There are many barriers to inclusion that present themselves across Europe. we will go beyond the confusion, and create a space to equip participants with non-formal learning tools to foster inclusion within their work with young people.

General Description

The essence of the training course is to equip participants with non-formal learning tools to foster inclusion within their work with young people with fewer opportunities.

The idea of the training is:

To explore how professionals from the youth field directly working with young people with fewer opportunities can promote inclusion within their practice. We will share non-formal tools that allow participants to promote social inclusion with young people with fewer opportunities.

There will be an introduction to non-formal learning tools that can be used by youth workers committed to fostering a culture that embraces the values of diversity and inclusiveness within their communities and their target groups.

On completion of this training, participants will gain a toolbox for promoting social inclusion within their scope of work and influence. Participants will gain an understanding and knowledge of the “7 Pillars of Inclusion” and get equipped with tools to transmit this model into their everyday work.

Participants will gain an understanding of inclusive youth work within Europe and specifically in Ireland by attending interactive workshops, platforms for dialogue and questions, study visits and meetings with key representatives from the youth sector active in Irish society. Allowing participants to explore how inclusion is promoted within these services.

The main objectives of the training are:

(1) To develop an understanding of what an inclusive society might look like with the knowledge of different approaches across Europe.

(2) To look into the challenges of promoting inclusion through case studies, brainstorming and share youth workers experiences on ways to best overcome them.

(3) To become enhanced in the field of non-formal learning (NFL) and to understand the main principles of NFL. Creating and finding tools that can be used to promote inclusion.

(4) To lay the basis for meaningful and cohesive relationships across Europe. Using the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes as a platform to promote inclusion and future collaboration opportunities for youth workers and young people.

Please note the arrival day will be 1st June.

Departure will be the morning of the 6th June.

General Description

This training course aims to contribute to the development of digital youth work in Europe by encouraging and helping youth organisations innovate their youth work services and add a digital dimension to them. InnoCamp is based on the Innobox toolkit developed by Verke and it provides a structured approach and support for (re)developing operations and creating something new.

The process will enable participants to develop new youth work practices, approaches or services and exploring their potential digital dimension. Innobox can be used alone, in a group or even with the entire working community. The most important thing is the desire to do youth work better. The purpose is to help you analyse and identify the challenge that you want to address, examine it from several perspectives, and come up with an innovative solution.

During the TC participants will:

  • familiarise themselves with & experience the process of innovation in the frame of the Innobox tool
  • learn how to identify and analyse challenges they want to address and connect them to broader societal changes and developments
  • learn how to develop new (digital) methods, approaches or services to address those challenges
  • practice how to present and pitch their ideas
  • link the entire process to their local context
  • share and discuss their existing digital youth work practices
  • discover current trends in digital youth work

Profile of participants

Youth workers and youth work practitioners who are:

  • at least 18 years old
  • interested in digital youth work
  • interested in (re)developing their digital youth work practice
  • experienced in youth work or familiar with the youth work context
  • motivated & able to implement at least parts of the Innobox process in their organisation upon their return

Preparatory work and the programme of activities:

During the training course participants will gain basic understanding on how to use the Innobox tool in their future work with young people, work colleagues or even wider community.

To be able to do that, participants should familiarise themselves with their organisation’s strategy in advance and have support from their organisation to re-create the innovation process within their organisation upon their return and implement the solution.

Team:

The process will be supported by a team of 4 experienced trainers.

Conference: Towards Collaborative Practice (TCP) 2020 Forum on “Social Innovation for Social Inclusion”

Dates: 5-9 May 2020

Venue: Cyprus

Eligible are 60 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, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

“Towards Collaborative Practice” Forum: A cross-sectoral event exploring the potential of youth work and Erasmus+ to foster social entrepreneurship and social innovation among young people.

General Description

Why social innovation for social inclusion?

This edition of the TCP Forum will be an opportunity to discuss future pathways for social innovation and how it can foster social inclusion, delving, at the same time, into topics such as digital technology and entrepreneurship for inclusion and participation, female entrepreneurship, migrants’ integration and multiculturalism.

Building on the success of the 5 previous Towards Collaborative Practice (TCP) Forums that took place in Sweden, Italy, UK, Hungary and Spain, the National Agency of Cyprus is pleased to host the 6th edition of the TCP Forum.

The National Agency of Cyprus shares the belief promoted by the European Union that social innovation can act as a “source of remedies for increased social challenges (rising inequalities, poverty, social exclusion, social conflicts and social injustice)” (Social Innovation Task Force of the EU ISG, 2015). In this context, the upcoming Forum will look into the inter-correlation between social innovation and social inclusion.

Since the concepts of social innovation, and thus social entrepreneurship, are rather “new”, and not extensively explored concepts in Cyprus, the Forum envisions to bring together a wide range of professionals, representing various fields of the market and the society, where they will exchange their experiences, practices and visions. Moreover, the Forum will serve as a platform for the development of a network of professionals working on social innovation and will act as a reference point for further developments in the fields and facilitate their collaboration at national, regional and European level.

The Forum will be a melting pot of ideas, tools and good practices which participants, representing different sectors, will have the opportunity to further explore through relevant presentations, workshops and field visits. The Forum will also support the mainstreaming of future cooperation among participants for the implementation of innovative projects and initiatives under Erasmus+.

