ETS Competence Model for youth workers to work international

Seminar / Conference

18-21 April 2016 | Vienna, Austria

 

This seminar aims at introducing the new ETS Competence Model for youth workers to work international and to reflect on applying competence models in non-formal training strategies or formal curricula to train youth workers.

 

Offering young people the opportunity to join learning mobility projects cross Europe require certain competences from those working with and for young people.

 

Understanding Europe as a peer learning opportunity in which to learn more about interesting youth work practices abroad require certain competences from youth workers to network and cooperate at European level with other professionals and volunteers in the same field.

 

But which specific competences are really needed to support quality development of such European learning mobility activities for youth workers and for young people – and how to embed such competence models meaningful in measures designed to train youth workers?

 

One objective of the European Commissions “European Training Strategy in the field of Youth – ETS (attached) is “to maintain and develop the implementation of a concept of a modular system of trainings for youth workers, based on the ETS set of competences for youth workers. Such a modular system aims to serve as a framework for orientation and guidance for the different actors, in the field of capacity building in youth work”.

 

This seminar aims at bringing together experienced actors being in charge of developing and implementing training strategies and training courses for youth worker to reflect on the ETS competence model for youth workers to work international.

 

The objectives of the seminar are:

  • To motivate participants to consider competence frameworks in the further development of their training strategies and training courses
  • To reflect on challenges how to apply competence models in the development of training course curricula
  • To launch the ETS competence model for youth workers to work international and offer the opportunity for experts.
