assessment of the mobility actions1
Assessment of themobilityactions

The averagelevel of satisfactionwiththemobilityexperience is good: 7’6/10

It is noteworthy that the evaluation methods used by the partner institution have received a significantly lower assessment than the ones used at the home institution

assessment of the mobility actions2
Assessment of themobilityactions

“Reduce paper-work! Too much burden in Learning Agreement”

“The training centres should be kept informed during all phases of the project”

“Learning activities in the TC require a minimum level of the foreign language both for trainers and trainees”

“Avoid scattering the trainess geographically”

“A better global link between OPIR coordination and mobility is desirable”

“Deeper discussion about assessment procedures is required before mobility”

“It was difficult for our system to adjust to the OPIR calendar requirements”

“The hosting centre wasn’t aware of documentation procedures”

“In some cases, a tailor-made OPIR group was created; not the OPIR goal, but an overall sucess”

lessons learnt assessment by the competent bodies
Lessonslearnt – Assessmentbythe competent bodies

Integration of incomingtrainees: verydifficult

Jointworkfostersinsight on theownwork and inducesopeness to otherqualifications

Keyactivityof thejob: optimumstartingpoint of thejointwork

The definiton of a common unit might be easierwiththecollaboration of thetraining centres; training centres and competent institutionsneed to worktogether

Linguistic preparation is necessary; language has not been as big an obstacle as was thought at the beginning

Easyagreement on assessmentcriteria, not so much on assessmentmethods

Mutual trust must be reinforced for the success of joint work