Moreover, in the framework of the 6th edition of the TCP Forum, the National Agency of Cyprus has already hosted a national activity targeting local stakeholders. The aim of this activity was to build common foundations on social innovation initiatives, for the Cypriot actors in the fields, to facilitate their collaboration, and offer them the space for an exchange of ideas, good practice and challenges faced in an area, such as social innovation, currently under progress, in the Cyprus context. This national activity also served as a preparation phase for the transnational TCP Forum, representing a novelty brought by this edition of the forum.

Objectives of the TCP 2020 Forum Cyprus

  • Encourage collaboration and partnership building between youth work and other sectors of the social innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem.
  • Raise awareness of and promote the social inclusion dimension of social innovation policies and practices.
  • Offer an opportunity for networking and sharing ideas, tools, methods, challenges and good practices.
  • Use social enterprise, social innovation and non-formal learning as a way to encourage and enable young people to sustain their entrepreneurial life skills.
  • Encourage creativity, innovation, participation, solidarity, diversity and social inclusion of young people.
  • Provide information on Erasmus+ and other opportunities to foster social innovation

Previous TCP Forums: More information about the project and previous editions can be found at @TCPCommunity (on Facebook).

To get the feel of the event, please watch the highlight videos of two previous editions:

Liverpool UK (March 2018):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1EMxY2uiv

Budapest Hungary (November 2018):

An eco-friendly event: Inspired by the previous editions of the TCP Forum, the organisers endeavor to deliver an environmentally sustainable event, including site selection, menu compilation, coffee breaks and the materials we use. We believe it is important to show that there is always a way for events to be more eco-friendly, this being one of the principles of this project.

Youth@Work Strategic Partnership on youth employability and entrepreneurship of Erasmus+ National Agencies

The TCP Forum is part of the Youth@Work Partnership, alongside other projects tackling youth employability and entrepreneurship, organised by the 16 member Erasmus+ National Agencies and SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres. You can learn more about Youth@Work at www.youthatworkpartnership.org and @YouthatWorkPartnership (Facebook).

Training Course YOCOMO – the 3rd ETS learning experience for youth workers: a systemic approach to competence development

Dates: 2-8 March 2020

Venue: Jurmala, Latvia

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, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 6th January 2020

An African proverb says that “it takes a village to raise a child”. In the 3rd edition of YOCOMO – pilot course dedicated to youth workers – we will look whether it “takes a whole system to ‘develop’ a youth worker”.

General Description

YOCOMO is a pilot learning experience that explores the potential of looking at competence development not only from an individual perspective, but also from a systemic perspective. In this case “the system” is not a bureaucratic or institutional one; it is rather about having a ‘systemic view’ on the whole field of your practice as a youth worker.

This course will ask you look at the role of the whole system of interconnected players in your field (for example: your organisation, young people, parents, schools, local community, etc.) on the development of your competences as a youth worker.

So, if…

  • you are a youth worker and you already have experience with international mobilities, but want to develop your competences further,
  • you are interested to experience working with the ETS competence model for youth workers,
  • you are motivated to explore the meanings of ‘systemic’ and ‘approach to competence development’ in your work and the potential impact,
  • you are curious, open and ready to look at your youth work practice from a different perspective,
  • you are looking for a great opportunity to meet other colleagues and share, exchange, support and evolve.
  • Then YOCOMO 3 might be the right learning experience for you!

Intentions

YOCOMO 3 intends to create a space for you, as a youth worker, to reflect and exchange on your practice using the ETS competence model for youth workers. You will also look at the potential impact the relation between ‘systems’ and ‘competence development’ can have not only on yourself, but also on the systems that you work with and belong to (your organisation, young people, local community, youth work in your country, etc.).

As participant, you will explore:

  • The ETS competence model for youth workers – its content, origins and intentions
  • The interdependence between competence areas within the ETS model
  • Who owns the competences? A systemic approach to competence development
  • Competence development and the impact on our systems
  • The reflective practice: from self-awareness to system awareness
  • Developing our own competence development and transformation plan

Target Group

Should you be interested to join this learning experience, it is important that you are involved in designing, implementing and evaluating the pedagogical activities organised by your structure. You will be asked to direct your own learning and in particular, have the ability to self-assess your competences (attitudes, skills, knowledge and behaviours). All participants must have a structure that supports them (NGO, school, municipality, youth centre, etc.). A fairly good knowledge English is necessary since it is the working language.

Note: because YOCOMO courses are still part of a pilot experience, we hope to have participants who are able to provide conductive feedback and recommendation after the course.

The team of trainers for YOCOMO 3 are Darko Marković, Natalja Gudakovska and Snežana Bačlija Knoch. Following the selection process, the training team will contact the selected participants with specific information and tasks regarding the further development of the programme, which include online learning as well.

Methodology

YOCOMO 3 is based on a long-term format and blended learning, meaning that they include:

  • One residential course of 5 days (arrivals on the 2nd of March 2020, working days on 3-7, departures on the 8th);
  • Online learning before (to prepare) and after (to experiment, harvest and further learn) on the HOP Platform – number of hours to be defined (no worries – very manageable 🙂

Because of its experimental nature, YOCOMO 3 includes a final consolidation meeting of about 2 days, between 3rd to 5th of June 2020 (probably arrivals on the 3rd evening, work on 4-5 and departures 5th evening or at the very latest, 6th morning). As much as possible, you should commit to participate in that meeting as well.

The general approach is based on the principles of non-formal learning and the course strongly supports reflection and self-directed learning.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

Being selected for this course, all costs (accommodation, travel, etc.) relevant to participation in the course will be covered by the NAs or SALTO Resource Centre involved in this project.
