Methodology and Structure of the course The course is designed to give participants the opportunity to experience, and reflect upon, being a trainee and a trainer. It is designed as a mutual learning process where participants can learn from each other and from the experiences they encounter during the course. Due to its long-term character, the course is designed in such a way that the three seminars are only ONE of the aspects shaping the learning process of participants. Acting as a responsible self-directed learner is a key feature of ToT. ATTENTION!!! Participants have to be recruited by their National Agencies for the Youth in Action programme who will cover the expenses related to the participation in the course (travel, board and lodging, practical project, etc.). Some NAs reserved the places exclusiv for trainers of their national trainer pools, other NAs also select trainers not being member of the pools. Please check your chance to be selected with your NA before investing time to fill the application form. 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 EVS volunteers, etc. • To have the potential and need to develop training competences and act after the course as a trainer for European Youth in Action projects and/or for training courses organised by the National Agencies of the Youth in Action programme. • 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.
