Project Officer, Anne-Marie Daly from Exponential Training said:

“The MYVA partners have worked hard to bring together a comprehensive set of learning and training resources to help any would-be VA. Instead of spending time searching for information about skills, tools and templates, learners can use the MYVA resources enabling them to focus on designing, launching and growing their own VA”.

 

The Erasmus+ project, MYVA, pilot test started in May 2022 and runs through to November 2023. Following the pilot test which will involve around forty VET teacher/trainers and young people, the MYVA partners will be holding a series of National Conferences between December 2022 and February 2023.

If you are interested in coming to one of the National Conferences, then do not hesitate to check out the project website and contact one of the national MYVA partners. The places will be limited and therefore places will be allocated on a ‘first-come, first-served basis’.

Other growth and enterprise related Erasmus projects involving the partners and which  complement MYVA include:
