University Study Visit: Youth and Community Work in Scotland

Study Visit

21-27 May 2017 | Glasgow (and other locations across Scotland), United Kingdom

The project is a follow-up to the successful 2015 University Study Visit in England. It intends to promote international work and intercultural competence within Higher Education and other institutions that offer programmes in youth and community work.

Through linking youth and community work programmes to Erasmus+, European policy and the European Training Strategy, it aims towards recognition of Non-Formal Learning and greater professionalisation of youth workers and youth work training. It also links to the ‘Among Others’ project, held in co-operation between the Czech, Hungarian, Irish, Polish and UK National Agencies.

The main objectives are:

  • To look at different ways that Scottish Community Learning and Development (CLD) courses, which includes youth and community work, incorporate international work and intercultural competence modules.
  • To share experiences from participants’ countries of how international work and intercultural competence are incorporated into their youth and community work courses
  • To create links between youth and community work/ CLD faculties and European programmes (particularly Erasmus+), European policy, and the European Youth Strategy.
