Training methods used & main activities

A bunch of methods have been used to support the non-formal learning process, helping participants to get to know each other, break the ice, share project ideas and understand the essential quality aspects of Small Scale Partnerships for Inclsuion within the frame of Erasmus+ Youth. Thematic workshops and structured group discussion have been used (e.g. case szenarios, expert groups) same as visualization methods for project managment, the application process or presentations to understand the concept of SSP. Guest speakers have been involved to share their good practices and we had individual and group consultations, so participants could go home with a personal action plan.

Outcomes of the activity

The training course provided substantial knowledge and deepened understanding about KA2 Small scale partnerships on Inclusion in the field of Youth. Participants expressed number of learning outcomes linked to networking, preparation of the project proposal and importance of various quality criteria. Based on the evaluation participants, 95% of them identified that course met their expectation quite well or extremely well.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I was one of the two trainers in this project. My task was to prepare, implement, evaluate and report this training. This was done hand in hand with my co-trainer colleague and in regular consultation with the officers for SALTO Inclusion & Diversity and the involved NAs.

I worked on this training for 3 days as a full time trainer.
