On 8 October, Qrios and its partners from Cyprus, the Netherlands, Northern Macedonia, Portugal and Sweden presented the results of their Erasmus+ project ReTraVaSSEV during an international dissemination event in Brussels. The European cooperation resulted in two curricula that produced 18 tools and associated validation tools that can help teachers train soft skills for vulnerable learners. More information about the project can be found on this website, you can also download all the tools. Both the manual and the validation tools are presented in six languages: Dutch, English, Greek, Macedonian, Portuguese and Swedish.

The day after the dissemination event, all participants experienced a European day in Brussels, with a visit to the European Parliament, the House of European History and the Parlamentarium.

On the second day of this closing event the Belgian hosts organised the event’s final meeting. The project members looked back upon the dissemination event, the final versions of the manual and the validation tools, the local multiplier events (workshops for trainers), financial arrangements and the project’s communication. Moreover, some preliminary ideas for a new project were discussed. After a joint lunch in a typical Belgian café a cultural tour through Brussels was programmed, including the tasting of Belgian specialities such as beer and chocolate.
