CREATE2Evaluate is an international project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme which aims to enhance performance and efficiency in Adult Education (AE) by addressing the gap between EU/national strategies and local/regional implementation as well as the challenge of formulating appropriate AE policy. The goal is to enable policy makers to better coordinate and plan policy, share experiences and enhance inter-regional and cross-border cooperation.
The project is the official follow-up of a previous project (Competitive Regions and Employability of Adults through Education), which ran from 2017 to 2019; the CREATE2 partnership wants to capitalise on the success of ‘CREATE’ by nurturing its heritage with significant and consistent updates that will further stimulate the debate around the role of evaluation in strategies and the policy cycle in the domain of AE to improve the image of evaluation – not as a means to find blame and point fingers, but as a way to improve the processes and outcomes to the benefit of all involved.
Out of the four Intellectual Outputs foreseen during the proposal, the first one has already been completed; the Consortium is glad to present the official CREATE2 Online Educational Resource Platform: the virtual showcase of the project and the online repository of all major results and deliverables achieved by the Strategic Partnership.
The Platform is in multilanguage version (English, German, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Spanish) and it is completely free for consultation, with no log-in credentials required.
The Platform represents the major visibility means of the project for its mainstreaming and dissemination. Each section of the platform is a stand-alone resource to get a comprehensive sense on project’s results and inputs.
Particularly relevant is the CREATE Package in which partners collected all major resources coming as a legacy from the previous ‘CREATE’ project. This section will be updated as soon as new relevant sources are finalised.
To remain updated with the project’s development, please consider subscribing to the CREATE2 Associates; an online “Community of Practice” for stakeholders operating in the domain of Adult Education and Life Long Learning. So far, nearly 50 organisations decided to take part in our initiative: the CREATE2 Community gathers together local/regional public bodies and promotes greater opportunities for networking and international exchange of good practices.
In the Project, IDP brings its consolidated experience and expertise as a private provider of VET and adult education services. IDP has 25 years of experience in international and cross-border collaboration in the field of promotion of entrepreneurship and employability. IDP will greatly contribute to the technical and operational activities of the Project carrying out analysis and stock-taking activities of the Italian VET ecosystem pertaining to the project; contributing to structuring modules, developing methodologies for effective teaching and learning, materials and content.
