International and National G.I.V.E. activities at MCAST

October 2022 was a busy month for the MCAST G.I.V.E. Team. On the 20th and 21st October 2022 the MCAST G.I.V.E. Team hosted representatives from all the partners at the MCAST Main Campus in Paola. This activity consisted of two days of hard work and valuable contributions from the G.I.V.E. partners. This Transnational Project Meeting – the 3rd of the project thus far – the G.I.V.E. consortium discussed the finalisation of WP3 and the G.I.V.E. platform being developed as part of WP5. A lot of the meeting was dedicated to the ongoing WP4, of which MCAST is the Lead.

The Transnational Project Meeting was a mix of presentations and workshops which allowed for everyone to give their feedback and contributions in an interactive manner. Participants in the Transnational Project Meeting highlighted the importance of meeting in person to continue expanding our understanding of each other’s institutions, as well as to maintain increasingly pleasant relations between the many individuals working on the G.I.V.E. project.

The two-day activity ended with an evening visit to the capital city of Valletta, a famous UNESCO World Heritage site. Maltese people strongly believe that food brings people together, so it was fortunate that the end of our meeting coincided with the Valletta Local Food Festival at the Valletta Design Cluster.

Soon after our partners left Malta, the MCAST G.I.V.E. Team set straight to work on a series of Stakeholder Meetings which took the form of Focus Groups, held on the 25th, 26th and 27th October 2022. Theses Stakeholder Meetings formed part of WP3 and WP6, and involved a mixture of representatives from schools and VET institutions, NGOs, private companies and national Commissions and Associations.

The Stakeholder Meetings held as part of WP6 also involved representatives from our target vulnerable groups, or parents of children from our target vulnerable groups. In particular, we were happy to host one of the founders of Survivors Malta and MCAST alumni, Mr Jacob Cachia who gave us great contribution on good practices for student mobility in cases where individuals require tailored accommodations to be made in line with the student’s needs.
