The Hungarian,Turkish and Belgian-FR “Erasmus+” National Agencies together with SALTO Participation organise a long-term training course on coaching for young people’s development, active participation and social inclusion, including 2 residential TCs.
After a successful first edition of this LTTC in 2014-2015 , the organising NAs and SALTO Participation will implement it again this year.
The organizers strongly believe that coaching is needed to support E+YiA beneficiaries. Coaching can be used for the personal and professional development of young people, for fostering their active participation in daily life and social inclusion. We will organise this activity based on the methods and techniques widely applied in current professional coaching. Youth workers could benefit from professional coaching that would allow them to integrate its approaches in their daily work to better respond to the needs of young people.
STRUCTURE OF THE LTTC
This is a long-term project that will include two residential training courses and a period in between of practice.
During the first TC, to be hosted by the Hungarian NA, participants will be introduced to the basics of coaching as a method that they can apply in their daily work to improve the quality of the guidance that they offer to young people in their personal and professional development.
After the first TC participants will go back to their organisations and apply the new acquired coaching approach during the practice phase. Practice phase (in between the two residential TCs): consists of peer e-coaching sessions. Every participant chooses a (partner) buddy for her/himself and practise coaching based on real challenges and in a real coaching process at least 4 times, 45-60 minutes each time.
The second residential TC, organised in Turkey, will give participants the opportunity to reflect on their coaching experiences and their own development. The challenges that they encountered will be shared, allowing them to reflect on and become aware of their learning outcomes and competences acquired throughout the whole LTTC.
Place and time of the LTTC
The first TC will take place in Budapest, Hungary from 11 to 16 April 2016 (including arrival and departure days).
The second TC will be organised in Turkey, autumn 2016 (city and dates to be confirmed).
