Bridges for Trainers (BfT) offers a platform to debate on trends and issues related to training in the youth field – national and international.

General Description

BfT serves as a platform to contribute to exploring the next steps to be undertaken in the ETS development and to reflect on what role Erasmus+ Youth Programme and the European Solidarity Corps could play in this.

BfT takes place every two years and is a conference concept bringing together experienced trainers, other training providers, and Erasmus+ Youth Programme and European Solidarity Corps NA/SALTO RC staff working with trainers / trainer pools to reflect on trends and core issues in the youth field and effects on the work of trainers.

In 2020, trainers and training providers with existing training strategies for trainers at national or international level are invited to join the first online edition of Bridges for Trainers and explore the changes that the field went through in the past months – mostly due to the COVID-19 crisis, as well as what is ahead of us (role of training, new programmes, change of learning spaces and approaches, etc.).

The main intentions for BfT 2020 are:

  • To explore the impact or effects of the COVID-19 crisis in terms of learning and training,
  • To explore the emerging role of trainers and training in 2021,
  • To provide updates about forthcoming developments (new Programmes, European Youth Work Agenda and new European Training Strategy),
  • To reconnect with the community and encourage networking among trainers and training providers.

To avoid taking the risk to have a face-to-face event with a wide audience and high number of participants in Autumn, we have decided to go for an online version that will be spread over the dates initially communicated. However, we do not exclude having a face-to-face smaller event in Spring 2021. This call is however strictly connected to the online event.

Participants’ profile

BfT 2020 will gather ca. 150 participants with the following profiles or roles:

  • Trainers experienced in youth workers and youth leaders training (national and international level – attention: no trainers training only young people!);
  • Training course providers implementing training strategies for trainers (organisations/institutions); and
  • Erasmus+ Youth Programme/European Solidarity Corps NAs/SALTO RCs staff cooperating with trainers and trainer pools.

BfT 2020 is organised and financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme NAs of Romania and SALTO Training and Cooperation Resource Centre and will be moderated by Sorin-Victor Roman (RO), Darko Markovic (RS) and Laimonas Ragauskas (LT).

Training Course: Co-Creating in Freedom

Dates: 5 training days, +2 travel days, Spring/ Summer 2021

Venue: Castilla y León, Spain

We are looking for 2 participants aged 18+ years old coming from: Greece

and Involves 20 participants/ youth workers coming from: Morocco, Israel, Palestine,
Greece, Turkey, Portugal, Romania and Spain

Application deadline: 26th September 2020

“Co-Creating in Freedom” invites 9 very diverse countries to work on bringing youngsters to a free expression experience through different communication channels (kinesthetic, proprioceptive, visual, auditive, cognitive, relational and world).

General Description

We will train on skills and abilities to design and run a safe and trustfull space where youngters may express and co-create creatively, authentictly and in accordance with their true values.

Objectives:

This project offers strategies to bring youngters to unknown places, where the limits of their own thoughts, internal criticisms or fears of being judged stay out. Art, movement, roleplay, intuition or sounds give the place to a probably unreachable experiences if it is only used cognitive communication.

This training allows youth workers to know themselves more, to develop emotional intelligence and skills to express themselves constructively and nonviolently and inspire youngsters to drive their dreams.

Each day of the activity we will focus on a specific communication channel to research, debate, question and strengthen the social values of freedom. This will happen through creative, interactive and collaborative dynamics and methodologies.

Transversely, we will highlight attitudes for a conscious and empathic leadership model, capable of welcoming all the diversity of a group; since we understand that in order to evolving towards a freer society it is needed to upgrade the historical and current leadership references.

Activities:

This project runs one activity that brings together 20 youth workers from Italy, Morocco, Israel, Palestine, Greece, Turkey, Portugal, Rumania and Spain in a 7 days training experience.

The dynamics within the activity are categorized as cohesion , theory, experimentation, inquiry laboratory for co-creation, integration and evaluation. Theory is mainly about concepts of becoming a group, roles, leadership, paradigm for the common good, the concept of freedom, emotions and non-violent communication.

