University of Bucharest
Today is Theme Day at the City Daily Photo community, a monthly event that happens the first day of every month, when all participating blogs will post a picture that relates to the theme day’s description. Today’s theme is: Statues. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
I had great plans for this theme day. I was to go and photograph some statues that would fit in both with theme day and with the May Day aka International Workers’ Day (which celebrates the legal establishment of the 8-hour working day, something that we today hold as a given but which wasn’t always so). I know a few statues in Bucharest that can be used to express both these ideas. But … I got stuck in the house with a bad cold so instead of what I planned I’m giving you Atlas, sitting among flowers in Cişmigiu Park. The only thing I’m not sure about is if this qualifies as a statue or it’s better defined as a sculpture.

Do you want to study in a country which has a bit of everything – sandy beaches, wild forests, medieval castles and… vampires? That last one is a joke, but if you fancy all the rest, then maybe consider studying in Romania. This diverse country is full of historic interest, beautiful natural landscapes, friendly people, and a rich combination of European cultures. And, while vampires didn’t really exist here, those with an interest in the field may join the throngs of tourists keen to visit sites such as Bran Castle, considered the real-life inspiration for the spooky home of Bram Stocker’s Dracula.

The main aim of the project "Coach in VET (Vocational Education Training)" was to develop guidelines for the tool coaching in VET and to make them accessible to the systems in the partner countries. Eleven European organisations cooperate with the respective national networks in order to create a web-based tool for the knowledge management device Coach in VET.

It contains information about the theoretical background of the topic and many methods that can be used in coaching processes in VET. The website of the project was established. It contains general information about the project, methods that can be used in coaching processes in VET, presentations about the theoretical background from the partner organisations, minutes from the project meetings and learners' diaries from participants. The handbook "Coach in VET" is also available for downloading on the website. In addition the "Coach in VET" CD was produced, which include the web-based tool "Coach in VET" and the handbook.
