-To reflect on individual and group learning within a Training course
-To get personal experience with summarizing the "learning" over a 1 week´s training course to be able to apply and explain the use of the Youth Pass to the EVS volunteers

Description of the tool

At the end of the 1.Training day, explain a "need" for the reflection on the personal learning, by showing a symbol of the FEET -we learn in steps - formally/non-formally and informally. Then give examples (also the funny ones - e.g.that I learnt that there is always a hot soup for lunch in Hungary) and ask people to answer following question:
"What have YOU learnt today?" participants are asked to do it by writing (in English)or drawing on paper ideally in shape of a Feet number 1. Explain that each training day they get their previous "feet" back and continue with similar question. You CAN give the question a little focus like: "What have you learnt from the others-group of participants?or what have you learnt about yourself?"
At the end of the Training - produce a Certificate for everybody with Official part:written Aims and Objectives BUT with an EMPTY space for their Learning outcomes: about half a page of the A4. Give participants time to go through their learning-steps-feet from previous days and ask them to make a summary of what they think are the most important learning outcomes for them! Let them write it on their own and sign it at the end.
