Training Course ETS trainer skills workshop: Exploring learning environments in training

Dates: 10-13 December 2019

Venue: Alcalá de Henares, Spain

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, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 15th September 2019

This TSW will offer the opportunity for trainers to explore how they define and develop learning environments.

General Description

The learning process is generally the core of the educational activity. This therefore requires not only a special attention, but also to create a suitable environment that supports participants not to limit themselves to the experimentation part and to fully engage with their own conscious learning process.

To strengthen the learning dimension of the educational activities that the Erasmus+ Youth Programme and the European Solidarity Corps programme offer, it is important to analyse and contrast the different outlines, situations and possible scenarios where the learning process occur.

A learning process that has been carefully considered but that does not include caring for its environment and what it offers, has an impact on the way participants will engage with their learning experience. It plays a role with regard to motivation to learn, the trust to engage in the process, the sense of well-being, of belonging, of having space for emotions, and in terms of personal and group safety. This is why it is important to have a multidimensional in order to fully support the learning potential.

Aim

The main purpose of this TSW ‘Exploring learning environments in training – creating frames that favour the learning process’ is to explore how to create engaging, inspiring and trustful learning environments in a training context.

Intentions

  • to exchange practices and approaches to create learning environments in a training context,
  • to explore what are the factors that support creating a trustful, inspiring and engaging learning environment (e.g. safety, self-awareness, trust, motivation…),
  • to provide opportunities for further training activities to achieve good practice related with safe learning environment in their activities,
  • to link the experience during the TSW to trainers’ practices,
  • to [better] understand the ETS Competence Model for Trainers Working at International Level and its connection with the theme.

Target group and team of trainers

TSWs are targeting trainers who already have a long-term experience with training in the field of youth. We do not wish to set a strict minimum number of years of experience or a number of training courses but rather focus on the need for applicants to have the capacity to reflect on their practice as trainers, which generally require several years of regular practice. The training activity is for trainers who wish to develop their competence with regard to particular areas/skills and transfer the learning to their youth work practice.

The team of this TSW is composed of Toni Pozo and Monika Kėžaitė-Jakniūnienė.

Duration

2,5 days. Arrivals on the 10th evening and departures after lunch on the 13th.

Context

This TSW is organised by the “Trainer Competence Development” project

The Austrian, Dutch, Czech, Estonian, German, Irish, Polish, Slovenian and Spanish Erasmus+: Youth Programme National Agencies together with the SALTO Training and Cooperation RC develop and carry out this long-term NA strategic partnership project.

Supporting the competence development of trainers is an important aspect to ensure the high quality of youth worker trainings in Europe. The ETS therefore calls for the development of a modular system to train the trainers of youth workers by defining a set of essential competences that can be acquired in specific courses and serve to establish a pool of certified trainers in Europe.

SALTO T&C RC keeps this subject on its agenda and develops projects in cooperation with NAs and other stakeholders.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

The hosting National Agency of this offer will organise and covers the costs for accommodation and food.

Travel reimbursement
