Competence for All

The training activity took place
in Sinaia, Romania
organised by Romanian NA
23rd - 28th February 2015

Aims & objectives

The main aim is to enhance participants‘ knowledge about the process and outcomes of non formal learning and about assessing competences of young people with fewer opportunities and using different assessment tools in inclusive youth work.

Objectives:

• To develop competence for supporting learning of young people with fewer opportunities
• To learn how to support and assess competences of young people
• To get familiar with different recognition tools, methods and approaches
• To exchange good practices about how these practices can influence the pathways (incl. Employability) of inclusion target groups

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The Training course “Competences for All!” is an international Training Course that gathered together this Romanian 2015 edition 21 youth workers, social workers, teachers, people working in a non formal way with youngsters and active in inclusion field. 10 European countries were represented in the TC.

Oana Mosoiu (trainer, Romania), Henk Persyn (trainer, Slovenia/Belgium-FL), Simona Molari (trainer, Italy). The course is organized with support of SLATO T&C.

Training methods used & main activities

The course is in the frame of the Erasmus+ run with a non-formal learning approach. This means an interactive discovery of possibilities where participants had to reflect and check a lot on own personal (working) situation.
It means learning by doing, sharing of experience and feelings, taking action arising from reflection and intercultural communication.
Participants have been encouraged and trained to explore the field of inclusion and non-formal learning by using different and interactive methods (like workshops, presentations, group work, reflection, role play, discussions,...).

Fun, serious work but most off all, challenges, and sometimes a step out of personal “safe zone”.

Furthermore a so called "field visit" is an essential part of the programme: a visit to few different projects in the local community, or when not possible, the hosting of few guests from different local organisations working on recognition tools for NFE.

Outcomes of the activity

A big impact in their daily work practice, using different recognition tools. Participants even if they had a big experience in youth work, they have less experience in how recognition works, what does it mean, which tools are exiting, how to work on the competences, what is the meaning of non-formal education and why should we recognize it.
