Training Course: Training of Trainers for European Erasmus+ Youth Projects 2020/2021

Dates: 18 September 2020 – 26 June 2021

Venue: Portugal, Germany, Italy

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland

Application deadline: 15th June 2020

ATTENTION: COVID 19 Announcement: Please note that we are determined and hopeful to conduct our Training of Trainers in 2020, even in light of the ongoing Corona/ Covid-19 crisis. The dates of the residential training courses might however be subject of change and will be adjusted, if needed. Furthermore, online learning might potentially play a more prominent role in this edition of ToT.

The major aim of this long-term training course is to train trainers who have the competences and the motivation to contribute to the improvement of the quality of projects within the Erasmus+ Youth Programme of the European Union.

General Description

This Training of Trainers (ToT) lasts ca. one year and consists of:

  • three residential seminars
  • an international training project you design and run with some other participants
  • ongoing e-learning
  • ongoing mentoring with one of the course trainers as your mentor
  • learning commitments

The dates for the three residential seminars are:

Seminar 1: 18 September – 27 September 2020 in Portugal;
Semina 2: 15 – 24 January 2021 in Germany;
Semina 3: 19 – 26 June 2021 in Italy;

This course requires a considerable time investment from the participants: in total you should plan at least 55 days:

  • 28 seminar days (including travel)
  • 12 days overall for the training project (preparatory work, prep meeting and the course itself)
  • 15 days (on average 1-2 days per month) for following the personal learning commitments, the online work, peer learning, mentor talks etc.

Within this ToT-course participants have the chance to further develop their competences as a trainer. In line with the European Training Strategy in the frame of Erasmus+ Youth Programme the ToT-course considers the following competences to be essential when working as a non-formal education trainer within the Youth Programme:

  • The competence to understand and facilitate individual and group learning processes.
  • The competence to design educational programmes.
  • The competence to direct one’s own learning (Learning to Learn)
  • The competence to co-operate successfully in teams.
  • The competence to communicate meaningfully with others.
  • Intercultural competence.
  • Being civically engaged.

Participants enter the ToT-course with various levels of prior experience as trainer as well as competences developed – consequently, the learning needs of participants are different. The educational approach implemented in the ToT-course intends to allow for these different learning needs to be identified and pursued. At the core of this process is the competence of the participant to direct his/her own learning. The group as a source for peer learning and the trainers as facilitators of these learning processes are essential pillars of this approach.

Participants are expected:

  • To have been already involved at least three times in a team of trainers designing, implementing and evaluating a training course in the framework of Non-Formal Education.
  • To have had international experience in the youth work field with a function of responsibility (not only as a participant) – organising international youth projects, leading a youth exchange, mentoring volunteers, etc.

  • To have the potential and need to develop training competences and act after the course as a trainer for European Erasmus+ Youth Programme and/or for training courses organised by the National Agencies of the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.
  • To show initiative and willingness to self-direct their own learning process.
  • To be prepared to reflect on and question their own beliefs and approaches as trainers.
  • To be able to run training courses in English.

Participating countries: Belgium (FL), Belgium (FR), Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland

General Description

The seminar will start in Moscow, but major part will be held during a Trans-Siberian train ride from Moscow to Novosibirsk (2 days and 2 nights), with the proper working sessions on board as well as visits to organisations and meetings with local communities in Novosibirsk, Achinsk and Krasnoyarsk. Additionally, for interested coordinators, we will organise a weekend trip to an eco-village in the taiga, accredited for the European Solidarity Corps (20-21 June).

Objectives:

The whole experience will be enhanced by networking and partnership building sessions to allow new project ideas to emerge. Throughout the process participants will be able to learn and experience the intercultural reality of the region.

This activity is built upon the experience that our institutions gained during similar events using river boat cruises “Between Ladoga and Onega” and “Volga Experience” in Russia (2012-13) as well as during train travel seminar “Train Adventure” in Ukraine (2014) and during outdoor seminar “From Sea to Mountains” also in Ukraine (2015) as well as the “Argonautika” sea seminar in western Georgia (2016) and “The colour of pomegranate” seminar in Armenia (2017).

Training Course: Competences of Youth Workers in preventing violent radicalization and extremism

Dates: 18-23 May 2020

Venue: Tbilisi, Georgia

Eligible are 25 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, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 31st March 2020

This is a training course for youth workers and practitioners daily involved in preventing violent radicalization who would like to upscale their competences in this field and share their experience.

General Description

Young people are impacted by constant changes in global social and economic realities, and many of them face poverty, exclusion, inequality, and marginalization. Their personal circumstances and wider political, social and economic environment in which they live may make them vulnerable to various radical influences and also violent radicalization.

Realities of this emerging trend make it necessary to emphasize the need to work with young people in Europe and its neighboring regions, in order to strengthen their resilience to violent radicalization, and reinforce the openness and inclusiveness of communities in which they live.

In order to determine and illustrate the role of youth work in this regard, the Salto Euro Med, Salto EECA and Salto SEE Resource Centres together with the National Agencies of Erasmus+ Youth Programme of France, Germany, Italy, Poland as well as the European Union and the Council of Europe Youth Partnership have come together:

  • to research and showcase positive ways and initiatives in which youth violent radicalization can be addressed and prevented;
  • to examine how we can strengthen the role of different actors, in an attempt to compile a long-term strategy about youth work against violent radicalization;
  • to provide training and networking opportunities for youth workers, practitioners from different sectors involved actively in preventing violent radicalization and extremism.

As a part of this strategy there have been realized a study about the role of youth work in the prevention of violent radicalization of young people and four international activities: a conference in Malta in 2017, a seminar in Tirana, Albania in 2018, and in 2019 a training course in Macerata, Italy and a study visit to Belgium.

More information about the strategy you can find at Salto website

The strategy in 2020 will follow up this process strengthening and developing youth workers competences in the field of prevention of violent radicalization. It would also like to offer more opportunities for NGOs to share their experience at the local and international level and provide opportunities for networking.

In the framework of this new step, a research about competences needed for youth workers in the framework of preventing violet radicalization and extremism was initiated. During the 2020 the researcher will present the outcomes of his work and he will also collect feedbacks and information needed for upscaling the final version of the work. The competences’ research is focusing on the importance of strengthening individual and community resilience as a tool for preventing violent radicalization and extremism. Resilience will be an importance focus for the upscaling of the work in the training and in the research.

The training course “Competences of Youth Workers in preventing violent radicalization and extremism is the first element of the 2020 strategy.”

The Training will bring together participants from Programme Countries and from the four Neighboring Regions of the European Union (Eastern Partnership, Euromed, Russia and Western Balkans) in order to reinforce participants personal and professional competences in the field of building community resilience and in empowerment of youth towards preventing violent radicalization.

Objectives:

  • to reflect on the key concepts regarding the meaning of radicalization, community resilience, as well as counter- and positive narratives;
  • to introduce the competence model on youth work preventing violent radicalization and extremism and collecting feedback on it:
  • to support youth workers in developing specific competences in order to be able to strengthen individual and community resilience;
  • to provide participants the space and time to share and work on existing tools and approaches that support the development of community resilience that leads the youth wellbeing especially in critical social and political situation;
  • to introduce and explore Erasmus+ Programme & ESC potential in supporting youth work in developing community resilience.

Target group:

Youth workers, practitioners daily involved in work related to prevention of violent radicalization and extremism and in buildling community resilience.

Duration:

The training is 4 days long, with arrival on the 18th and departure on the 23rd of May

Eligible are 24 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, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

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.
