Cut the Ice Germany

Training Course

18-23 March 2016 | Bonn, Germany

A Learning Opportunity for Youth Workers to improve competences related to working within diversity, diversity groups and transferability of practical approaches on youth exchanges.
CUT THE ICE is the title of the training course with specific focus on working with diversity in groups and youth exchanges. During 5 days, an international group of youth workers will focus on using methods to work around diversity, to discover and understand the concept of diversity and to acquire the needed competences to implement those during their youth exchange process. The training is based on methods and approaches framing within the non-formal education field. There will be given a special attention to the transferability of the used exercises, methods and debriefings towards their future projects. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES By the end of the training course, participants have: _ … experienced, analysed and reflected on intercultural learning methods and their transferability towards their future projects. _ … had the chance to identify and reflect upon the most common made misunderstandings, mistakes and conflicts related to culture in youth exchanges. _ … received information and practical examples how to use the mobility programmes as a tool in their strategic work-planning. (e.g. Erasmus+) _ … understood the significance and possible outcomes of non-formal learning approaches. During the training, several METHODS are used which involve participants in an active way. Participants will be challenged, not only on their intercultural awareness, but also on their active participation and on their personal self-assessment and ability for groups work. An open, tolerant and respectfull attitude will be requested from participants. Groups work, discussions, statement exercise, lectures, Open Cultural Agenda, simulation exercise, individual and groups reflections, role play exercise, self-assessment model, Youthpass, interactive workshops and participative presentations, exercises, etc. PROFILE This training course is open for all youth workers interested in using intercultural learning as a method in their projects and daily work, more concretely in their future youth exchanges.
