Key to Non-Formal Learning

Training Course

4-9 October 2021 | Brežice, Slovenia

The aim of the training course is to help participants to develop competences to facilitate diverse and meaningful non-formal learning processes in international youth work.

The concept of learning in youth work is still developing and we believe it needs to be  better understood. Non-formal learning has been recognised as one of the top priorities in the EU Youth Strategy and has been supported by the Youth in Action and Erasmus + programme for the last 20 years. In this time Youthpass and Key Competences were developed to support the recognition and validation of the outcomes of the non-formal learning.

The aim of the training course is to help participants to develop competences to facilitate diverse and meaningful non-formal learning processes in international youth work.
This training course will focus on three major pillars:
– The importance of recognising yourself as a learner. Participants will be able to reflect on their own learning process and in this way become more aware of different learning preferences and needs in their youth work.
– The importance of non-formal learning in youth work. Participants will be able to develop a better understanding of the non-formal learning concept, learn new methods and reflect on the role of Youthpass.
– The importance of the supporting role of the youth worker. Participants will be able to reflect on their own competences as a youth worker and on how to create a proper learning environment for young people.

Ambitia Institute (Youth NGO)

Established as an institute for the development of youth work our activities started in 2012. Our main focus has been the encouragement of young people in order to nurture and grow their own innovative ideas. Guided by our international team, some of these young people were carrying out local, national, and international projects. Others grabbed the opportunity to boost their entrepreneurial skills by establishing their own businesses.

While our network of partners was growing all over Europe, we became more and more aware of the complexity of learning process. Learning should not be reserved just for young people. We believe that learning should be an essential part of everybody's life regardless of age, status, gender, nationality, religion etc.

Today our ambitious team is multidisciplinary supporter of non-formal learning processes. Our portfolio includes various possibilities to develop skills and competences for individuals and teams.
