You could be one of thousands to take part in the Cedefop, European Transversal Study Visits programme for education and vocational training specialists.
A study visit is a short-term visit of three to five days for small groups of specialists and decision-makers to meet with likeminded experts from other European countries. Exponential is hosting one of the Study Visits.
Part of the European Commission’s lifelong learning programme 2007-13 (LLP), study visits provide a great forum for discussion, exchange and learning on themes of common interest and on European and national priorities. By exchanging innovative ideas and practices, participants promote the quality and transparency of their education and training systems and create new contacts for future collaborative working.
“Our Study Visit is based upon the work we are doing with High Growth Coaching and management development: it is called, Supporting growth of SMEs through effective leadership and management development. The interest in High Growth Coaching and High Growth Companies is huge at the moment so we are expecting a lot of interest in the programme”. said Exponential Director, Michelle Moore.
Exponential will be hosting the Transversal Study Visit at its Leicestershire based offices. Participants are expected to attend from across Europe, especially the Baltic region. During the visit, participants will learn about some of the current best practice tools and techniques to develop and support managers in High Growth Companies.
The Cedefop catalogue of Study Visits lists nearly 250 different Study Visits covering almost every aspect of lifelong learning. The catalogue is clear and very user-friendly and with most Study Visits being delivered in English it represents a cost-effective way of undertaking some personal development and researching potential partnership opportunities.
The programme is open to education and vocational training specialists and decision makers, so people from all areas of education, coaching, consulting and training can take part. This includes those working in private sector companies, local authorities, schools and colleges, sectoral organisations, the voluntary sector and non-governmental organisations.
The benefits of participating in a Study Visit are numerous and include learning about new practices and approaches in education and vocational training, exchanging expertise with other professionals, and networking.
