Application deadline: 9th March 2020

What is it a safe space and how to create it? And how is it influenced by physical, but also psychological and emotional aspects? During PhD!, you will find your answer.

General Description

PhD! is a training course (TC) enabling Youth Workers and Youth Leaders to discover how to create a sustainable safe space for the youth in their community. Participants will be exploring the power of emotions in action, behavior and human relationship.

As a part of the project, they will create their PhD – Portable Happiness Device.

Content and Objectives

The main goal of the TC is to explore what does it mean a safe space in which youngsters can experiment, fail, learn, and express themselves without fear of judgment.

Objectives

Upon graduating from PhD! Training course, participants will

  •  Create their personal definition of “safe space”
  • Understand the relevance of emotional competences in everyday life and be able to use them while working with youth
  • Create a personal Portable Happiness Device
  • Design an action plan on how to promote and support a safe space for their target group in their community
  • Establish a peer-mentoring group supporting them with the implementation of the action plan

Methodology

– We are going to explore the physical and psychological aspects of safe space.

– The activities during PhD! will be carried out indoor as well as outdoor.

– The general setting is the creation of a playground for experiential learning based on active participation, group interaction and theoretical inputs, and an important approach is co-creation.

– Creativity and exchange of experiences and knowledge among participants are central aspects of the methodology. Participants are therefore required to play an active role and bring their own contribution to the whole program.

– Together with the trainers, participants are going to explore the safe space by simulation games, group discussions and reflection, body-mind activities and creative construction of the portable tool.

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

Target group

  • you are 20+ years old (exceptions can be made, but not granted, upon experience and motivation)
  • you are a youth worker (actively working with a group of youngsters, ie. people between 13 – 30 years), youth leader (having an influence on a group of youngsters) and educator (working with methods of non formal education)
  • you agree to take an active part in all the phases of the project (preparation, training course, dissemination)

The participants are not required to have previous experience or knowledge on emotional competencies or space design but they should be interested in developing their understanding and skills about these topics in their daily youth work.

Training Course One 2 One: Supporting learning face-to-face

Dates: 23-29 March 2020

Venue: Hattingen, Germany

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

Application deadline: 31st January 2020

The main aim of this training course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work in a One 2 One relationship with young people in order to support their learning and development processes.

General Description

Have you ever felt confused about your role with the young people you work with? Do they see you as a coach? Mentor? Tutor? Can you work with groups, but find it difficult to work with individuals? Have you never had a tetralemma? Yes?

Then this course is for you!

Context and background of this training course:

In several areas of the European youth programmes, youth workers and trainers are increasingly required to be able not only to work with groups of young people but, also, to accompany individuals through the various learning, professional and personal development processes on offer.

Although one-to-one dialogue may seem like an obvious and natural form of communication, for youth work practitioners it has also become a professional requirement. Therefore many youth workers feel they need training in order to appropriately support young people through their individual development and learning processes.

We are very happy to invite you to apply for the 5th edition of this successful course, which will be held in Hattingen, Germany.

What does “One 2 One” Stand for?

“One 2 One” is a little play on words. One 2 one means face to face i.e. the individual relationship, which we are focusing on during the training course.

  • To explore what “supporting learning” means in one-to-one relationships;
  • To practice different one-2-one learning support methods and approaches;
  • To develop the skill of initiating & supporting self-reflection about learning;
  • To reflect on how supporting learning individually and in groups complement and influence
  • each other;
  • To exchange about various types of contexts (from local youth work to international mobilities) and approaches such as mentoring, coaching and tutoring.

The course will be based on and supported by the following publications:

  • One 2 One – Supporting Learning Face to Face
  • The Competence Model for Youth workers to work internationally

Within the training course you will also learn more about how to implement the Youthpass process.

Target group and profile of participants:

Professionals and volunteers – youth workers and/or youth leaders, youth trainers, mentors, educators etc.:

  • motivated to develop the competences needed to work in One 2 One relationships;
    minimum 18 years old;
  • able to actively participate in English.

The learning process and the programme of the training course:

  • Before the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype
  • During the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk
  • After the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype

What you can expect:

Why this Training Course?

To understand the principles of program building and NFE within Erasmus+ Youth Programme and European Solidarity Corps Programmes

How it will be done?

In order to have real impacts, the participants experience an innovative approach, using a full immersion in the experiential learning cycle: doing/ feeling, reflecting, transferring…

Transferring: to the own reality of participants, in order to improve ways of working with young people
Sharing: different perceptions, current situations and experiences.
Developing: the building capacity of the participants, by including them in the decision process of the project designing (participants will decide some sessions they feel they need to have) but also in the implementation of the program (‘Power to the People’ moments).

Important to mention: to promote concrete involvement and contact with habitants of the venue, different moments will be organized in common during the training course.
