16-17 December 2014, Barcelona (ES) – Following the kick-off meeting of the Erasmus+ project JET CD in Västernorrland in September 2014, the first multiplier event was organised by the region of Catalunya in December last year. 37 participants from the partner organisations and from different organisations from the region attended this event. The project partners had an opportunity to discuss with the stakeholders the activities and good practices that developed in the region. In addition to the theoretical aspects, the project members visited the “El Llindar” premises, an educational foundation which works in close collaboration with the regional authorities to develop practical solutions for combating dropouts.
The first intellectual outputs, the analysis report of each region, including the national and regional policy context, the overview of the compulsory educational system and some concrete actions to combat dropouts were presented and discussed during the meeting.
The JET CD project is carried out in simultaneously with the existing AER working group on ‘School Drop-Out’ which started its work in 2013. Both will benefit from and feed into each other’s expertise.
