The objective of the European Mentoring in Social Care (EMiSC) training material is to create a ‘common foundation’ in social care training across the EU, so that all EU care services are based on UNCRPD principles and provided by staff that understand and follow these principles. The goal is to support first line staff members in social care by setting up mentoring programme and giving mentoring support via a well-trained mentor to every newcomer or staff member in need of some “refreshment” training.  The training material is available in 8 languages and exists mainly of a formal curriculum, a mentor training course, a train the training course and a mentoring assessment tool, to assess the mentors. The training material was the result of the EC Erasmus+ KA2 funded 3-year project EMiSC (2015-2018). This is the Universal EMISC training in English.

Assessing your Collaboration: a Self-Evaluation Tool

by Admin EASPD - Friday, 12 April 2019, 11:56 AM
 


Description

A self-evaluation tool was developed to assist existing and forming groups. The tool is a self-assessment exercise allowing groups to rate their collaboration on key factors. Key factors examined here include goals, communication, sustainability, evaluation, political climate, leadership, community development and understanding community. With this tool, collaborative groups identified strong factors and challenging factors, that is, factors that need to be worked on. The identification of the challenge factors facing the group can assist in the development of strategies to address these issues, thus allowing the group to move forward and accomplish their goals. In all cases, the self-evaluation tool can be used to strengthen the collaborative group. The following is a description of the Collaboration Check-list.
