General framework

General framework

  • Application deadline 19th Feb. 2010 (?)

  • On-line application / Similar to PVs & CSs

    • .pdf: save the working form to your computer

    • Once finalized, coordinator submits to the system

    • Follow carefully the instructions: send copies of the application form to the partners

  • Application = filled in together, same application for all

  • Evaluation of the partnership is done by the NA of the coordinating school


General framework1

General framework

  • Each school leaves the application /copy of application to its own NA

  • Send the application by post / snail mail before the deadline

  • Incomplete applications or applications turned in after the deadline are not evaluated!

  • Date and original signatures (and stamps, if applicable) are crucial


Writing the application

Writing the application

  • Work as a team across the partnership

  • Good idea to identify the lead writer for the whole application

  • Work as a team in each school, but make sure there is at least one person as “first-contact”.

  • An application can’t be rushed


Writing the application1

Writing the application

  • Set “internal”deadline for the application (earlier than 19th February)

  • Allow time for printing, signing and postage

  • Take note of possible national priorities

  • Complete every section, answer to every questions


Keep in mind

Keep in mind…

  • Application is your ticket to funding

  • Make sure your application is

    • Explicit and clear

    • Completed in full

  • No one is able to read your thoughts

    • Ideas need to be spelled out


Keep in mind1

Keep in mind…

  • No need to full fill all the programme priorities

    • better to focus clearly on something

  • Topic & theme is of interest of everyone

  • The age of pupils (if involved): adequate exercise for their age

  • End product, at least one jointly done


Keep in mind2

Keep in mind…

  • YOU be working with the project: balance of topics & themes = make sure you can hold the pieces together

  • Think as detailed as possible

  • The work programme covers both years (is tentative, can be changed later)

  • Answer all the questions


Good application

Good application

  • Clear objectives and realistic expected outcomes

  • A clear and coherent workplan

  • Pupil oriented partnerships: clearly write the role of pupils

  • Plans for ongoing evaluation

  • Dissemination of the project


Advice

Advice

  • Written guidance

  • Ask advice from your local expert / colleague

  • Ask advice from experienced Comenius school

  • NA (?)


Evaluation

Evaluation

  • Eligibility check

    • Not late, the signature, no missing parts (consult the section I. checklist on the application)

    • In every NA

  • Quality evaluation

    • In coordinating school’s NA


Evaluation1

Evaluation

  • Done in the NA of the coordinating country

  • In Bilateral partnerships in both countries

  • Using 2 external experts (experienced!)

  • Using standard evaluation forms (available for everyone, NAs website)


Main problems in the applications

Main problems in the applications

  • No answer in some questions / not answered to the question

  • The answer is too general

  • The planning is unrealistic or/and over ambitious


Comenius programme grant applications evaluation process dissemintation of activities

  • The work programme: not only project meetings, but local activities

  • The role of partners is unclear or unbalanced

  • Involvement of pupils / teachers

  • Evaluation / dissemination