The dynamics and interactions are related to the body (authentic movement, awareness of body language), art (art therapy, collaborative art), sounds (sound travel experience, working with the voice), relationships (role play, theater, debate spaces), intuition and connection (deep ecology, visualizations). Laboratories or researches will be carried out based on colaboratives methodologies.

Each dynamics or methodology will be contextualized and explained before using it so participants can integrate them properly and use in their work with youngters.

Impact

The project is designed to let youth workers acquire tools to help youngters feeling more empowered, aware about their talents and potentials, in trusting their abilities and opinions and giving them more autonomy to develop their own initiatives. “Co-Creating in Freedom” approach participants to other ways of relating with themselves, with the other and with the world. This generates an impact wherever they go, because relating to each other is what we are doing all the time and it is from relationships where we build culture. That is why we believe that a healthier relational paradigm is an important factor in the reconstruction of the concept of Freedom.

The impact we expect is:
– That participants feel motivated to encourage youngers to show their true selves, their gifts and essence.
– Bringing more quality to Youth Workers job: Each person thinks, develops, learns and expresses better in diferents communication channels, so activities that consider the entire spectrum of communication channels are more attainable and useful for the group and its individuals.
– That participants acquire skills to express more empathetic making them easier to achieve their objectives and to be a reference working with youngters.
– That the participants feel safe to creatively address spaces in their local environments for youngster to inquering in socially difficult issues.
– That people share and disseminate easily on social media audiovisual material generated during the activity, thanks to the sociocultural diversity, that show how freedom transcends differences and is constituted under the sum of those differences.

Dates: 16-25 October 2020

Venue: Online, 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, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 11th September 2020

In this online training course you will learn all the basics you need to organise and apply for a grant for youth exchanges in Erasmus+ YiA, with a clear focus on projects concretely involving young people from the very beginning of the process.

General Description

In this activity we concentrate on youth-adult pairings: 1 experienced adult leader + 1 or 2 young people (13-18 year-olds).

The training is built on the creation of a quality basis in youth exchanges. It also provides the space to develop concrete project ideas amongst quality partnerships, with the aim of submitting application proposals for the future Erasmus+ Youth in Action deadlines.

In light of the Covid-19 experience, this particular course will be delivered online and will explore the opportunities and challenges of youth mobility now and in the future. The residential ‘EYE Opener’ training course has been renamed and reorganised as the online ‘EYE Liner’.

Objectives:

  • to provide information on current and future Erasmus+ Youth in Action youth exchanges
  • to provide a group learning experience in the process of setting up a youth exchange project
  • to develop basic competences (skills, knowledge & attitudes) to organise a youth exchange
  • to understand non-formal learning and young people’s participation in learning
  • to explore the role of a group leader in young people’s learning process
  • to enhance the active participation of young people in planning of youth exchanges

The fact that young people can take part in the training offers an entirely new dynamic to the process. Young people develop first-hand understanding of project building, through simulated youth exchange activity and the cooperation and partnership between youth leaders and young people deepens.

Some tasks are done in national groups and some in international partnership groups. A key methodological feature is enabling young people and youth leaders to work in separate groups, at times, and then bringing the groups together to share learning and ideas; in this process young people are encouraged to take the lead, thereby promoting participation and empowerment. The training provides evidence of young people’s competences in project planning, independent of youth leaders.

Programme:

This training is a learning-by-doing experience, built on a simulation exercise, interspersed with workshops, info sessions and activities to enrich the group dynamics, ending with a Youthpass-focused evaluation. The training will comprise a framework of planned plenary sessions, involving all participants, alongside a parallel process of smaller group work, designed to deliver the training objectives in a flexible youth-centred format.

The overall programmed timetable is as follows:

Friday 16/10: evening welcome session
Saturday 17/10: a morning and an afternoon session
Sunday 18/10: 1 session (to be defined in morning or afternoon)

Wednesday 21/10: evening session
Friday 23/10: evening welcome session
Saturday 24/10: a morning and an afternoon session
Sunday 25/10: 1 session (to be defined in morning or afternoon)
