On June 29th and 30th all the partners of the CASTWOMAN project met online for the final meeting of the project. The partners presented an overview of the piloting results and discussed the future opportunities for dissemination and use of project outcomes.
Pilot testing of Castwoman products
The Pilot testing of Castwoman products was held in Spain, Portugal and Turkey during June 2021. The results of the pilot tests were analyzed and tested by 45 VET trainers in total, who explored and assessed the role models and the digital toolkit and shared their comments with us. In general terms, the feedback was very positive and the products were considered appropriate, so it encouraged us to continue working in this sense.
CASTWOMAN Promotional video
A promotional video about the Castwoman project has been launched. The video is available in four languages - English, Spanish, Portuguese and Turkish.
