Training Course ETS: COMETS on Being Civically Engaged

Dates: 6-12 June 2020

Venue: Germany

Eligible are 24 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, Western Balkan countries, Eastern Partnership Countries

Application deadline: 5th April 2020

Training for Trainers focusing on the dimension of being civically engaged, based on the ETS competence model for trainers working at international level.

General Description

In the context of the European Training Strategy (ETS) the SALTO Training & Cooperation Resource Centre (SALTO T&C RC) developed the Competence Model for Trainers Working at International Level. The COMETS training courses – or rather learning experiences – were developed as a support for trainers in their competence development, each course focusing on one competence area of the above-mentioned model.

Hence, with this call, JUGEND für Europa, the German National Agency for Erasmus+ Youth Programme together with SALTO T&C RC invite trainers to take part in this seventh edition of COMETS: ‘Being civically engaged’.

This particular dimension from the model encompasses the following competences:

  •  Linking (youth) policies and educational programmes
  • Integrating political values and beliefs in the context of the trainers work
  • Supporting learners in developing political thinking
  • Applying democracy and human rights principles

Taking the above into account, the intentions of the course are:

  •  To explore the personal, internal and external influences on the role of trainers (politics, policies, environment, social and economical contexts, etc.);
  • To reflect and share on the notions of ethics and ethos of trainers;
  • To work on the attitudes of trainers with regards to authenticity, openness, curiosity and dealing with personally challenging values and beliefs;
  • To reflect on and explore the possible limits of the ‘civic/political role of trainers’ in their practice;
  • To reflect on human rights principles and human rights education in the work of trainers.

COMETS training courses intend principally to offer trainers a space to reflect, exchange and contrast their practice and understanding with regard to a certain ETS competence area. The main purpose is to enable participants to take further steps in their professional practice.

This is not a classical training course in the sense of receiving tools and development of the practical aspect of being a trainer. The focus of a COMETS is more introspective, requiring self-examination of practice, attitude, understanding and behaviour, as well as a desire to improve in one’s practice.

No matter the focus on each course, COMETS are all based on a series of principles, which are:

  •  Awareness: me – the group – the field – the context;
  • Readiness to question and to review practice;
  • Readiness to stretch boundaries;
  • Being explicit about choices as trainers;
  • Integrity: Walk the talk!
  • Giving space to the whole person: body – mind – soul – heart;
  • Awareness: Being here as learner in a community of learners;
  • Giving to Caesar what’s Caesars’: acknowledging [re]sources of practice.

The team of trainers for this COMETS edition are Christin Voigt and Nik Paddison. Following the selection process, the training team will contact the participants with specific information and tasks regarding the further development of the programme. This is to ensure that the needs of the participants will be taken into account in order to maximise the potential the course offers.

Participant profile:

COMETS is a non-classical training for trainers which provides advanced trainers at international level with opportunities to come together to reflect upon, discuss and develop. In the context of COMETS, ‘advanced’ means that the trainer-learner has the capacity to direct their own learning and in particular, the ability to self-assess their own competences.

The general aims of the COMETS training courses are:

  •  To contribute to quality development of youth work and of training practise in the field;
  • To put the ETS competence model into practice;
  • To support National Agencies and other youth sector organizations in working with trainers on competence development;
  • To contribute to the professional development of trainers in the field.

Please find attached the guiding principles developed for the COMETS training courses and at  further information around the series of COMETS.

In cooperation with some Erasmus+ Youth Programme National Agencies SALTO T&C RC has developed a strategy to provide opportunities for trainers to develop their competences according to their needs and needs of training providers like National Agencies. Please find more information here.

Training Course Quality Wave: Training for Quality Ambassadors

Dates: 17-21 May 2020

Venue: Ostend, Belgium – FL

Eligible are 45 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, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 9th March 2020

This 3 day training course empowers youth workers, youth leaders and project managers who are eager to discover and utilise the Quality tools developed by the EPLM platform and share the Quality approach with their peers.

General Description

Non-formal education, especially in learning mobility projects, can create life-changing experiences for young people and leave a great impact on the communities involved. If implemented carefully learning mobility projects can even contribute to youth-led social change in Europe and beyond.

Europe invests a lot in their youth by increasing the opportunities and funding for Programmes such as Erasmus+, European Solidarity Corps and activities of the Youth Department of the Council of Europe.

Unfortunately, some of the funded projects are of poor quality and at the same time, the programmes are not being used by many potential beneficiaries because of the existing thresholds and barriers.

Motivated by these insights, The European Platform on Learning Mobility (EPLM) developed useful tools to support Quality in learning mobility projects: the Quality App and the Quality Handbook

With this training, we want to support youth mobility professionals in using and promoting these tools so that the Quality approach can continue to spread and grow throughout Europe.

