Dates: 7-11 September 2020

Venue: Hamburg, Germany

Application deadline: 20th July 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.

General Description

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 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).

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

Training Course Youth@Work. Building Ecoliteracy: Preparing European young people for the green labour market

Dates: 5-11 October 2020

Venue: Santander, Spain

Eligible are 30 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, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 6th July 2020

The training course aims to prepare and inspire professionals working with and for young people to bring an ecological focus in their labour market orientation projects.

General Description

The training course, proposed by the Youth@Work Partnership on Youth Employability and Entrepreneurship of Erasmus+ National Agencies, aims to prepare and inspire professionals working with and for young people to bring an ecological focus in their labour market orientation projects.

In order to equip young people for the green labour market, we are organising a training course for professionals who work for and with young people. With this training, we want to prepare the participants to guide the young people they work with along their employability path, with a special focus on those competences that they will need to acquire for fulfilling the requirements of the increasing number of green jobs available.

Context:

According to the European Commission: ‘It is easy to consider green jobs as the preserve of eco-industries. After all, employment in this sector has grown by 20% since 2000 and now provides 4.2 million jobs. But the growing importance of sustainability has reached all sectors. Many industries have realised that investing in resource efficiency, energy efficiency, renewable energy, waste and water management actually saves them money by being less reliant on primary materials and imports.’

In order to be prepared to fulfil the demanding duties of a green job, it’s not only technical and scientific knowledge that is needed, but also eco-literacy, eco-consciousness, creativity, and many other traits and competences which are not taught or trained in formal education institutions. This leaves young people unprepared to fulfil the requirements needed for the growing green labour sector.

Our project aims to fill this gap.

Objectives:

  • Train 30 professionals (youth workers, trainers, youth leaders/change-makers and policy-makers) on guiding the young people they work with along their employability path, with a special focus on competences needed in the green labour sector;
  • Analyse the current trends of the labour market and explore the new competences that will be needed to cover the demands of the future green job market;
  • Provide participants with a wider understanding of the ecological systems and raise awareness of the urge for preparing young generations for future challenges;
  • Promote youth work and non-formal education as tools to develop the competences that young people will need in the future green labour market;
  • Provide professionals and young people with methods and tools in order to improve youth employability and inspire green innovation;
  • Create a network of youth professionals having a specific interest in and motivation to further cooperate on initiatives connected with the green labour market.

Methods:

We will use a combination of formal and non-formal learning methods, the non-formal ones being the dominant methods. The methodologies that we will apply will require a high involvement from participants.

It will be experiential learning, as well, meaning that participants will experience themselves some of the methodologies and techniques that they then will be able to apply with the young people they work with.

We have planned enough reflection time for the learning to sink in, as well as feedback time for the trainers to be able to adapt the programme to the participants’ needs as required.

Training Course VulnerAbility: Transforming Weaknesses into Strengths for Social Inclusion

Dates: 19-24 October 2020

Venue: Brussels, Belgium – FR

Eligible are 30 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

Application deadline: 4th September 2020

Many projects have focused on inclusion of YPLO through dialogue, active participation and citizenship. It is important to understand the vulnerability of some young people to work on it and transform it into an asset. That is the aim of this TC.

General Description

For many years now, experts and youth work professionals have agreed on one fact: young people are increasingly threatened by social exclusion: lack of integration into society, disengagement from politics, refuge into delinquency and violence, virtualization of social relations, etc.

The personal, social, cultural and economic context strongly influences this process of “vulnerability”, especially into categories of youth called “young people with less opportunities”.

Hence, many actions and projects have focused on inclusion of young people with less opportunities by promoting dialogue, active participation and citizenship. In this context, it is important to understand the vulnerability of some categories of young people in order to work on it and transform it into an asset.

In modern society, vulnerability is generally seen as a weakness and an obstacle to succeed in social life.

This negative approach also affect youth workers in their perceptions and ways of working!

Against the current trend, we think that vulnerability must be explored as a lever of action. We believe in the potential of vulnerability as an approach to connect with youngsters that feel a strong disconnection with society.

Beyond the symptom, we aim to restore the sense of belonging and affiliation of young people by equipping them with life competences, reinforcing their resilience and strengthening their values. Through non-formal and informal learning, this alternative approach helps to promote active citizenship and to strengthen social inclusion of young people.

This training course aims to support youth workers to develop their competences in understanding vulnerability and exploring its potential in reinforcing young people’s self confidence. In this training course, participants will experience a positive approach of vulnerability which is a key element in establishing true connections with young people. We will explore vulnerability through non-formal education and experiential learning methods.

Objectives:

  • To provide participants with concepts and theoretical background about vulnerability and its role within the process of inclusion/exclusion;
  • To share tools and practices of engaging with vulnerable groups, in an international context;
  • To take into account the participants own vulnerable sides in order to transform them as a strength by providing with a deeper understanding of vulnerability on a personal and interpersonal level;
  • To explore the potential of vulnerability in order to transform it in an inclusion strength for young people in their realities;

Methodology

The methodology will be participant-centered, based on non-formal education, experiential and intercultural learning; working methods will be diverse and interactive in order to ensure a balance between sharing, theory and practice.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

Unless specified otherwise, the hosting NA or SALTO of this offer will organise the accommodation and covers the costs for accommodation and food.

If yes, after being selected, get in touch with your NA or SALTO again to learn more about the overall procedure to arrange the booking of your travel tickets and the reimbursement of your travel expenses.
