Bulgarian multiplier event

The Bulgarian multiplier event in the frame of CIT4VET project was organized on 9th July 2020 in Ramada by Wyndham Sofia City Center, shortly after the pilot versions of the platform and products were finalized and released for testing, considering the possibility of tightening the anti-epidemic measures in September and the impossibility of holding the event then.
In addition to the detailed presentation of the project, the partners, the implemented activities and created products, the event was a priceless opportunity for a direct meeting with representatives of the target group and a demonstration of the different types of materials and resources in the platform.
The discussions showed that unfortunately, intercultural learning is not yet a priority in the education system in Bulgaria, which makes access to appropriate resources and materials not only difficult but also very time consuming. Most trainers don’t have the time and opportunity to dig for materials suitable for integration of learners from different backgrounds. Given all this in mind we think the multiplier event was a successful one because the news about CIT4VET project were spread among stakeholders who will benefit from it in the future and disseminate it among their contact network in this way reaching sustainability and added value.
The clearest sign that CIT4VET products were well received and will be used in the future is that despite the inconveniences caused by the additional health measures and restrictions, many people responded to our invitation to attend the multiplier event and participated actively in it.
