Training Course ETS Trainer Skills Workshop: Well-being in training practices

Dates: 5-8 May 2020

Venue: Yspertal, Austria

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

Application deadline: 25th March 2020

This Trainer Skills Workshop intends to expand trainers’ practice exploration with regard to how they deal with well-being in training. It aims to equip them with the necessary skills to plan and approach ‘well-being’ as part of the learning process.

General Description

Trainer Skill Workshops (TSW) take place 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’ to explore a certain area of trainers’ work and related competences of the ETS Competence Model for Trainers.

In other words, TSWs are for trainers having a long-term experience with training in the field of youth. The course is for trainers who wish to develop their competence with regard to particular areas/skills and transfer the learning to their youth work practice.

This TSW will focus on the topic of well-being in training practises. What does well-being mean in a training context and how can trainings/ educational activities be developed from a well-being perspective? How can trainers support learning, reflection and self-awareness through well-being technics and practices? Can the well-being of trainer teams and the well-being of the group be a holistic approach? What elements can well-being in trainings/ educational activities include and how can trainers influence them?

The training will go beyond exchanging practices of wellness. It will invite trainer-learners to have the inner readiness to reflect on their practices and attitudes on facilitating well-being in a multidimensional environment (myself – team – participants).

TSW are NOT Trainings of Trainers, but have the intention of opening a space of learning, reflecting and sharing amongst the trainer-participants based on their experiences. Therefore, it is not the intention to hand the trainer-participants a “ready to go tool-kit”, but to open the space for reflection on their current practices and share ideas, thoughts and motivations on this topic.

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 Raphaela Blassnig and Hranush Shahnazaryan.

Duration

2,5 days. Arrivals on 5th of May till 7 pm and departures after lunch on 8th of May. Please consider that the venue is on the countryside and it will take you at least 2 hours to get from Vienna airport to the venue.

Context

This TSW is organised by the “Trainer Competence Development” working group 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.

Open conference of the European network on the Research-based Analysis of European Youth Programmes (RAY) to explore the potential of youth research within and beyond the European youth programmes during the coming decade.

General Description

For more than 10 years, the RAY Network conducted not only an ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the European youth programmes, but also implemented thematic research projects on topics such as young people’s active citizenship or youth workers’ professional development.

In addition, and full complementarity, the Horizon2020 research programme funded more than 30 thematic youth research projects in the past 7 years, on themes including health, mobility, participation, and well-being.

There are currently only few connections between these two domains of youth research, little overlap between the institutions and organisations implementing the respective research projects and programmes, and the results are not widely enough known beyond each realm.

With this conference, the RAY Network would like to take a first step to close the gap between youth research happing in and beyond the context of the European youth programmes.

Aim and objectives

The main aim of the conference is to explore the potential of youth research within and beyond the European youth programmes during the coming decade.

The following objectives have been set for the conference, which seeks to:

– Bring together youth research stakeholders from across the youth field, who are active in or interested in the European youth programmes and/or Horizon2020 youth research

– Explore, discuss and connect the findings of youth research in the past decade, building a comprehensive overview of current youth research findings across research contexts

– Use the overview of current research findings to identify thematic and/or methodic gaps in the youth research landscape in the European youth and youth research programmes

– Look forward to the next decade of youth research in Europe, seeking to identify new and common themes as well as new and collaborative ways of steering youth research

Participants

All interested European youth research and youth policy stakeholders are invited to attend and contribute to the conference, including but not limited to:

– RAY Network partners (NA representatives and research partners) & policy partners at national and transnational level

– Research and policy partners of Horizon2020 research projects with a youth focus

– Youth sector actors interested in co-shaping youth research for the next decade

We use the term ‘youth sector actor’ very openly. Whether you understand yourself as a sociologist with an interest in youth studies, or a youth worker interested in youth work evaluation, or a youth policy expert working with data from research – whatever your official role description is: as long as you are interested, you are welcome!

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

A training course for young people who took part in European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme projects and want to share their European experiences with their peers.

General Description

You did a volunteering activity or took part in another European solidarity Corps activity, participated in a youth exchange or organised a youth initiative? Probably you gained lots of experiences and got to know Europe from an exciting perspective. Are you interested in staying involved and sharing your experiences with others?

If you can imagine telling other young people about your European experiences and encouraging them to try suchlike, we invite you warmly to become a EuroPeer! EuroPeers are young people who have already taken part in an European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme project. They share their experiences and inform other young people (their peers) about these opportunities and other ways to go abroad. This can be done in different ways and in the framework of various events.

During this international training course you will learn how to organise different types of EuroPeer events and how to share your European experience effectively with your peers.

You will attend workshops on:

  • opportunities for young people to participate in Europe
  • Mobility programmes in Europe
  • Project management and PR activities
  • Communicating the European idea.

You will also have time to develop your first own EuroPeer activity. At the end of the training you’ll get the chance to implement your activity (together with other participants) on the ENCORE event, a networking event for Belgian organizations working with international volunteers. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about a variety of topics related to European volunteering experiences and you’ll help the next generation of volunteers to have a better experience, thanks to your feedback!

During the training there will also be a Social Media team consisting of 4 people, they will be responsible for the whole social dimension of the training to the online world. If you’d like to gain media experiences, you can apply for this team.

It will give you a slightly different experience of the whole training. This team will be guided by a very enthusiastic youth leader.

  2. Training Course that will equip participants with competences to develop outdoor games and activities supporting inclusion, based on the needs of their target groups.
  3. Dissemination of the results of the project and implementation of local outdoor activities supporting inclusion in each partner country by using new competences gained during the Training Course.

Approach and content

The project structured in learning by doing and self experiential way. Which means applicable, transferable, nature-based and action-oriented working for all of the activity days.

During the Training Course the participants will experience and learn different types of outdoor activities (Hiking, Boating, Solo time, Photo hunting, etc.); empathize and define the needs of various target groups; develop, prototype and test their own outdoor activities supporting inclusion; introduced to methodological and safety aspects.

There would be one and a half-full day stay complete outdoors, including cooking, sleeping in bags and group activities.

The trainer’s team will offer methods of reflection, which can be used in the follow-up multiplying events in the home countries of the participating partner organisations.

In the content of nature-based activities, the program will offer reflection methods based on self-reflection in a natural surrounding, to calm down and listen to yourself in nature.
