Venue: Bonn, Germany
Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – DE, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Switzerland
Application deadline: 20th May 2018
Newcomer training for Youth Exchanges in Erasmus+. How should the project be designed? How can I start a project? How can I find the right partners? What has got to be considered for the planing, preparation, application and implementation?
During this training you will put your ideas into practice. Together with participants from 6 different countries you will develop a youth exchange, draft a programme, and learn about the Erasmus+ application process.
You will learn more about the background and philosophy of Erasmus+. The concepts of Non-Formal-Learning, Active Participation and Intercultural Learning will be discussed as well as the financing of your project and many aspects of the grant-application.
Objectives of the Training Course:
– To provide an informed introduction to the Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme, focusing on Youth Exchanges and their capacity to enhance young people’s active engagement in the making of Europe (though not exclusively) for newcomers to the programme;
– To offer an individual and group learning experience through a simulated process on setting up a Youth Exchange project;
– To develop the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to organise a Youth Exchange, based on the non-formal learning practice, principles, and quality standards of the EU youth programmes;
– To enable participants to reflect on their learning and to familiarise themselves with Youthpass – the strategy on the recognition of non-formal learning in the youth field, its technical tool to produce Youthpass Certificates, and its application in Youth Exchanges in particular and the EU youth programmes in general;
– To offer the opportunity to meet possible partner groups and to make contacts in other countries.
Programme: The BTM training is a learning-by-doing experience, built on a simulation exercise which is interspersed with workshops, info sessions, activities to improve the group dynamics, and ends with an evaluation.
