General Description

The human mind evolved with stories and is shaped by them. Good storytelling can motivate people to do incredible things and is a tremendous advantage in communication. Education and learning are no exception.

Creating and sharing stories is a gift innate to all of us. Join these workshops and find out more.

We will share inspiration from some famous, especially successful examples, put them in practice with individual and group exercises, and share tips on how to build stories to create engaging activities, inspire learning and promote the change we want to see in the world.

These workshops are designed for a smaller group (15/20 people max) and will involve a lot of direct and personal interaction. So, camera and microphone will be needed all the time. The work platform will be Zoom. Don’t expect long webinars and talking heads, these activities are super hands-on.

Our work will include bits of theory inputs, loads of group and individual exercises, challenges and games, sharing and reflection and a variety of interactive digital tools to make our sessions more dynamic and engaging.

These editions are offered to trainers and youth workers for a very friendly price +feedback and review at the end!

The specific topics will be:

5th October, h 20 CET – How and Why do we create stories? (story structures with famous examples, why do we share stories + the deeper impact of storytelling, theory and tips for creativity, crafting and sharing stories, small group work to create and share short stories, improv exercises);

12th October, h 20 CET- How to use stories for personal growth (the Hero’s Journey story mega-structure and how to incorporate Rites of Passage in education; the power of sharing with the Way of Council, and tips on how to lead such activities);

General Description

The overall aim of this training process is to reflect on the mindset of youth workers and exchange, discuss and challenge youth workers about competencies they need for supporting young people’s development in youth mobility and furthermore.

Training Course:
Online preparation day 26th of October 2020
Residential 4-day training course 9th – 14th of November 2020
Online Follow-up day 16th of December 2020

This will be based on drawing from successful youth mobility experiences and will lead to discussing measures for systematic change in youth worker education and training, to be better prepared! For this we will be using the impact tool.

The detailed objectives are:

– to discover and discuss practices and impact of successful learning experiences and supported/facilitated learning processes in youth mobilities,

– to discuss what supports learning in mobility’s (learning environment, process etc.) and what is the mindset of the youth workers related to it,

– to discuss how to empower and enable the competence development of young people in appropriate ways (with a specific focus on the use of it in the young person’s daily life and reality),

– to supporting meaningful expressions of gained competence through youth mobilities,

– to focus on youth workers as a learner and develop youth workers competences related to learning processes.

The core of the training process will be to discover what impact will you cause by putting ‘Learning as a priority’ in your work with young people! The training course provides an opportunity for youth workers to reflect on their mindset with a specific focus on being a learner and supporting learning of young people – especially in youth mobilities!

“Mindset”

A set of beliefs or a way of thinking that determines one’s behaviour, outlook or mental attitude towards the world. A persons’ mindset has a profound impact on their motivation, learning, participation – and actions as a learning supporter.

The core of the 2-months process will be the 4-day residential training course in the Netherlands, that will be supported by online activities one-day before and one-day after, to support the impact of the training on the local level of the participants. The training course is targeted to youth workers (professional or volunteer) who are involved in organising, coordinating and implementing mobilities for young people within the framework of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps – motivated to make a greater shift towards learning.

Together with other participants from all over Europe you will have the opportunity to work on this mindset – reflect, exchange, challenge… The training course will focus on tackling the questions: What are the elements of the “mindset of a youth worker” (in youth mobilities) in order to :

– be an example of a good learner,
– make learning a priority,
– create a good learning environment,
– balance both, group and individual learning needs,
– support reflection processes of young people,
– ask ‘good’ questions to raise participants’ awareness to their ‘hidden’ competences,
– support young people to get empowered and express their own learning meaningfully,
…..and many more questions come up when you work with young people in mobilities.

In short, the training course challenges us to see whether ‘we walk the talk’ and ‘which walk do we talk’ and which areas need reflection, discussion and exchange – in order to improve the quality of your youth mobility projects!

COVID 19 – Disclaimer – In case of the COVID -19 measures leading to the cancellation of the residential training by the Dutch NA of Erasmus+, the Mindset training will be run through an online platform with a modified approach – still focusing and tackling the same objectives and topics. In this case the participants applying for the training course participants will commit to a process of 5 days of online based collaboration (each day 2 x 2-3 h sessions) between the participants divided in the following way:

1 day → 26th of October 2020 – Intro Day
2 days → 10th – 11th of November 2020 – Online Sessions
2 days → 16th – 17th of December 2020 – Online Sessions
January 2020 (to be determined) – Peer Learning Supported Reflection

We expect applicants that apply to take part in the online course, in case the residential course needs to be cancelled by the Dutch NA.

Annti Korhonen

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 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.
