The Powder of Non Formal Education (online)

Training Course

25 February - 16 March 2021 | Netherlands

Improving the impact of Non Formal Education (NFE), principles and methods in creating empowerment opportunities for young people as real actors of the society (from local to Europe).

Why this Training Course?

- To stimulate the participants to feel and reflect about the power of non-formal education (NFE) by experimenting different kind of non-formal educational methods.
- To discover and debate the European strategy of NFE.
- To fight against the growing consuming approaches towards young people in the non-formal education field.
- To explore meanings, roles and complementarities of different educational approaches and methods (formal, non-formal, informal).
- To reconsider daily youth work practices.
- To understand the principles of program building and NFE within Erasmus + Youth in Action.

How it will be done?

The ‘Powder of NFE’ is an exciting format which combines online with offline learning processes. Online moments support directly the individual and groups processes while developing Non formal Educational methodology, tailored towards your own educational interests and based upon your (professional) identified needs.

To have profound impact, we need to go further than classical running of training courses, online or offline. The participants are encouraged to really build their own training and learning process, supported by a fine tuned pedagogical programme and with a concrete offline material ‘tool kit’, which is sent by postal service previously to every participant.

The pedagogical process

A fundamental flow during the training is based upon:
- Experiencing: different educational settings, different non formal education methods (role play...)
- Reflecting: on the methods and its impacts, on the power and limits of NFE, on building a pedagogical process...
- Transferring: to the own reality of participants, in order to improve ways of working with young people
- Sharing: different perceptions, current situations and experiences.
- Developing: based upon own pedagogical interests and professional identified needs, each participant will –as part of formed interest groups- develop a tailored methodology answering a local concrete need. This building will be supported by an offline toolbox: ‘The Powder Box’ (more info in the attached Infopack).

Participants should be at least 18 years old and should have a good level of English.
