Training Course: Training of Trainers for European Erasmus+ Youth in Action Projects 2018/2019

Dates: 15 September 2018 – 29 June 2019

Venue: Portugal, Germany and Italy

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain

Application deadline: 3rd June 2018

The major aim of this training course is to train trainers who have the competences and the motivation to contribute to the improvement of the quality of projects within the Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme of the European Union.

General Description

This Training of Trainers (ToT) lasts ca. one year and consists of
• three residential seminars
• an international training project you design and run with some other participants
• ongoing e-learning
• ongoing mentoring with one of the course trainers as your mentor
• learning commitments

The dates for the three residential seminars are:
1st seminar 15-24 September 2018 in Portugal.
2nd seminar 18 -27 January 2019 in Germany.
3rd seminar 22-29 June 2019 in Italy.

This course requires a considerable time investment from the participants: in total you should plan at least 55 days:

• 28 seminar days (including travel)
• 12 days overall for the training project (preparatory work, prep meeting and the course itself)
• 15 days (on average 1-2 days per month) for following the personal learning commitments, the online work, peer learning, mentor talks etc.

Within this ToT-course participants have the chance to further develop their competences as a trainer. In line with the European Training Strategy in the frame of Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme the ToT-course considers the following competences to be essential when working as a non-formal education trainer within the Youth in Action programme:
• The competence to understand and facilitate individual and group learning processes.
• The competence to design educational programmes.
• The competence to direct one´s own learning (Learning to Learn)
• The competence to co-operate successfully in teams.
• The competence to communicate meaningfully with others.
• Intercultural competence.
• Being civically engaged.

Participants enter the ToT-course with various levels of prior experience as trainer as well as competences developed – consequently, the learning needs of participants are different. The educational approach implemented in the ToT-course intends to allow for these different learning needs to be identified and pursued. At the core of this process is the competence of the participant to direct his/her own learning. The group as a source for peer learning and the trainers as facilitators of these learning processes are essential pillars of this approach.

Participants are expected
• To have been already involved at least three times in a team of trainers designing, implementing and evaluating a training course in the framework of Non-Formal Education.
• To have had international experience in the youth work field with a function of responsibility (not only as a participant) – organising international youth projects, leading a youth exchange, mentoring EVS volunteers, etc.

• To have the potential and need to develop training competences and act after the course as a trainer for European Erasmus+ Youth in Action projects and/or for training courses organised by the National Agencies of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme.
• To show initiative and willingness to self-direct their own learning process.
• To be prepared to reflect on and question their own beliefs and approaches as trainers.
• To be able to run training courses in English.

Dates: 13-18 May 2018

Venue: Setúbal, Portugal

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countries

Application deadline: 13th April 2018

This Training Course is an opportunity for volunteering hosting/sending organizations to train their mentors (or potential), offering the basic learning for mentoring within a volunteering project (preparation, implementation & follow up phases).

General Description

The idea of “ABC on Volunteering Mentorship, Training Course for newcomers!” comes from a detected problem in the “On Arrival” and “midterm” EVS Trainings evaluations around Europe. Most of the EVS mentors have a big mobility and not a long continuation in their role as mentors. Sometimes they are just volunteers with almost no link to the organization and no awareness about Erasmus+ program.

This situation make that the organizations have to change often the mentors, and they don’t have time, and sometimes knowledge about the competences required in an EVS mentor.

Most of them, already with experience, don’t know exactly which are their function, and many volunteer complain about the lack of support during their projects, not because their mentors are not nice people, just because are not prepared to help them in the learning process, Youthpass, conflict resolution, linguistic platform, etc.

“ABC on Volunteering mentorship in Erasmus+!” is an opportunity for volunteering hosting/sending organizations to train their mentors (or potential), offering the basic learning for mentoring volunteering project (preparation, implementation & follow up phases), aiming to develop their knowledge and skills to better support volunteers and learning process, under Erasmus+ programme.

During the TC participants will learn more about Erasmus+ programme, roles of the different key stakeholders on a volunteering project, in special, the role of the mentor, the knowledge and skills needed, how to support the learning process, tips to solve problems, etc
Participants will reflect about their own work and will exchange experiences with each other, creating as an outcome a “support network” that will go on after the end of the TC.

Objectives
– To offer the newcomers mentors a practical and theoretical experience on mentorship.
– To understand the Volunteering Chart and the roles of the different stakeholders in the volunteering projects, within Erasmus+
– To develop knowledge and skills to support volunteers, namely the learning processes
– To discover different types of mentoring
– Get answers to technical / practical issues
– Meet good practices and exchange experiences
– Exchange contacts a create possible new partnerships
– Create a support group (network)

Methodology
The programme will be structured with a balanced combination of introductory plenary discussions, round tables, exchange of experiences, lectures and working groups.
The use of non-formal education methodologies will ensure the active participation of all individuals involved. Working groups and active methods will be also used in order to create an environment that encourages a dynamic involvement of all participants. The diversity of approaches will be used in order to addresses the group various ways to better engage and contribute to the discussed topics.

The presence of experienced facilitators during the all programme will definitely contribute to create a productive and efficient working environment to enable the participants to take the best out of the working days.

Group size: 24 participants
– More than 18 years old; no age limit
– Able to communicate in English
– Representing organisations newcomers on volunteering activities
– Starting or will start soon to work as volunteer mentors
– Would like to improve knowledge and skills as volunteer’s mentor to support European volunteers and learning process.

Training Course: IMPROject

Dates: 14-23 August 2018

Venue: Halle, Germany

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal

Application deadline: 14th May 2018

A 8-day training course which aims to introduce and explore principles of “improvisation” and experiment with practical and fun tools and techniques that can be readily used in daily life, creative work and in the other situations and places too.

General Description

IMPROject is an international Training Course on Improvisation and Youthwork! Come to learn to (re)act naturally!

Improvisation serves to strengthen one’s confidence in himself and in his skills and abilities. It allows participants in training to experience visceral, ‘in the moment’ practice within an overtly reflective and supportive environment.

Furthermore, improvisation encourages one to actively seek the unfamiliar, rather than simply learn to cope with it. It also represents a more fitting response to the complexity of human relations in which youth workers operate and thereby help to preserve the integrity of process-based practice.

This training is for you, if you…
-want to explore and experiment with specific tools from non formal artistic fields (theatre, dance, creative expression),
-can “survive” joyfully 9 days in a tent and in close contact with nature and other people,
-are willing to actively participate in community building practices (preparation of food, taking care of the venue and the group…),
-can adapt to a program that goes with the flow (of nature, of the group, of the environment),
-are open to sharing your own skills and learning the skills of others,
-are motivated and willing to commit to work on the objectives of the training course and participate in the whole duration of the project (preparation, training course, follow-up activities).

During the training you will be:
-collecting new inputs and inspiration that renew motivations to act with commitment and new ideas.
-refreshing curiosity and playfulness in approaching your work in order to prevent burning out.
-improving your trainers’ skills to be more efficient, adaptable, responding to issues and demands in your work.
-widening your perspectives and points of view to see new opportunities, create new patterns, and avoid situations of stalemate when working with people with different cultural background.
-gathering specific tools from non formal artistic fields (theatre, dance, creative expression) that are not easily accessible for all the youth workers.

By training your own awareness, acceptance, sense of initiative you can improve the quality of your actions. We wish to support you in finding ways to more efficient and creative approach through improvisation – by developing your skills to be fully present, listen, accept and act, by equipping you with new improv based tools that you can later on use in your practice.
