TYPE OF ORGANISATION

TEAM4Excellence (T4E) is an NGO founded in 2017. T4E is managed by a single tier board, chaired by a President and headquartered in the city of Constanta, South-East Romania. T4E involves 15+ young people and adults, including managers, technicians, admin staff, teachers, trainers and researchers.

SCOPE OF WORK

We improve the socio-economic conditions and all aspects of the quality of life through education, research and consulting to address societal challenges. We produce and transfer knowhow through cooperation with domestic and international social, academic and business partners.

We are active in adult work by promoting adult learners and trainers’ mobility, voluntarism, diversity, equality, tolerance, involvement, participation, engagement and empowerment and by helping these to gain additional knowledge, attitudes, transversal competences and skills.

The objectives are:

  • Providing learning opportunities and career advice to improve social inclusion, development and employability of adult learners.
  • Equipping trainers with key competences and skills to foster personal and professional development of young people, adults and professionals.
  • Fostering local and international collaboration between adult learners, trainers and non-vocational adult education organisations.
  • Promoting the recognition of adult training, lifelong learning and non-formal education.

In achieving our goals and objectives, we have set out our core values on three pillars: professionalism, service of stakeholders and collaborative partnership. As such, by professionalism we understand integrity, ethical standards, confidentiality, strategic perspective and independent view. The second pillar means for us an orientation towards assisting stakeholders to improve their performance and productivity. Our third pillar of values is related to creating a balanced collaboration platform for people and organisations and policy makers.

We have embedded our values into the organisational culture and structure, by adhering to the principles of UN Global Compact and the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. The set values materialise into our ethics in day-by-day activities.

At T4E, we seek to contribute to a sustainable future by involving in the personal and professional development of people, in order to address the need for a competent workforce of the economy. In this regard, we believe that adult women, people with fewer opportunities including NEETs and those with the risk of marginalisation, migrants and those coming from migrant families are a valuable pool for adult talents.

CAPABILITIES

Guided by the strategic intent of promoting the best management practices in Romania, T4E has become member and national partner of the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM). For the past 25+ years, EFQM is the repository of the Excellence Model which they have refined and incrementally adapted to stakeholder needs. As national partner, T4E has access to a global network of national partners and, through those, to about 30,000 organisations in Europe and many more globally. The national networking of T4E includes public institutions such as schools, universities, local and central authorities, and private firms of various sizes and from several industries. We cooperate with these in long term relationships and as project-based associated partners.

In addition, T4E has access to a wide range of good management practices shared by organisations from the Excellence Network, and to numerous high-value materials, such as: training materials, generic assessment tools, examples of management documents, user guides, member newsletters, articles, white papers, good practice visits to members and periodic webinars.

Through the professional membership of members, T4E has access to a tremendous amount of high quality resources from UK and US organisations, including PMI, CIMA, IAM, IMarEST, AMBA, Energy Institute, ScienceDirect, Web of Knowledge and CMI (Management Direct, the largest Management Portal). In addition, T4E members are members of John Maxwell’s university of leadership, which has dedicated materials and teaching methods suitable for adult learners, trainers and non-vocational adult education organisations.

In terms of physical resources, T4E benefits from resources shared by the founding members and their enterprises. Available resources include offices, conference room, ICT tools including computers, servers, coding software, etc. Also, T4E has entered a collaboration with a professional accounting firm (C&P) to ensure financial legal compliance and sustainable operations. T4E is being independently audited for regulatory compliance.

T4E has access to the competences (organizational knowledge, skills and experience of key personnel) and resources (e.g. processes and physical resources) to carry out projects (including those EU financed) that contribute to development of adult learners, trainers and non-vocational adult education organisations.
