Training of Trainers for European Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps Projects 2022/2023

Training Course

23 September 2022 - 24 June 2023 | Hungary, Germany and, Portugal

The major aim of this long-term training course is to train trainers who have the competences and the motivation to contribute to the improvement of the quality of projects within the Erasmus+ Youth and Solidarity Corps Programmes of the European Union.

This Training of Trainers (ToT) lasts ca. one year and consists of:

  • three residential seminars
  • an international training project you design and run with some other participants
  • ongoing e-learning
  • ongoing mentoring with one of the course trainers as your mentor
  • learning commitments


The dates for the three residential seminars are:

  • Seminar 1: Hungary, 23 September - 02 October 2022
  • Seminar 2: Germany, 13 - 22 January 2023
  • Seminar 3: Portugal, 17 - 24 June 2023


This course requires a considerable time investment from the participants: in total you should plan at least 55 days:

  • 28 seminar days (including travel)
  • 12 days overall for the training project (preparatory work, prep meeting and the course itself)
  • 15 days (on average 1-2 days per month) for following the personal learning commitments, the online work, peer learning, mentor talks etc.

Within this ToT course participants have the chance to further develop their competences as a trainer. In line with the European Training Strategy in the frame of Erasmus+ Youth programme the ToT course considers the following competences to be essential when working as a non-formal education trainer working internationally:

  • The competence to understand and facilitate individual and group learning processes.
  • The competence to design educational programmes.
  • The competence to direct one´s own learning (Learning to Learn)
  • The competence to co-operate successfully in teams.
  • The competence to communicate meaningfully with others.
  • Intercultural competence.
  • Being civically engaged.


Participants enter the ToT course with various levels of prior experience as trainer as well as competences developed - consequently, the learning needs of participants are different. The educational approach implemented in the ToT course intends to allow for these different learning needs to be identified and pursued. At the core of this process is the competence of the participant to direct their own learning. The group as a source for peer learning and the trainers as facilitators of these learning processes are essential pillars of this approach.

Participants are expected:

  • To have been already involved at least three times in a team of trainers designing, implementing and evaluating a training course in the framework of Non-Formal Education.
  • To have had international experience in the youth work field with a function of responsibility (not only as a participant) – organising international youth projects, leading a youth exchange, mentoring volunteers, etc.
  • To have the potential and need to develop training competences and act after the course as a trainer for European Erasmus+ Youth or Solidarity Corps projects and/or for training courses organised by the National Agencies of the programmes.
  • To show initiative and willingness to self-direct their own learning process.
  • To be prepared to reflect on and question their own beliefs and approaches as trainers.
  • To be able to run training courses in English.

Participating countries: Austria, Belgium-FL, Belgium-FR, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Sweden.
