Training methods used & main activities

Learning by doing methodology. Using the non-formal methods to boost the experience of all the active volunteers and youth workers participants in order to empower them to lead and support the participants of international projects.

Outcomes of the activity

This project is mainly aimed to develop basic and transversal skills, such as entrepreneurship, digital skills and multilingualism in all fields of education and training, using innovative and student – centred pedagogical approaches an developing appropriate assessment and certification methods, based on learning outcomes.
So we intend to focus on the key competencies which provide better groundwork towards our goals.

During the TC we will use the structural maieutic approach, that is a process of voluntary education: the individual, impulsed by the trainers, discovers his own potentialities and after, he will be able to mature them in a communicative situation witch valorizes the direct relations inside the group, as this is a process of leaning which promotes self awareness in youth people.

Non-formal learning is a vital and fundamental educational methodology that can facilitate skills acquisition of young people with fewer opportunities. These skills include social and civic competencies, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, cultural awareness and expression, etc. This, in turn, enables them to actively participate in civic and cultural life and increase their employability by giving them confidence and transversal skills.
