6th Coordination meeting in Palma de Mallorca

On the 2nd of March 2022 SIDFOOT partners gathered for a meeting and realised the crucial point in which they stand. As the pandemic restrictions were lifted the project had to recover the delays accumulated on producing some outputs.

Rafael Muela, from Fundación Real Betis Balompié (FRBB), as Project Director informed that that all the Modules were already produced in English and ready to be uploaded to the e-Learning platform in relation to the creation of the figure of the “Community Football Driver”.

Partners chose to discuss the delivery options for the course. The chosen option involved the combination of face-to-face sessions (organizing a workshop at the beginning of the course and another at the end in each country) and online training, accessing the participants to the course in an asynchronous way in a timeframe given. A tutor would be at the disposition of participants to solve any kind of doubts. In this way, the translations of the Modules would be done in advance in order to facilitate the engagement of learners not proficient.

Partners will translate the Modules into Spanish, Romanian, Danish and German, before to start the training period. EFDN will be helping to WSC with the translation into German.

It was decided that the training course will be delivered in each country from the beginning of April to the end of May 2022. In order to get the final certificate, participants will have to obtain a minimum grade of 7 in a scale up to 10 in each Module, but given a second chance for those who fail a module in the first attempt.

All partners agreed on organizing the piloting phase according to their needs and reality, supported by the stakeholders operating in their territories and engaged in previous phases of SIDFOOT. The idea is to engage in this piloting phase the maximum number possible of participants in the training program, the future “Community Football Driver”. Of course, these participants will be using and testing the SIDFOOT self-assessment tool.

Alejandro Garcia-Mas as co-leader of the SIDFOOT self-assessment tool presented a PPT with the key points,ideas, methodology and plans for designing and developing this output in the next weeks in order to be ready for being used by the participants at the end of the training period and also, and most important, during the piloting phase.

It was decided that not all the Modules contents will be evaluated/embedded in the tool, but it will include questions related to all Modules except 5, 6 and 8, so only those which will generate impacts able to be evaluated in the field by CFDs.Partners will design the questions to be included in the tool following the guidelines provided by P1/P9.The idea was to include around 5 questions per Module in average.

María López Puchades presented a PPT containing current situation, progresses, pending issues and next steps regarding dissemination activities. A navigation through the SIDFOOT website and its different sections was performed, including the Microsite of best practices and the e-Learning platform. All partners were encouraged to be more active on dissemination till the end of the project.

Rafael Muela confirmed that EACEA approved very recently the request for an extension of 6 months, so the project will officially end at the end of December 2022. In addition teams explained the current situation and next steps regarding management, budgeting and reporting, particularly concerning the launch of the fourth financial report in April 2022, which will be covering nine months, from July 2021 to March 2022, both included.

Michelle Maxwell exposed a PPT containing current situation, progresses, pending issues and next steps regarding quality assurance and monitoring activities from internal perspective.The external evaluation did the same from the external perspective.Both of them were fully complementary.

Francesc Xavier Ponseti exposed a short document that UIB developed for supporting and guiding the work of the CFD on the field. This is a complementary output not foreseen in the application.He also showed a dissemination video coming from another EU funded project in order to inspire the team to do something similar before the end of the project. Partners agreed on the need of having another face-to-face meeting before starting the piloting phase with the CFD trained.
