CHRONOLOGICAL LIST OF TANGIBLE RESULTS

10/2014: SLL Project Management Plan containing the contact details of the partner schools, detailed work plans for the six work packages (each package plan will be developed by the partner who is responsible for coordinating activities within that package), Work Packages, Gantt Chart, Ground Rules, List of Results and Outcomes-Gant Chart, Internal Communication Plan. During the implementation of the partnership to this manual management will be attached various documents made at the partnership’s level (evaluation questionnaires, results of evaluation activities, progress and final reports, minutes of project meetings, transnational dissemination tools etc. All the documents specific to the project‘s management and also the project’s results will be posted in a common area of work (eg can be used www.dropbox.com). So, all the documents will always be available to both the coordinator and partners. So all the partners have access to information on project management and can inspect the information when needed, thus ensuring transparency in the partnership. We will realise the first newsletter at partnership level which will contain general information about the project.

02/2015: Dissemination tools: project logo, flyer/leaflet, poster, project site. Leaflets and posters are simple but effective ways to provide an overview of project. Logo is a graphical element that facilitates identification of the project by target groups. Project website sections: Home, Partners, About project, Meetings, Activities, Results/outcomes, Photo Gallery.

02/2015: First project meeting and follow-up documents (meeting report evaluation, minutes, Newsletter no. 2.). At partnership level will be developed five newsletters; they will contain both information about the project meetings and information about local activities undertaken by partners between project meetings. Newsletters also help to keep people informed about project’s activities. Publications should be easy to read, avoid jargon and be attractive to readers.

02/2015: First module from the Training Program for students “The teaching of Life Skills with Literacy” (A Training Manual): “Reading Strategies”.

05/2015: The second project meeting and follow-up documents (meeting report evaluation, minutes, Newsletter no. 3)

We will carry out a SWOT analysis at the partnership level.
