17 17 Assessment of the mobility actions OPIR - Conférence finale du 18 février 2011 STRONG POINTS: High level of motivation of trainers, trainees and companies High level of cooperation between trainers from both parties Willingness to go on with the experience WEAK POINTS: Methods of assessment Mobility should cover a longer period Mobility should not be simultaneous

18 18 Assessment of the mobility actions OPIR - Conférence finale du 18 février 2011 The average level of satisfaction with the mobility experience 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

19 19 Assessment of the mobility actions OPIR - Conférence finale du 18 février 2011 “A better global link between OPIR coordination and mobility is desirable” “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” “In some cases, a tailor-made OPIR group was created; not the OPIR goal, but an overall sucess” “Reduce paper-work! Too much burden in Learning Agreement” “Avoid scattering the trainess geographically” “The hosting centre wasn’t aware of documentation procedures” “It was difficult for our system to adjust to the OPIR calendar requirements” “Deeper discussion about assessment procedures is required before mobility”

20 20 Lessons learnt – Assessment by the competent bodies OPIR - Conférence finale du 18 février Key activity of the job: optimum starting point of the joint work 2.Integration of incoming trainees: very difficult 3.Joint work fosters insight on the own work and induces openess to other qualifications 4.The definiton of a common unit might be easier with the collaboration of the training centres; training centres and competent institutions need to work together 5.Easy agreement on assessment criteria, not so much on assessment methods 6.Mutual trust must be reinforced for the success of joint work 7.Linguistic preparation is necessary; language has not been as big an obstacle as was thought at the beginning
