The first capacity building meeting for the staff of the App HUB project was successfully conducted from the 18th to the 22nd of February 2020 in Florence, Italy.
Besides Regione Toscana which was the hosting organization, there were also representatives of all the project’s partners.
During those 4 productive days, a plethora of activities took place:
- A hands-on tutorial on the proper use of apprenticeshiphub.eu, both from the admin’s and the user’s perspective.
A significant part of the workshop was dedicated to the Positions section, the platform for submitting calls for new apprenticeship positions openings, which is going to be one of the project’s most essential elements.
- The Apprenticeship Hubs operation manual was presented, discussed and finalized among the team.
This particular document is going to be the main guide throughout the creation and the establishment of the national HUBs.
- A group visit was organized to the Ruffino winery, one of the most recognizable Toscany based brands worldwide, in order to receive a first-hand feedback on their apprenticeship program and, of course, to take a peek into the backstage of this historic establishment.
- A series of good practice presentations, task reports and discussions on the project’s next steps that boosted the workflow and kept everyone up to date.
Special thanks to the Regione Toscana apprentices who provided us with some great culinary creations and a great hospitality.
After the meeting was over, they were all awarded certificates of attendance and special gift bags. It was a symbolic and adherent to the project’s ideas move, inspired by our exceptional host Regione Toscana, that maximized the meeting’s efficiency and quality.
Apart from the above, it was the team bonding, both inside and outside the official meetings, that really kept the team going, got us to know each other even better, and gave a great push in order for the project’s goals to be fulfilled at their fullest in the future!
Until then.. Arrivederci!
