“Often we do our work and would never imagine that there are other youth workers working with similar issues and similar groups of youngsters. Sometimes we think on where to get new ideas and inspiration to continue our work with young people.

We invite you to attend this training to meet other colleagues from around Europe and find out about their experiences, share your practice, get new ideas, inspiration for your work with young people in NEET situation. ”Natasha Gudakovska and Paul Kloosterman (Trainers of the training course in 2018)

This training course will bring together professionals working with young people in NEET situation and those working in organizations which offer young people international youth work opportunities (especially through Erasmus+ Youth / European Solidarity Corps).

The TC will give time and space to participants to share and gain knowledge and skills on how to work strategically with young people in NEET situation, how to use Erasmus+ Youth Programme and other international youth work possibilities as a tool in their work and to find a way into trustworthy partnerships on national and international level and good quality projects.

There are many young people, who due to their life situation miss out the opportunities that are often promoted as open for all. Those are the young people who might in many ways be the ones who benefit the most from a possibility to be involved together with their peers from other countries in an international project or voluntary activity.

The main objectives of the training:

  • To understand the different concepts of young people in NEET situation on international level;
  • To understand the different realities of young people in NEET situation in the involved countries;
  • To understand how Erasmus+ Youth / European Solidarity Corps can be used to include young people in NEET situation (incl real examples with highs and lows of the work);
  • To know tools to work with young people in NEET situation within Erasmus +/ ESC framework;
  • To develop partnerships to implement Erasmus+ / ESC projects both on international and national level;
  • To find ways to work more strategically and in cooperation with other organizations to involve young people in international youth work.

Participants:

This activity is for youth or social workers or educators working with the above mentioned target group, and who are interested and motivated to get their young people involved in international youth work. We also welcome people who already have experienced in international youth work.

Priority will be given to following participants:

  • coming from these countries: Latvia , Estonia, Czech Republic, Austria, United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal, Romania and France;
  • knowing the overall aim and strategy of the SPI NEET (contact your NA to get familiar with this)
  • participating in national events organized within the SPI NEET (not obligatory)

Background

This training course is organized in the strategic partnership on Inclusion between NAs of the Erasmus+ Youth program. The main objective of this partnership is to improve and increase the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in the program, in line with the Erasmus+ Inclusion and Diversity Strategy in field of youth. This partnership fosters sustainable engagement and capacity building of organizations either already working with young people with fewer opportunities in international activities through Erasmus+ Youth or those organizations planning to do so.

An important part of an international cooperation is a strong partnership of organizations, especially when it comes to involvement of young people with fewer opportunities. It is important to cooperate with trustful partners both in your own country and abroad to make sure that young people taking part in an international project get support according to their abilities and needs. It is also important to know the young people you and your partners work with and the realities in your partner countries.

Please, notice!

After selection of the participants, the NAs should prepare their participants regarding E+ and ESC programmes and their opportunities.

Selected participants should also be aware of the SPI NEET and its basic strategy.

During the training participants will introduce the overall strategy of their organizations related to the inclusion of young people in the NEET situation (not particular projects only).

The project “Coding for Learning” aims to enrich the digital skills of youth workers, teachers and educators by developing the skills related to basic IT thinking and programming.

General Description

The training course based on Coding aims to bring the IT world closer to youth workers non-professionals in this field, with the final aim of transferring young people’s interest in computer programming, computational thinking and the ability to become creators rather than passive users of digital technologies. The TC will gather 22 participants among youth workers and teachers from 9 EU e non-EU countries.

Aims of the training course are:

  • To improve digital skills of youth workers, teachers and educators
  • To learn the basic concept of computer technology and computational thinking
  • To transfer it to non-formal education and daily work with young people, including those with fewer opportunities and hard-to-reach, such as migrants, young people in conflict with the law, NEETs, and young people living in rural areas
  • To know and apply coding to develop digital skills useful for strengthening the traversal skills of young people such as problem solving skills, teamwork, creativity, etc.
  • To know digital tools to promote active use of the media
  • To use coding to develop in young people, particularly those with fewer opportunities who do not have access to courses on this topic, a positive attitude towards programming, computational thinking and STEM.

Methodology
Non formal education like work in group, reflection round, brainstorming, learning by doing.
In order to facilitate learning of Coding, we intend to make use of a visual programming language software that facilitates the programming activity by making it visual, accessible to anyone, easy to replicate (even in non-formal contexts) and fun.

Result of the Training Course
In order to support the development of digital skills in the non-formal sector, participants will contribute in the realization of an output to guide youth workers, educators and teachers to use coding for develop soft skills in young people they work with, and, as well as basic digital skills.

Participants Profile
Youth workers, teachers and educators who daily work with young people including those with fewer opportunities and hard-to-reach, such as migrants, young people in conflict with the law, NEETs, and young people living in rural areas.

Each participant has to be committed to contribute actively for the realization of the final output which will collect contents learnt during the TC and adapted to special target group.

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

Dates: 10-13 December 2019

Application deadline: 15th 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.

Accommodation and food

The hosting National Agency of this offer will organise and covers the costs for accommodation and food.
