About the project 
The project ”Training Trainers: the new generation” aims to train youth workers to become trainers and provide them with the theory, skills and tools necessary to design implement and evaluate effective training programmes themselves in order to generate optimum learning outcomes and improved performance. The training course will take place in England and will gather 31 participants from 10 European and neighboring countries. It is planned as an intensive 10 day long training course using the method of non-formal education in order to create an appropriate learning environment by focusing on learning by experience, reflection on the past activities of the participants, discussions about the key competencies of youth work and discovering training competencies and methodology.
A team of highly competent trainers will implement the activity ensuring that each participant will get adequate learning guidelines and personal mentoring as well. Specific focus of the training will be made on active learning - how to understand it and to promote it when working with young people. There is a lack of competent trainers in the youth field who are able to work on this Youth in Action programme priority areas - thus the training will directly contribute to the increase of the educational activity and quality youth work done around the dimensions and act of youth work and learning in Europe.
The training course will contribute to the development and expansion of a network of trainers and facilitators with the skills and motivation to contribute to the quality and sustainability of the youth programmes in Europe. It will include various types of learning activities and formats to provide the youth workers with considerable flexibility in adapting the educational programmes to the specific needs of participants.
