On 27 April 2018, the Textile College organised a dissemination seminar on its Colouring course that was updated with consultancy and financial support from the EU project and started in September 2017.
The objective of the seminar was to present first results, discuss lessons learnt, inform the wider public, network with the corporate sector and identify next steps, both regarding cooperation with the project and the world of business.
Participants were trainers, students from several colleges, representatives from textile enterprises (as agreed with the Ministry of Textile) and involved experts, a total of 25 people.
Presentations covered a sophisticated and interactive high-quality content (Articulate 360) developed according to the new curricula, and the current priorities in project implementation.
Non-Key Junior Expert Çhary Choşyýew moderated the discussions of three work groups on identifying priorities. A lively debate started, exceeded the planned time budget.
As a result, a consensus emerged on the following:
- new training programs should cover environment protection issues in enterprises;
- a training course should focus on occupation safety and health issues,
- the dialogue between education and business should become more institutionalised through a sector council.
In the end, participants mentioned that the organisation and implementation of the workshop are appropriate for problem-solving, networking and planning and should be used more often in the future. The project team agrees.
