Tomorrow is an interesting, social and visionary day. TAKKCareerBooster (Erasmus+ project) team is present in Pirkanmaan vientipäivä, in Technopolis, Tampere. This is a case, of all those days, when we combine forces across the organisations – this time between Tampere Chamber of Commerce (TCC) and Tampere Adult Education Centre (TAKK).

The basic idea of TAKKCareerBooster project is to develop competence in different European countries, directly in the workplaces during on-the-job periods. The participants of the periods look for new ideas, concepts, methodologies and skills. The participants can go to these periods on their own or as pairs of two people, one from TAKK and one from a TCC member organisation. We prefer the twosome trips, as the learning across the organisations is so much more effective than learning one-by-one. Learning across here simply refers to exchanging ideas between the two people, discussing the experience and learning from each other – learning together.

Now, all we can do, is to wait until late May to hear the result. How exciting. Continue reading →
