E-learning

Welcome to the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Essentials of Youth Work!

Are you curious about youth work? What is youth work and who is it for? How does it relate to young people’s lives? How is it done and by whom? How is it supported on local, national or European levels?

Become more familiar with the “basics” of youth work (concepts and definitions, forms, practices, approaches, objectives, actors at European and national levels), learn how youth work is supported, get inspired by examples of youth practices across Europe and reflect on the future of youth work in Europe!

With this MOOC we aim to:

  • Make youth work known to a wide audience and draw attention to its social value
  • Provide an overview of youth work practices and policies across Europe
  • Present current developments in this field, including at European level.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Become more familiar with the “basics” of youth work (concepts and definitions, forms, practices, approaches, objectives, actors at European and national levels)
  • Gain an overview of how youth work is supported (through policies and strategies, youth work research, education of youth workers, funding, etc.)
  • Get inspired by the diverse good practices existing in Europe on different aspects of youth work
  • Reflect on the future of youth work in Europe and on how to engage in youth work developments

Who is this MOOC for:

  • Students involved in youth work studies or learners involved in non-formal education processes related to youth work
  • Volunteer or paid youth workers
  • Youth work managers
  • Responsible persons for planning youth work at municipal level
  • Youth organisations and other youth platforms
  • Those involved in youth work policy making or in funding youth work
  • Youth workers’ education providers

Partnership between the Council of Europe and the European Commission in the field of youth (Others)

EU-Council of Europe youth partnership’s overall goal is to foster synergies between the priorities and programmes pursued by the two partner institutions in the youth field. It contributes to their respective work: for the EU – on implementing the aims of the EU Youth Strategy: engage, connect, empower; for the Council of Europe: on the 2020-2021 priorities of the youth sector: young people’s access to rights, youth participation and youth work, inclusive and peaceful societies, as well as the Council of Europe Youth Strategy 2030.

The partnership offers a platform for their cooperation and has a function of a “think tank” and a laboratory, gathering and producing knowledge, translating it for an effective use in youth policy and practice, developing and testing new approaches, considering traditional themes and innovative trends.
