Work Programme

Quality & Innovation in Vocational Training for Enterprise Cultural Heritagemn project is structured around a coherent set of general, specific and operational objectives. These objectives are closely correlated with a number of Work Packages, which in turn produce outputs & results. Outputs & results can be clearly identified and measured, as well as intermediate milestones. The total duration (24 months) is in line with the extent of the objectives.

There is a a sound chronological organization of WP:

1) Needs Analysis;

2) ECH methodology and learning delivery requirements;

3) development (training material, NFL validation guidelines, learning environment);

4) validation and final revision. Dissemination and exploitation activities are defined for all project phases and beyond its conclusion (i.e., as an open community).

An internal and external evaluation activity (WP10) is carried out using a consolidated methodology (Utilization-Focused Evaluation) by the UoS, and will ensure the workplan is adhered to and the project runs to time and to budget.

Enterprise Cultural Heritage: a source of Quality&Innovation

Is your company steeped in history, does it have a rich collection of recipes, knowledge of traditional production methods, links with your area or other unrealised assets? This knowledge of an enterprise’s past is a valuable asset that can help you to differentiate your enterprise from others and innovate your products and services, thereby giving you a competitive advantage

This image from Lanificio Leo, an Italian traditional wool factory, highlights the tensions facing many enterprises – how to innovate while maintaining the enterprise’s traditions accumulated over many years?