Do you want to surf with us on the Quality Wave?

The aim of this training course is to provide support for Quality! Learning mobility projects in times of increased focus on quantity (more budget) and empower Quality! Ambassadors throughout Europe to roll out the EPLM Quality Tools in their countries.

We will create space to:

  • Explore and experiment with EPLM Quality Tools: Q! App and Quality handbook
  • Have a critically constructive look at these tools
  • Share experience and stories between experienced Q! ambassadors and new ones
  • Build a vision on “Why Quality learning mobility is important”
  • Prepare international/national/local multiplying activities (training, promotion, support/coaching, E+ or ESC projects,…)

Are you a future Q! Ambassador? This little test might help you to find this out. How many boxes can you tick?

  • You are a youth mobility believer
  • No quantity without Quality is your motto
  • You have experience in excellent, moderate and/or poor quality mobility projects
  • You’re open to share your experiences with your peers

You are motivated to lift up the quality of your own projects and support newcomers in doing so

45 participants can attend this training. The target group is twofold:

  • Participants of the Q! Multipliers meeting in Budapest (July 2019) who want to share their experience as a Quality Ambassador on EU and/or national/regional/local level (max 15)
  • Participants who want to become a Q! Ambassador and are eager to share the Quality approach in their country (min 30)

We aim at reaching participants from a diversity of countries, including partner countries (sent by SALTOs). Preferably 2 or 3 participants per country with a diversity of profiles and experiences with youth mobility projects.

Each NA will be free to nominate the participants they consider most appropriate.

NAs engage themselves to support the future Q! Ambassadors in their local/national activities (Possibly funded by TCA/NET). NAs that already have planned to translate the Q! App or to set up national dissemination activities on Quality get priority in sending (future) Q! ambassadors.

Practical info:

This training course will be hosted by JINT, NA Belgium-Flanders in the city of Ostend (by the sea).

The meeting rooms are located in the Cultural Centre “De Grote Post
Accommodation will be offered in the playful Upstairs hotel (2 p bedrooms)
Arrivals are expected on the 17th may (preferably before 7 pm) and departures are on 21st may after breakfast.

Your Quality trainers’ team: Snezana Baclija Knoch (also Quality handbook editor), Sérgio Gonçalves (also Q! App administrator) and Sofie Van Zeebroeck (also EPLM member)

Venue: Izmir, Foca, Turkey

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Germany, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Republic of North Macedonia, Turkey

Application deadline: 3rd February 2020

This training course will bring together motivated youth workers, youth leaders and peer-to-peer educators from youth organizations in order to develop their intercultural learning and dialogue competences (knowledge, skills, attitudes).

General Description

This training course will bring together motivated youth workers, youth leaders and peer-to-peer educators from youth organizations from different European countries and Turkey in order to develop their intercultural learning and dialogue competences (knowledge, skills, attitudes) that would enable them to become effective multipliers of intercultural dialogue at their communities with young people.

In this way they would be more equipped to deal with growing tensions in the society by making young people more respectful and empathetic towards people from different cultures.

Objectives

  • Sharing realities in different European countries when it comes to challenges related to dealing with cultural diversity (especially in the context of growing migration)– the focus on how it affects young people
  • Exploring main theories and concepts related to D&I –culture, identity, dialogue, diversity dimensions, active tolerance, inclusion-exclusion, mechanisms of stereotyping, prejudices and discrimination, etc.
  • Becoming more aware about own identity, culture, stereotypes and prejudiced behaviour patterns and realizing how it affects our youth work
  • Realizing the role and potential of us as youth workers to make positive changes in regards to greater understanding, more respect, solidarity and active tolerance at our communities by using NFL approach
  • Developing skills of youth workers to design and facilitate concrete NFL tools for young people that develop their intercultural learning competences, appreciation of diversity and promote solidarity and inclusion
  • Planning and implementing concrete follow-up activities/actions that promote D&I in local community with young people (also excluded young people)

By involving in this project, it is crucial that participants realize that we expect their active involvement not only during the training, but also in preparation activities and also follow-up activities.

Profile of participants

To achieve the objectives of the training, we will pay special attention to make sure that suitable participants are selected. First of all, we will review the participants delegated by the partner organizations. Nevertheless, if the profile will not fit the criteria (which sometimes happen…), we will select participants that will apply through call for participants published in SALTO website.

Participants applying for this project should:

Be involved in youth work (as professionals or volunteers) for more than half a year and have regular contact with young people (13-30 years old). These could be youth workers, peer-to-peer educators, activists, social workers, NGO activists, etc.

