The training course on essentials of non-formal education for facilitators will bring together young people who are trainers, facilitators or organisers of non-formal education activities and are likely to be involved in upcoming study sessions or activities supported by the European Youth Foundation. The training course will focus on developing a common understand and practical implications of the principles and approaches of intercultural non-formal education activities, particularly in the context of the Council of Europe’s Youth Department.
The content and methodology of the course are designed to make participants reflect on and experience non-formal education. It will build on experiential learning, individual reflection, and exchange of practices among participants by using the participatory methods of learning, such as working groups and facilitated discussions. The programme will include elements of sharing experiences and best practices of organising non-formal activities in the context of the Youth Department of the Council of Europe and outside to support peer-learning between participants.
The course will itself apply the quality standards in non-formal education produced by the Youth Department.
