C-MAP: Helping team leaders and managers to improve the performance and productivity of teams and individuals.

What is C-MAP?

C-MAP is a project co-funded by Erasmus+ program under the KA202 – Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training that aims to aid team leaders, mangers and organisations to improve the performance of teams and individuals utilising a new coaching methodology called C-MAPs.

The project will help VET teachers and trainers to enable team leaders and managers in Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal and Bulgaria to implement effective work-based coaching, applying the intellectual outputs (IO), developed under the C-MAP project (January 2020 – December 2021).

It is expected that over 600 individuals and organisations will benefit from involvement with the project, being directly made aware of the project’s results and impact with the aim of impacting on a further 5,000 indirectly via publicity and dissemination activities.
