The Nectarus team, Cities of Learning partners, and the International Youth Work Trainers Guild creating a good practice example in Europe on how the European Training Strategy (ETS) can be translated into specific actions – a set of modular training courses for trainers.

This international training will be the first activity in a series of modular training courses for trainers in the field of youth work.

  • 1st Course: 4-10 February in Lithuania
  • Selected people will be invited for the onboarding online meeting on the 18th December, 12.00 - 13.30 CET.

The training course will contribute to developing trainer’s “Facilitating Learning” competences based on the ETS Competence model for trainers to work internationally:

  • To identify and meet the learning needs of trainees
  • To facilitate group dynamics
  • To select, adapt or create appropriate methods
  • To stimulate active participation and empowerment of learners
  • To promote creativity, problem-solving and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking
  • To create a safe, inspiring learning environment in the training context

Highlights of this training activity:

Aligned to the ETS competence model for Trainers - the course objectives and content are aligned with professional competences expected for Facilitating Learning in international training settings in the field of youth work.

Focuses primarily on international youth work training context - how to facilitate seminars, training courses, study visits and other formats of youth workers training mobilities.

Certified training - the broad coalition of partners will create opportunities for the course participants to assess, validate and recognise competence development at the international level and in specific countries (if possible).

Digital friendly - the training and competence assessment methodology and activities will include using digital tools and platforms, for example, Trainers Appraiser platform and digital Open Badges.

Long-term development opportunity - participants willing to continue to develop their professional trainer competences will be invited to apply for the upcoming training courses on other competence areas.

Endorsed by the International Youth Work Trainers Guild and a broad partnership of Cities of Learning members, and other national and international organisations from the youth field.