We are also open to Teachers – Educators, but apart from formal lessons, they should also be working with youngsters outside official curricula (for example, provide class lessons, after school activities, workshops, lead school council, organizers of cultural life, project weeks, etc.).

  • – Open to challenge themselves and learn a new approach of using games and participate in the intense programme of the training (sometimes even 12h per day
  • Committed to be promoters of social change in their community
  • Ready to organize at least 2 follow-up activities using the experience from this training (individually or together with another person from the same country) within 3 months after the training
  • Fluent in communication in English (to be able to work in mixed working groups without help of translation of other colleagues)

If candidates selected by partner organizations will not fit the criteria, we keep the rights to refuse such candidates.

Please note that although Turkey is very nice and tempting country for tourism, during our programme there will be no time for that…so, if you wish to visit some places (we can give you advices…), you are welcome to arrive earlier/leave later from Turkey (and pay for your extra stay yourself).

Conference: Towards Collaborative Practice (TCP) 2020 Forum on “Social Innovation for Social Inclusion”

Dates: 5-9 May 2020

Venue: Cyprus

Eligible are 60 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, United Kingdom, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 16th February 2020

“Towards Collaborative Practice” Forum: A cross-sectoral event exploring the potential of youth work and Erasmus+ to foster social entrepreneurship and social innovation among young people.

General Description

Why social innovation for social inclusion?

This edition of the TCP Forum will be an opportunity to discuss future pathways for social innovation and how it can foster social inclusion, delving, at the same time, into topics such as digital technology and entrepreneurship for inclusion and participation, female entrepreneurship, migrants’ integration and multiculturalism.

Building on the success of the 5 previous Towards Collaborative Practice (TCP) Forums that took place in Sweden, Italy, UK, Hungary and Spain, the National Agency of Cyprus is pleased to host the 6th edition of the TCP Forum.

The National Agency of Cyprus shares the belief promoted by the European Union that social innovation can act as a “source of remedies for increased social challenges (rising inequalities, poverty, social exclusion, social conflicts and social injustice)” (Social Innovation Task Force of the EU ISG, 2015). In this context, the upcoming Forum will look into the inter-correlation between social innovation and social inclusion.

Since the concepts of social innovation, and thus social entrepreneurship, are rather “new”, and not extensively explored concepts in Cyprus, the Forum envisions to bring together a wide range of professionals, representing various fields of the market and the society, where they will exchange their experiences, practices and visions. Moreover, the Forum will serve as a platform for the development of a network of professionals working on social innovation and will act as a reference point for further developments in the fields and facilitate their collaboration at national, regional and European level.

The Forum will be a melting pot of ideas, tools and good practices which participants, representing different sectors, will have the opportunity to further explore through relevant presentations, workshops and field visits. The Forum will also support the mainstreaming of future cooperation among participants for the implementation of innovative projects and initiatives under Erasmus+.

Moreover, in the framework of the 6th edition of the TCP Forum, the National Agency of Cyprus has already hosted a national activity targeting local stakeholders. The aim of this activity was to build common foundations on social innovation initiatives, for the Cypriot actors in the fields, to facilitate their collaboration, and offer them the space for an exchange of ideas, good practice and challenges faced in an area, such as social innovation, currently under progress, in the Cyprus context. This national activity also served as a preparation phase for the transnational TCP Forum, representing a novelty brought by this edition of the forum.

Objectives of the TCP 2020 Forum Cyprus

  • Encourage collaboration and partnership building between youth work and other sectors of the social innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem.
  • Raise awareness of and promote the social inclusion dimension of social innovation policies and practices.
  • Offer an opportunity for networking and sharing ideas, tools, methods, challenges and good practices.
  • Use social enterprise, social innovation and non-formal learning as a way to encourage and enable young people to sustain their entrepreneurial life skills.
  • Encourage creativity, innovation, participation, solidarity, diversity and social inclusion of young people.
  • Provide information on Erasmus+ and other opportunities to foster social innovation

Previous TCP Forums: More information about the project and previous editions can be found at @TCPCommunity (on Facebook).

To get the feel of the event, please watch the highlight videos of two previous editions:

Liverpool UK (March 2018):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1EMxY2uiv

Budapest Hungary (November 2018):

An eco-friendly event: Inspired by the previous editions of the TCP Forum, the organisers endeavor to deliver an environmentally sustainable event, including site selection, menu compilation, coffee breaks and the materials we use. We believe it is important to show that there is always a way for events to be more eco-friendly, this being one of the principles of this project.

The TCP Forum is part of the Youth@Work Partnership, alongside other projects tackling youth employability and entrepreneurship, organised by the 16 member Erasmus+ National Agencies and SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres.
