and more than a little Greek. Well worth considering if you are contemplating a course in ICT, Leadership and Enterprise. I actually attended this course in Malta between 2 August and 6 August 2018.

I have been very exited to join your training course (held in Utrecht). For me it was the first Erasmus course and I have difficulties to find our something wrong Organization was perfect both location, spaces timetable and communication with the teacher. Training methods and tools were very clear and suit to the target of the course. I'm sure the course reached a high quality objects, and I really hope to attain a second one. Best regards Flavio
