Training Course

8-11 August 2018 | Sibiu, Romania

The major aim of this training course is to train trainers to contribute to the improvement of quality youth work in Council of Europe countries, with a particular focus on working with youth work preventing violent extremism and radicalization.

Within this ToT-course participants have the chance to develop their competences as a trainer in youth work, with a particular focus on prevention of violent extremism and radicalisation.

In line with the European Training Strategy in the frame of Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme the ToT-course considers the following competences to be essential when working as a non-formal education trainer:

• and intercultural competences
• the competence to co-operate successfully in teams;
• the competence to communicate meaningfully with others;
• the competence to design educational programs;
• the competence to direct one´s own learning (Learning to Learn);
• the competence to understand and facilitate individual and group learning processes;

Participants enter the ToT-course with various levels of prior experience as trainers, as well as competences developed, so consequently, the learning needs of participants are different. The educational approach implemented in the ToT-course intends to allow for these different learning needs to be identified and pursued. 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 basic knowledge in regards of youth work and the prevention of violent extremism and radicalisation
• to be able to run training courses in English;
• to be prepared to reflect on and question their own beliefs and approaches as trainers;
• to have had international experience in the youth work field;
• to have the potential and need to develop training competences and act after the course as a trainer for their sending organisations;
• to show initiative and willingness to self-direct their own learning process.
