Online courses for youth workers

Have a look at the online offers to support learning and competence development of youth workers!

One goal of the European Training Strategy is to support competence development of youth workers working internationally, as well as young people in learning mobility projects. In an era where online learning becomes more and more prominent and an integral part of learning spaces, a number of online courses for youth workers have been developed. Directly connected to the ETS or not, youth workers might find here the courses that they would benefit from.
