TicTac - Support Quality in Youth Worker Mobility Activities within Erasmus+: Youth in Action

TicTac is a multilateral training course targeted at voluntary and professional youth workers as well as youth leaders who ar interested in using international cooperation to enhance their local development strategies in line with the goals of their organizations. Participants are supported in designing qualitative international youth worker mobility activities under the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme.

The overall aim of TicTac is to develop the participants’ competences for implementing ‘Mobility of Youth Workers’ projects within Erasmus+: Youth in Action as support measures in an organisation’s long term strategy. The specific objectives of the course are to:

  • promote the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme as an educational tool
  • explore Erasmus+: Youth in Action with a special focus on quality international cooperation
  • understand the role of Erasmus+ Youth in Action within a long term local strategy
  • simulate the first steps of organizing a ‘Mobility of Youth Workers’ project in the youth field within an international team
  • develop the participants' competences in planning non-formal education and intercultural learning processes
  • promote youth participation and active citizenship as key elements when designing a European project


The training course is designed for youth workers and youth leaders, who

  • have experienced an international event/activity before (not necessarily a project under the Youth in Action programme)
  • are motivated to learn about and make use of the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme for creating or strengthening international partnerships
  • are willing to work on the quality of their international projects
  • have the support of an organisation to attend the TicTac course and are in the position to implement European youth projects in their organisation
  • are at least 18 years old
  • are able to use English as a working language in order to establish effective communication during group-work and sessions. A low level of English will limit your learning opportunities.

TicTac and Youthpass
The implementation of Youthpass within the TicTac training courses has two dimensions: participants do not only assess their own learning outcomes, but also learn how to implement Youthpass in their own projects. This space for self-assessment is also linked with the concrete application of their new competences in their own realities through composing a learning diary and a personal action plan.
