Erasmus+ KA1 CHANGE LIVES, OPEN MINDS Training Programme 2018

Erasmus+ KA1 CHANGE LIVES, OPEN MINDS Training Programme 2018

The Creative Entrepreneurs Academy at the Centre for Creative Practices is part of a collaboration of three educational organisation that includes alongside us M-Powered from Poland and PlinEu from Poland.  We share one common value in that we believe that education is fundamental to empowering the current and future population of the European Union and to promoting growth, employability, social equity and inclusion.

As such we have come together to offer those working or interested in lifelong learning, continuous development and education a series of courses via the Erasmus+ KA1 programme.

As our common motto we have chosen CHANGE, based on one of the main goals of the Erasmus+ programme – “Change lives, open minds”.

Our educational offer is focused on adult and youth professional and personal development. We offer 13 different 5-day long courses aimed at training the trainers and individuals who are looking to complement their existing skillsets.

Our courses cover Creative Thinking, Diversity and Inclusion, Entrepreneurship, Leadership development and Management.

They will be run in scenic and inspiring locations in a number of countries throughout the European Union over the course of the next 2 ½ years.

Along with the excellent educational offer and state-of-the-art teaching methodologies we include in our programmes outdoor activities allowing our participants to experience the local culture and nature.

We also offer professional support helping our client organisations to prepare and submit their Erasmus Plus KA1 applications.

We encourage you to explore the power of education and personal development, to share good practices among your colleagues and co-workers, and bring back knowledge to your communities, organisations and eco-systems.

We challenge you to inspire and get inspired, to change lives and open minds.

Please get in touch!

Decision making, after the fact

Oh it’s so easy to be wise after the event or so they say….. not saying this about Seth but as we see critics, people, workers etc are eager to pick apart complex decisions made by others.

Prime Ministers, CEOs, even football coaches are apparently serially incompetent. If they had only listened to folks who knew precisely what they should have done, they would have been far better off.

Of course, these critics have a great deal of trouble making less-complex decisions in their own lives. They carry the wrong credit cards, buy the wrong stocks, invest in the wrong piece of real estate.

Cancelled

All those meetings you have tomorrow–they were just cancelled. The boss wants you to do something productive instead.

What would you do with the time? What would you initiate?

If it’s better than those meetings were going to be, why not cancel them?

This is not just about the NOW but the FUTURE – it takes time to build relationships but those relationships are only worth building if there is an end result that is more important than doing something else.

Who are we writing for?

who are we writing for, is it an audience or a machine?

We seem to have lost the art of writing, certainly the art of writing for humans to read.  As Seth Godin writes today on his blog post ‘More and more, we create our work to be read by a machine’ and he’s right, we have lost that power to inform in a language that we can understand. We either write for 140 characters, 550 characters or something that can be read by a spider.
