Study Visit Participant
Associação Empresarial de Portugal (AEP) hosted a Transversal Study Visit in Porto on the theme of ‘In-Company Action Training to Foster Employability and Competitiveness.
The aim of the study visit was to showcase a 12 year old methodology to promote enterprises’ competiveness through sustained development of organisation and management practices. The programme was developed to give an overview of the reasoning behind the development of the methodology and how it is structured and implemented.
Stephen Moore from the University of Wolverhampton participated in the study visit “The visit was immensely enjoyable, professionally very interesting and very well organised. The programme demonstrated the work AEP are doing and the impact they are having on SMEs across Portugal. The case studies demonstrated ‘real life’ examples of how the methodology had been implemented”.
The visit allowed Stephen to gain valuable insights from AEP and share experiences with other delegates, the comparisons Stephen was able to make have been particularly valuable in developing his work in this area. He now has a network of European contacts with which he can discuss and share ideas.
If you are involved in education or vocational training as a specialist or decision maker, then you can apply for a grant to take part in a European Study Visit.
