These days we´ve met in Glasgow (Scotland) to celebrate our 8th Network of Networks (NoN) annual meeting, the first in person after the pandemic and the end of our KA3 project (www.partnersin.vet). Despite the “B word” and the challenge that it represents to keep our strategic plan in place without external funding, the great amount of international coordinators, teachers and other staff from VET colleges in our 5 networks present in Glasgow, the fact that our Scottish partners, City of Glasgow College and New College Lanarkshire, are this year hosts and the results presented by the different thematic working groups about their work until now and their future plans, are the definite proof that our willingness for cooperation in greater than some adverse external circumstances and the commitment and engagement of the colleges towards NoN is strong enough to keep and deepen our work together.
Each of the working groups (innovation, internationalisation, sustainability, entrepreneurship and work based learning) had the opportunity to work together during the event and share their results with the Steering Committee and the other working groups. In the next months, they will keep going and the SC will monitor the results regularly.
Next chance to meet in person again in the framework of NoN will be during the next annual meeting, to be hosted this time in The Netherlands from the 6th to the 8th of November, counting this time also with the presence of our VET leaders.
