Local Piloting in Spain – Workshops

In spring 2023, Think Social partner from Spain, DRAMBLYS, organised local piloting with 14 participants.

The piloting took place on the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th of March, 5 hours each day, 20 hours in total of face to face training with a commitment of participants to continue with online activities and training that we foreseen might take another 10 hours.

The piloting was initially scheduled in November, however DRAMBLYS didn’t managed to gather the group of 15 people. Therefore they had to postpone to 2023. The piloting was planned as an intensive training programme, which required a lot of dedication from the participants, but at the same time, it facilitated an interesting and engaging learning experience.

On day 6 and 7 DRAMBLYS focused on the training materials of the Upskilling programme, while on day 8 the group had a chance to visit a Cofederation of Entrepreneurs/business of Albacete and talk to the SHERPA training programme coordinator. During the last day we had a guest speaker – a president of AJE ALBACETE (Association of Young Entrepreneurs of Albacete) and worked in groups generating social business ideas and solutions to the emerging local social challenges.

As per general feedback obtained, participants enjoyed the learning experience. One the parts that they seem to enjoy most is peer learning and a possibility to exchange experiences. Sustainability was another topic pointed out by the participants.
A more detailed feedback is gathered in the testimonials.
