Stairways To Trainers

Training Course

20-29 June 2021 | Viljandimaa, Estonia

SToT is a 10 days training course aiming at empowering and building up the competences of educational practitioners to design, facilitate and evaluate meaningful educational activities in youth work, also focusing on digital youth work.

It is getting harder and harder to attract youth to education. Educators need to be more efficient, more entertaining and more creative to interest youth. Due to this, it is important to introduce non-formal education methods to make education more appealing and easier to understand for youngsters and young adults.


  • turning business/formal trainers and teachers into non-formal professionals;
  • learning and non-formal education: approaches, conditions, models, factors, processes;
  • meeting the learning needs of the target group;
  • practical tools and methods for designing, facilitation and assessment of educational activities;
  • development and testing of own educational modules with/in front of a group;
  • practice in feedback, empathy, coaching and communication skills;
  • partnership-building and the development of follow-up activities.

The training course will be based on the specific needs of the participants and partner organisations, and will be highly participatory. Diversity, e.g. in the group of participants, will be considered as a resource for the exchange and transfer of competences, as well as special attention is paid to the intercultural dimension of the project. There will only be few frontal lectures, the main part of the training course will be delivered in the form of practical sessions implemented by the participants in a learning-by-doing fashion, using the full toolbox of non-formal education and experiential learning.

MTÜ Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (Youth NGO)

Created in 2011, Youth for Society is a non-governmental organization, which unites people of different age, social class, nation and interest but with the same goal: make the world of 21st century a better and friendlier to its inhabitants.
The main areas can be divided into four big groups: education, democracy, diversity and culture.
Youngsters believe that these aspects are not only closely connected with the majority of youth problems, but also provide a wide space for growth, innovational thinking and creativity, which can be accumulated firstly by youngsters.
Members of Youth for Society do not only organise projects and events, but also participate in local youth, student and school councils, because democracy begins not with election but from participation and responsibility.
The main moto of Youth for Society is “Good for society – good for us”. Youngsters create a better world not just in the name of faceless “everybody”, but in the name of their friends and family, in the name of the future generation.
