Have you ever thought about further developing your youth worker skills and increasing the quality of your projects?
" CONNECTION – Youth Worker on ESC" is a Training Course (TC) that aims to improve the quality of European Solidarity Corps (ESC) projects and support youth workers in the development of key skills involved in the construction, development, and evaluation of projects. It will be a unique opportunity to perform a self-assessment of skills, and to reinvent ourselves, to improve our competencies and the quality of the projects.
In a world of constant change, youth workers need to reinvent themselves to improve their work with young people.
At a time when the role of the youth worker is being discussed across Europe, where weaknesses and potential are being assessed, it is evident that their role alongside the youth is being valued.
With new challenges brought by the European Solidarity Corps Programme (ESC), a crucial factor will be the development of competences for youth workers who accompany and support all the activities in the ESC. To improve the quality of projects and learning processes, the development of competencies allows a better understanding of the program and its potentialities, which may have a greater impact on organizations, communities, participants, and agencies.
This course, based on the ETS competence model for youth workers to work internationally, provides a framework for the skills that youth workers have to develop in order to be able to monitor and develop their work with young people.
You can find in this model eight competence areas for youth workers, and in this model "it is essential that there needs to be a core framework of quality standards for youth work responsive to national contexts, including competence models for youth workers, and accreditation systems for prior experience and learning […]".
The course will provide you with opportunities to meet peer youth workers and discuss questions around self-assessment, the content of competencies, and ways you can develop them further on and increase the quality of your projects.
