We would like to carry out project to address the problem of inclusion of refugees in non-formal education context in youth work while create synergies among the participating organizations to future cooperation for the inclusive education methods.

General Description

The refugee population is, mainly, made by young people aged between 13-30; in Turkey the percentage is more then 75%. Most of those young people have to be educated to prevent marginalization; in parallel to this issue there are no opportunities for those young refugees to participate to education processes in the Youth Works.

In additional, youth workers/leaders are not competent enough to provide educational opportunities in EU and neighboring countries, especially in places like Turkey and Greece.

The methods used during the TC:

The methodology of the training will be based on the non-formal education methods such as:

  • role-plays,
  • case studies and group work;

there will be a space for participants’ to try out their own methods.

The participants will become aware about the refugee situation in their countries and in EU general therefore they will be able to take initiative towards those issues in their local communities.

Participating in the project, it will motivate them, in their work, as they are working in their local communities as youth workers therefore they will be acting as change makers.
In the long run, potential benefits of the project:

– Racism and xenophobia towards refugees and young people with migration background will be decreased.
– Educational services (in youth work) for refugees and young people with migration background will be increased.

Objectives of the training course:
Thus, the project proposal aims to strengthen the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in finding proper approaches for fostering the inclusion of refugees it also marginalized young people with migration background.

More specifically the projects’ objectives are:
– To strengthen the understanding of inclusion and its challenges for young refugees and young people with migration background.

General Description

This trainer skills workshop (TWS) intends to expand trainers’ toolkits with reflective approaches and to equip them with the skills to plan and implement reflection as part of the learning processes.

The Trainer Skills Workshop on the Art to Reflect will focus on:
– Practical skills to support participants with valuing and using reflection as an essential part of learning;

– Knowledge and Awareness of designing and delivering effective reflection sessions, adjusted to various learning environments and educational approaches;
– Supporting learners in reflective space and practice in the context of the European Training Strategy (ETS) – in the field of youth.

Participants will get the possibility to:
– Explore the competence area of “Learning to learn” in the ETS Competence Model for Trainers and its interconnectedness with other Competence areas;
– Share experiences and creative methods of individual and group reflection processes during training courses and related learning activities;
– Linking this reflective experience to participants’ training practices;
– Experience a variety of individual reflection and reflection groups;
– Self-reflect: the trainer as learner (individual and within the team).

Trainer Skill Workshops (TSW) are offered twice a year as part of a strategic long-term cooperation between NAs and SALTO T&C RC, coordinating European training offers for trainers.

It supports advanced trainers exploring a certain area of trainer work and related competences of the ETS Competence Model for Trainers. In the context of TSWs, advanced means that the trainer-learner has the capacity to reflect on their practice as a trainer. This also implies a capacity for [self] assessment.

Target Group & Team of Trainers (TSWs): are targeting trainers who already have a long-term experience with training in the field of youth. We do not wish to set a strict minimum number of years of experience or a number of training courses but rather focus on the need for applicants to have the capacity to reflect on their practice as trainers, which generally require several years of regular practice. The training activity is for trainers who wish to develop their competence with regard to particular areas/skills and transfer the learning to their youth work practice.

Context: This Activity is organized by the “Trainer Competence Development” project:             The Austrian, Dutch, Czech, Estonian, German, Irish, Polish, Slovenian and Spanish Erasmus+ Youth National Agencies together with the SALTO Training and Cooperation RC develop and carry out this long-term NA strategic partnership project.

Supporting the competence development of trainers is an important aspect to ensure the high quality of youth worker trainings in Europe. The ETS therefore calls for the development of a modular system to train the trainers of youth workers by defining a set of essential competences that can be acquired in specific courses and serve to establish a pool of certified trainers in Europe.

SALTO T&C RC keeps this subject on its agenda and develops projects in cooperation with NAs and other stakeholders.

  • The team of this TSW is composed of Gabi Steinprinz and Joanna Wrońska.
  • This activity and venue place are accessible to people with disabilities.
  • Note: arrivals are expected on the 26th of February evening and departures on the 1st of March after lunch.
