Last project meeting and Final Conference in Aveiro

On the 3rd and 4th of October, the last transnational partner meeting and the final conference were held in Aveiro, Portugal. The coordinator of the project – the vocational school AEVA, hosted the representatives from each partner organisation to revise the tasks and the achievements of the two-year project.
The meeting was a great opportunity to look back at all the steps taken together to plan future collaborations and projects. The #SenPower project has enriched partners’ expertise and know-how about entrepreneurial teaching and special educational needs.



The final conference was held in the conference hall of the school and it has been divided in two parallel sessions: the presentation of the project results and the implementation of some of the Senpower training activities developed with SEN learners. The director of the AEVA vocational school, Mr Jorge Castro opened the session with a welcoming speech, followed by the project manager Mrs Ana Ribeiro. A guest speaker from the Madalena group of Schools, Mrs Tania Pires, talked about learning entrepreneurship and diversity. Each member of the consortium could present the work done within the project and the training activities implemented. Teachers, trainers, psychologists and staff working with SEN young adults attended the conference.
