Have you ever felt confused about your role with the young people you work with? Do they see you as a coach? Mentor? Tutor? Can you work with groups, but find it difficult to work with individuals? Have you never had a tetralemma? YES?
Then this course is for you! In several areas of the Erasmus+:Youth in Action programme, youth workers and trainers are increasingly required to be able not only to work with groups of young people but, also, to accompany individuals through the various learning, professional and personal development processes on offer. Although one-to-one dialogue may seem like an obvious and natural form of communication, for youth work practitioners it has also become a professional requirement. Therefore many youth workers feel they need training in order to appropriately support young people through their individual development and learning processes.
The main aim of this course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work in a One 2 One relationship with young people in order to support their learning and development processes. Within this, we seek:
-To explore what “supporting learning” means in one-to-one relationships;
-To practice different one-2-one learning support methods and approaches;
-To develop the skill of initiating & supporting self-reflection about learning;
-To reflect on how supporting learning individually and in groups complement and influence each other;
-To exchange about various types of contexts (from local youth work to international mobilities) and approaches such as mentoring, coaching and tutoring.
In order to provide the possibility for participants to experience being supported individually in their own learning process, the training course is extended by One 2 One talks with the trainers both before and after the course. Each participant will be accompanied by the same trainer throughout:
-Before the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype
-During the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk
-After the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype
Apply here until 13 November 2018!
