ACTIVITIES

The Plenary meetings are held twice a year in those countries hosting the EU presidency. Work packages of the network focus on the key areas of

  • Career Management Skills (Work Package 1)
  • Widening Access (Work Package 2)
  • Co-operation and Co-ordination Mechanisms (Work Package 3)
  • Quality Assurance and Evidence Based Practice (Work Package 4)

NCGE hosted the meeting of Work Package 4 – Quality Assurance and Evidence Based Practice in March 2012. Fourteen Member State countries were represented by 23 participants at the three day meeting held in the Department of Education and Skills, Dublin. This working group was co-ordinated and lead by the Hungarian representative Dr Tibor Bors Borbély-Pecze with Dr Deirdre Hughes as the external consultant and facilitator for the group.

During the ELGPN Work programme 2011-12, a principal aim was to produce a Resource Kit to support policy review and peer learning processes both within and between countries. A draft framework for quality assurance and evidence based practice was developed by the group for inclusion in the proposed ELGPN Resource Kit.
