University Study Visit: Youth and Community Work in Scotland

Study Visit

21-27 May 2017 | Glasgow (and other locations across Scotland), United Kingdom

This study visit will be taking place in Scotland, UK. It will focus on Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and other education and training establishments involved in Community Learning and Development (CLD) and Youth Work training programmes.
The project is a follow-up to the successful 2015 University Study Visit in England. It intends to promote international work and intercultural competence within Higher Education and other institutions that offer programmes in youth and community work. Through linking youth and community work programmes to Erasmus+, European policy and the European Training Strategy, it aims towards recognition of Non-Formal Learning and greater professionalisation of youth workers and youth work training. It also links to the ‘Among Others’ project, held in co-operation between the Czech, Hungarian, Irish, Polish and UK National Agencies. Objectives: - To look at different ways that Scottish Community Learning and Development (CLD) courses, which includes youth and community work, incorporate international work and intercultural competence modules. - To share experiences from participants’ countries of how international work and intercultural competence are incorporated into their youth and community work courses - To create links between youth and community work/ CLD faculties and European programmes (particularly Erasmus+), European policy, and the European Youth Strategy. Programme The Study Visit programme will include visits to: - University of the West of Scotland (Hamilton Campus) - University of Dundee - Other Scottish Universities/HEIs offering youth work degrees - CLD Standards Council (youth work education regulatory body) - Youthlink Scotland (national agency for youth work) - Colleges and voluntary sector / local authority youth work training and practice providers Participant Profile We welcome applications from representatives of Higher Education Institutions and other training and education establishments working with youth work/Community Learning and Development.
