Work Package.2. LOCAL STAFF TRAINING FOR SYSTEM MANAGEMENT, MAINTENANCE AND DEVELOPMENT

The set up of the platform implies Know how and skill transfer to local staff (administrative staff/IT staff/researchers) and the setting up of collaborative relationship with key officials are a major result  of the project.  Training is held at different level:

Administrative staff: have been provided with basic tools and competences on data collection, management and information dissemination towards students and graduates. Student offices/secretariats have been thus trained to manage and develop the HEN-GEAR system and to guarantee system sustainability beyond project life.  Training has also allowed administrative staff to become the most powerful channel of dissemination among students (or graduating students) for project purposes and benefits.  IT staff was trained on main issues concerning system development and provided with competence and tools aimed at further managing and developing the system locally once the migration process from AlmaLaurea premises to local Armenian hardware is completed. A training seminar was also devoted to  academics: professors, researchers, scholars belonging to Moroccan partner universities were involved on the issue of strategies and methodologies to be followed in order to exploit the database information, to take advantage of it for the education of policy makers and to promote a culture of "Internal Quality Assurance" in the Armenian academic environment.
