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.
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.
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.

The programme starts on 7 September the morning and ends on 11 September at 13:00, hence, the departures should be arranged not earlier than 15:30 (flying time).
