Grundtvig In-Service Training
In-Service Training funds individuals, to enable you to attend a skills-based course in another European country to aid your personal development.
Mary Dowson from Bradford Community Broadcasting received 2011 Grundtvig In-Service Training funding to attend the META Europe: Media training across Europe course.
The course was a mixture of practical radio production skills and an exploration of how adult educators help others to learn especially when working with people who are not native speakers. It provided Mary, and her fellow participants, with a great opportunity to work together and to reflect on their own work and establish good practice in both creative radio production and their teaching.
Mary said of her experience "It was such a supportive atmosphere and so conducive to people getting the most from the experience. Learning alongside people from other European countries, provided a richness to the whole experience and we have been in regular contact with each other ever since, building on the network that we established in Spain."
