“Let’s get cross!” is a 7-day-lasting international expert seminar on how to enhance the impact of youth work and non-formal education through cross-sectorial co-operation. We target youth work providers, education providers (of any type) and municipalities. The expert meeting will take place from August 22nd to 29th (including travel days) of 2018 in Krompachy, eastern Slovakia. Funding is provided by the Slovak National Agency for ERASMUS+: Youth in Action, Key Action 1, Mobility of Youth Workers. The main aspiration of the expert seminar is to enhance the impact of youth work and non-formal education through cross-sectorial co-operation. Examples of this can be that a school co-operates with a youth center to provide extra-curricular activities outside of school or in the classroom. Or a university co-operates with a youth exchange organization to provide international opportunities to their students to acquire soft skills through nonformal education and learning mobilities. Or formal education providers integrate non-formal methods into their interventions. Or a municipality connects youth workers, education providers and employers to ensure young people acquire the competences and practical experiences required by the labour market. PROGRAMME ELEMENTS - sharing realities of youth work and education in our communities, regions and countries - discussing what competences are needed for the 21st century - ensuring digitalization, media literacy, creativity and entrepreneurship as transversal features - assessing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of different types of stakeholders in youth work and education, and matching win-win-alliances in the frame of cross-sectorial co-operation - sharing and identifying practices and formats in cross-sectorial co-operation in education and youth work - sharing tools and practices for the delivery of educational interventions and competence development - meet the other side: recommendations from employers, entrepreneurs, and labour market service - assessment and recognition of competences: how to? - action plan for follow-up, transfer, promotion and dissemination activities PROFILE OF PARTICIPANTS Each country, community or region should be represented by at least two experts: one representing a youth work / non-formal education provider, and the other one representing any other type of education provider (eg kindergardens, primary schools, college, high schools, universities, VET, adult education, freetime education, alternative education, informal education) or municipalities (the chapter in charge of youth and/or education). The participating experts must be aged 18+ and be residents in the country of the nominating partner organisation. The experts should be fluent in english, and be willing and committed to work hard (about 9 hours per day at least). The experts should furthermore commit to carry out agreed preparatory tasks and be willing to follow-up on the seminar via active youth work and/or educational work, ideally in co-operation with their sending/partner organisation. It is also important to underline that this expert seminar will have strong traits of a training course in youth work and will be based on the toolbox of non-formal education.
