A provocative opportunity to take part in a training, to explore non-formal learning, to improve the quality of youth work and to experiment practices, new tools and techniques.
The main theme of this training is to identify challenges youth workers and educators face in their daily life as youth workers and educators.
The general aim of the training course:
The main aim of this training is to identify challenges youth workers/educators face in daily life with their youngsters. The purpose is to develop competences, based on the ETS competence model for youth workers. The programme will follow the needs of the participants according to the planned activities of the programme; at the same time it will provoke the participants to enlarge their own tools, based on the way they experience their learning.
– Why the ETS competence model?
– Because it is a model which supports youth workers providing orientation and guidance.
– Why Replay?
Have you ever thought of a situation in your life, which you would like to replay? Not necessarily because you wished to change it, but because you would really like to examine all the details and probably to see yourself from different perspectives. Since time-machines are not invented yet, we thought of providing a training space with the opportunity to playback situations that often happen in professional life.
Specific Objectives of this training course:
– To identify and recognize challenges when working with youth
– To explore the ETS competences model for youth workers
– To provide practical tools to be used by youth workers when providing educational activities
– To recognize the educational value of non-formal activities and empowerment of youth workers
– To provide the space for different actors of education to exchange experiences and good practices
The general approach is based on the principles of non-formal education and strongly supports reflection and self-directed learning. The programme will include many different activities, discussions, open workshops to encourage critical thinking and personal contributions. A strong focus will be put on Design thinking as a method for creativity and problem-solving. English will be the working language.
Who can apply?
– Educators, like youth workers, youth leaders, teachers, who are directly working with youth and/or educational organisations, with varying level of experience in educational activities (in any organisational role; volunteers, mentors, facilitating, organizing, supporting young people, etc..)
– Motivated to share their work experience and challenges
– Actively seeking to improve their toolbox and enrich it with new approaches
– Available to take an active part in the whole or full duration of the training course
