The SAGA Learning approach and curriculum can serve as a basis for the rest of the project as it developed the overall learning approach, learning objectives, skills and competence matrix, curriculum and assessment methods based upon an evidence- and research-based analysis related to the core skills and competences. During the research we analysed the project context and scanned the participating countries for relevant examples of social enterprises in the targeted food, gastronomic and culinary sector, and we mapped the training landscape.
The SAGA learning programme underwent a double innovation loop for validation, first by an internal evaluation by partners focused on review of the content and functionality of the learning environment, and a 2nd loop with a wider sample of participants who went through the whole learning programme. Partners developed country reports based on the feedback. Finally, the aggregated analysis and report provided recommendations for improvements of content, assessment method,
support materials and platform.
