Training Course Camino: Training on value-based assistance

Dates: 26 August – 2 September 2019

Venue: Benediktbeuern, Germany

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – DE, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Ukraine, United Kingdom

CAMINO is a training course on value-based assistance in NFE. It aims at training experienced educators and trainers in youth work to become equipped in dealing with intra and interreligious dialogue within an intercultural youth work setting.

General Description

DBYN has a tradition of using intra- and interreligious dialogue in non-formal education. In our educational methodology we refer to this as value-based assistance or Salesian chaplaincy.

It allows young people from all worldviews to share their values in life, refraining from any form of proselytism. This preventive approach puts young people in the centre. It builds their intercultural and social competences allowing them to see through cultural and religious stereotypes. These competences enable their participation in building their local communities through their active engagement as volunteers.

Project summary

CAMINO is a 6-day training course on value-based assistance in non-formal education. It aims at training experienced educators and trainers in youth work to become equipped in dealing with intra-and interreligious dialogue within an intercultural youth work setting.

With this training course, DBYN wants to commit developing and transferring our expertise in interreligious dialogue from grassroots level to European level.

The training course takes place in Benediktbeuern, Germany from the 26th of August until the 2nd of September 2019.

Aims

The main aim of this training course is to develop and implement a qualitative learning programme on value-based assistance in non-formal education, aimed at generating strategic impact on DBYN and the wider European youth sector. In order to put achieve this aim, we put forward 3 objectives:

  • To train 25 young educators and trainers in value-based assistance through a qualitative non-formal learning programme, aimed at setting up a sustainable pool of Salesian chaplains.
  • To collect new methods, approaches, insights and policy recommendations for value-based assistance within non-formal learning, from the perspective of intra- and interreligious dialogue, and make them available as resource through online platforms.
  • To develop a qualitative non-formal learning programme, and publish it the format of a training manual which can be disseminated within our network, to other faith-based INGYOs and the wider European youth sector.

Training Course ETS trainer skills workshop: Exploring learning environments in training

Dates: 10-13 December 2019

Venue: Alcalá de Henares, Spain

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 1st September 2019

This TSW will offer the opportunity for trainers to explore how they define and develop learning environments.

General Description

The learning process is generally the core of the educational activity. This therefore requires not only a special attention, but also to create a suitable environment that supports participants not to limit themselves to the experimentation part and to fully engage with their own conscious learning process.

To strengthen the learning dimension of the educational activities that the Erasmus+ Youth Programme and the European Solidarity Corps programme offer, it is important to analyse and contrast the different outlines, situations and possible scenarios where the learning process occur.

A learning process that has been carefully considered but that does not include caring for its environment and what it offers, has an impact on the way participants will engage with their learning experience. It plays a role with regard to motivation to learn, the trust to engage in the process, the sense of well-being, of belonging, of having space for emotions, and in terms of personal and group safety. This is why it is important to have a multidimensional in order to fully support the learning potential.

Aim

The main purpose of this TSW ‘Exploring learning environments in training – creating frames that favour the learning process’ is to explore how to create engaging, inspiring and trustful learning environments in a training context.

Intentions

  • to exchange practices and approaches to create learning environments in a training context,
  • to explore what are the factors that support creating a trustful, inspiring and engaging learning environment (e.g. safety, self-awareness, trust, motivation…),
  • to provide opportunities for further training activities to achieve good practice related with safe learning environment in their activities,
  • to link the experience during the TSW to trainers’ practices,
  • to [better] understand the ETS Competence Model for Trainers Working at International Level and its connection with the theme.

Target group and 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.

The team of this TSW is composed of Toni Pozo and Monika Kėžaitė-Jakniūnienė.

Duration

2,5 days. Arrivals on the 10th evening and departures after lunch on the 13th.

Context

This TSW is organised by the “Trainer Competence Development” project

The Austrian, Dutch, Czech, Estonian, German, Irish, Polish, Slovenian and Spanish Erasmus+: Youth Programme 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.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

International training course on intercultural dialogue for youth leaders at Utøya. Utøya is one of the sites of the terror attack in Norway 22 July 2011. Today it is a learning center for commemoration, learning and engagement.

General Description

“Most people believe that individuals who shy away from conflict are poor leaders. But I say, when you meet a person who tries to avoid conflict in order to solve a problem, keep that person, because we need them, they are not so many” – Thorvald Stoltenberg. In cooperation with Utøya, EWC will organize the first Thorvald Stoltenberg seminar from June 12th – June 17th 2019, at Utøya island.

Youth workers and youth leaders from across Europe are invited to a training course to support and promote ongoing initiatives in Europe to foster co-existence, trust and dialogue among young people in diverse societies.

What is the Thorvald Stoltenberg Seminar? Read more in the call for participants (pdf)

Through the training course participants will

  • exchange experiences and discuss opportunities and challenges that arise in culturally diverse societies that are influenced by migration or that have national minorities
  • explore how stereotypes, prejudices, discrimination and historical injustices function in order to find the most efficient ways to challenge them
  • be introduced to concrete tools to combat discrimination, facilitate intercultural dialogue and promote inclusion in order to prevent conflicts in their local and national contexts

The seminar will last for 4 days (arrival June 12th / departure June 17th) and bring together approximately 30 youth leaders from all over Europe, who are selected through an open call for participants. It will be facilitated by international experts with extensive experience in education for human rights, democratic citizenship and intercultural understanding.

Who can participate?

We are looking for youth leaders primarily between the age of 18 – 30 who:

  • are involved in activities promoting diversity and intercultural understanding
  • wish to develop competences and work with practical educational tools
  • are committed to organize activities to engage others in intercultural dialogue after completing the training

Organizers

The European Wergeland Centre (EWC) is a resource centre on education for democratic citizenship, human rights and intercultural understanding. Established in 2008 by the Council Of Europe (CoE) and Norway, it’s mandate is to support member states implement CoE policies in practice. The Centre designs and offers trainings and educational programmes to educational professionals and civil society actors across Europe. EWC is a partner of Utøya and the 22. July Center on educational programmes on 22. July, democratic citizenship and human rights. www.theewc.org

Utøya is an open and accessible arena for commemoration, learning and engagement. It is the site of the terror attack on 22 July 2011. As part of the rebuilding of Utøya the new memorial- and learning center, Hegnhuset, was completed during the summer of 2016. The learning center offers a unique opportunity for young people to reflect on what democracy means for them, what challenges and threatens it, as well as how they as active citizens can promote democracy in their everyday lives. Utøya is managed through Utøya AS.

The EWC and Utøya have facilitated several workshops since the opening of Hegnhuset in 2016.
