Application deadline: 31st May 2020

This is a skills-oriented workshop for trainers with a long-term experience in the youthfield, who have been in touch with coaching/mentoring practices & want to explore these approaches further when it comes to designing & delivering training activities.

Application deadline: 22nd March 2020

Training Skills Workshops (TWS) are organised in the context of European Training Strategy which aims at developing trainers’ competences as outlined in the ETS Competence Model For Trainers.

TSWs are for trainers having a long-term experience with training in the field of youth. The workshop is for trainers who wish to develop their competence with regard to particular areas/skills and transfer the learning to their youth work practice. Every time TSW has a different thematic focus for certain skills development.

The TSW 2020 in Germany is in particular for trainers in the field of youth who are curious about what they can further learn from coaching/mentoring (no need to have prior expertise but to at least have been in touch with these practices) and who are ready to reflect about own practice and enrich it with some coaching/mentoring approaches and techniques. The team of the TSW is composed of Laimonas Ragauskas and Darko Markovic.

Intentions

The workshop aims at expanding trainers’ competences with regard to methods and skills connected to coaching (and to a certain extent: mentoring) in the training design and practice in the field of youth.

This TSW will tackle dimensions such as:

  • Approaching training design and delivery from a coaching mind-set
  • Reflection on the trainer role in the learning process
  • Essential coaching skills for trainers
  • Coaching individuals and groups in the training context
  • Supporting participants’ learning and development with coaching tools

More precisely, the TSW will explore a series of specific skills related to coaching in training, such as: supporting participants in defining their (development/action) goals, listening at deeper levels, asking coaching questions, recognising the potential, getting the group unstuck, opening new perspectives, etc.

Hence, it is important to highlight that this is not a course on coaching, but a short and intensive workshop on using coaching/mentoring skills in designing training activities.

Schedule

Arrivals during 5 September (dinner is foreseen for everyone).

The programme starts on 6 September the morning and ends on 8 September at 13:00, hence, the departures should be arranged not earlier than 15:30 (flying time).

NB! Please keep in mind your commitment to attend the full duration of the TSW programme.

NB! For this training, participants will be accommodated in double rooms, no exceptions possible.

Target Group

TSWs are targeting trainers:

  • active and experienced trainers in the youth field
  • interested in further developing their
  • ready to reflect on their role as trainers
  • interested in developing their coaching/mentoring skills
  • able to communicate in English
  • available to participate in the whole duration of the workshop.

Seminar: Research Methodology in the context of the European Youth Programmes

Dates: 20-22 April 2020

Venue: Berlin, Germany

Eligible are 40 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, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 22nd March 2020

The main aim of the seminar is to explore, discuss and further develop research methodologies of transnational, intercultural, interdisciplinary youth research in the context of the European youth programmes in preparation of the new programme generation.

General Description

In the context of the European youth programmes (Erasmus+ Youth Programme and European Solidarity Corps), the amount and diversity of youth research has increased tremendously. For more than 10 years, the RAY Network – an open, growing, self-governed European research network of National Agencies of the European youth programmes and their research partners – 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 complementarity, National Agencies have conducted research in international and national contexts, both within and beyond RAY, and encouraged beneficiaries of the European youth programmes to draw on research more consistently. As a result, more and more projects, in particular strategic partnerships in Key Actions 2 and 3, have begun to integrate research as a component in their projects.

Until now, there has been no opportunity for those conducting these different research projects and strands, to discuss and reflect on the methodology of youth research in the context of the European youth programmes. With this seminar, the RAY Network and Jugend für Europa would like to take a first step to provide a space for youth research practitioners and stakeholders to explore methodological questions and challenges.

Aim and Objectives of the Seminar

The main aim of the seminar is to explore, discuss and further develop research methodologies of transnational, intercultural and interdisciplinary youth research in the context of the European youth programmes in preparation of the new programme generation.

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

  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method research that is conducted while projects are ongoing;
  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method research that is conducted once projects are completed;
  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method research with different stakeholders and target groups;
  • Explore the methodological approaches and challenges of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method impact research on the effects of projects in society.

Participants of the Seminar

All those interested in the methodologies of transnational, intercultural and interdisciplinary youth research in the context of the European youth programmes are invited to attend and contribute to the seminar, including but not limited to:

  • Research and policy partners of the RAY network at national and transnational level,
  • Research and practice partners of strategic partnerships in Key Actions 2 and 3, and
  • Youth research stakeholders interested in co-shaping youth research methodology.

We use the term ‘youth research stakeholders’ very openly. Whether you have commissioned or conducted project evaluations, undertaken or worked with youth surveys, implemented or interpreted semi-structured interviews, facilitated or summarised focus groups – as long as you are interested in youth research methodology, you are welcome!

Logistics of the Seminar

The seminar will take place from April 20 to April 22 in Berlin, Germany. The programme will start on April 20 after lunch, so that most participants should be able to arrive on April 20 in the morning. The seminar programme will finish on April 22 at lunch, so that all participants will be able to depart on April 22 throughout the day.

Additional: For researchers involved in RAY, the programme will finish on April 22 in the evening, so that all RAY participants will be able to depart on April 22 in the evening or on April 23 in the morning.

Hosts of the Conference

The seminar is financed through Erasmus+ Youth Programme and is hosted by the German National Agency Jugend für Europa. The seminar is coordinated by the coordination group of the RAY Network.

Application deadline: 31st March 2020

This Training Course aims to address digital youth work by developing capacities for valuing spaces for democratic participation of young people online, by using social media.

General Description

This activity aims to contribute to value spaces and structures for the democratic participation of young people online, making them effective places for meaningful participation, reflection, creativity and positive community relation, promoting democratic citizenship.

The training aims also to reinforce the work of youth organizations and other public and private entities (schools, NGOs and municipalities, others) working with and for young people, namely, the so called “digital natives”.

The objective is to address digital youth work by developing their capacities for valuing spaces for democratic participation of young people online, by using social media, online activities and tools for educating, networking, researching, sharing information and campaigning.

Most young people use the internet daily or almost daily having access to tons of information, channels to network, to play and to produce their own content (posts, videos, music or pics) and that youth workers, youth organizations and most of the entities working with and for young people face several challenges when it comes to digital youth work.

It is essential to create a space where we can reflect about our and young people’s competences, resistances and needs along with the possibilities of looking for possible ways of combining digital and face-to-face youth work, creating opportunities for increasing our effectiveness with young people and supporting young people in using social and online digital tools safely.

Using non-formal education methodologies and approaches and having the learners and the organizational needs as a starting point for this learning process, we will work to fulfil the following objectives:

  • To promote clarification and critical reflection among participants on meaningful youth participation;
  • To increase the knowledge and understanding of participants about digital youth work (meanings, limitations and conditions)
  • To explore various tools, projects and spaces of digital participation;
  • To increase awareness on the risks, challenges, opportunities and obstacles of digital participation in the different contexts of participants,
