Partner Briefing No 40 - January 2003
1) 2003 TIRISANO FELLOWSHIP
PROGRAMME – APPLICANTS FOR PHASE FOUR
Botswana recently expressed a strong
interest in the fellowship and the possibilities of participating
in the 2003 programme. Whilst discussions are at an early stage it
would be helpful if you could let us know if you agree to be considered
for one or both countries.
The closing date for completed applications is Monday, 31st March 2003. The fellows will be interviewed and the selection agreed in liaison with the South African national Department of Education and the National Business Initiative, Colleges Collaboration Fund, by the end of April. Final selection and matching processes will be completed by the week beginning 12 May 2003.
The mentor from the UK selected colleges must be able to visit South Africa for one week departing 28 June. Principals and mentors will be invited to a pre-departure briefing in London on 19 June 2003. The fellows’ placement in the UK will run from the last week in August to the end of November in 2003.
A new brochure with information and experiences taken
from the third year of the programme will be circulated to all applicants
and will also be available separately if desired. Please email Daniel
Smith to request your copy.
CEDEFOP (Centre Européen pour développement de la formation professionelle / European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training) is a European Union funded programme that organises study tours for people involved in vocational and education training. These tours take place in a variety of European countries (EU and non-EU countries) and normally last for five days. Participants receive a grant towards the costs of taking part in their chosen study visit. The aim of the visits is to share knowledge and best practice in specific areas of vocational training.
The deadline for the first semester 2003 has already passed. But we are looking for applicants for the second semester 2003. These courses are detailed in the second part of the attached catalogue.
Applicants should be involved in vocational and education training. Previous participants have come from a variety of areas including teaching, inspection, policy making, accreditation, employment, trade unions and research.
Applicants must be resident in the United Kingdom, but do not necessarily have to be British citizens.
An application will be deemed ineligible if the
applicant has taken part in a CEDEFOP visit in the last two years
or is due to take part in a visit in the first semester of 2003.
Applications must be received by Thursday 27th February 2003.
