TRAYCE II is a long-term training course to support the implementation of the Council of Europe youth sector strategy 2030 by developing the competences of youth trainers and sustaining the quality of non-formal education and training activities.
The 2023-2024 edition of TRAYCE is the next step in the tradition of training of trainers organised by the Youth Department. It falls into a category of training courses that build generic non-formal education competences of trainers, over a longer period.
The training will support a group of dedicated young educators in developing and reflecting on their competences, skills and values to get more comfortable and equipped in working with and within the Council of Europe Youth Department. TRAYCE has been designed as a unique long-term training course that aims to increase the capacity of individuals, their youth organisations and support the general programme of activities of the Youth Department.
On a broader scale, TRAYCE should contribute to the development and recognition of non-formal education in Europe, to a renewal and diversification of the pool of young educators that the Youth Department works with, and to strengthen partnerships and connection with youth organisations in Europe.
TRAYCE supports the implementation of the Council of Europe youth sector strategy 2030 by developing the competences of youth trainers and sustaining the quality of non-formal education and training activities.
