Training Course

16-25 October 2020 | Online, Germany

In this online training course you will learn all the basics you need to organise and apply for a grant for youth exchanges in Erasmus+ YiA, with a clear focus on projects concretely involving young people from the very beginning of the process.

In this activity we concentrate on youth-adult pairings: 1 experienced adult leader + 1 or 2 young people (13-18 year-olds).

The training is built on the creation of a quality basis in youth exchanges. It also provides the space to develop concrete project ideas amongst quality partnerships, with the aim of submitting application proposals for the future Erasmus+ Youth in Action deadlines. In light of the Covid-19 experience, this particular course will be delivered online and will explore the opportunities and challenges of youth mobility now and in the future. The residential ‘EYE Opener’ training course has been renamed and reorganised as the online ‘EYE Liner’.


  • to provide information on current and future Erasmus+ Youth in Action youth exchanges
  • to provide a group learning experience in the process of setting up a youth exchange project
  • to develop basic competences (skills, knowledge & attitudes) to organise a youth exchange
  • to understand non-formal learning and young people’s participation in learning
  • to explore the role of a group leader in young people’s learning process
  • to enhance the active participation of young people in planning of youth exchanges

The fact that young people can take part in the training offers an entirely new dynamic to the process. Young people develop first-hand understanding of project building, through simulated youth exchange activity, and the cooperation and partnership between youth leaders and young people deepens.

Some tasks are done in national groups and some in international partnership groups. A key methodological feature is enabling young people and youth leaders to work in separate groups, at times, and then bringing the groups together to share learning and ideas; in this process young people are encouraged to take the lead, thereby promoting participation and empowerment. The training provides evidence of young people’s competences in project planning, independent of youth leaders. 


This training is a learning-by-doing experience, built on a simulation exercise, interspersed with workshops, info sessions and activities to enrich the group dynamics, ending with a Youthpass-focused evaluation. The training will comprise a framework of planned plenary sessions, involving all participants, alongside a parallel process of smaller group work, designed to deliver the training objectives in a flexible youth-centred format. 

The overall programmed timetable is as follows:

  • Friday 16/10: evening welcome session
  • Saturday 17/10: a morning and an afternoon session
  • Sunday 18/10: 1 session (to be defined in morning or afternoon)
  • Wednesday 21/10: evening session
  • Friday 23/10: evening welcome session
  • Saturday 24/10: a morning and an afternoon session
  • Sunday 25/10: 1 session (to be defined in morning or afternoon)
