Twenty-eight participants from 23 regions of the Russian Federation gathered from 3-10 October 2020 at the cultural-educational centre “Ethnomir” (Kaluga region) to finalise a year-long training course aimed at developing competences of youth trainers in non-formal education based on the standards of the Council of Europe to support the qualitative development of youth activities in the Russian Federation.
During the 12 months following the initial training seminar held in November 2019, the participants completed 9 e-learning modules, participated in online meetings and implemented their own youth training activities within the practice phase with educational support from the team of trainers.
At the evaluation seminar, participants assessed the progress of their competences as trainers in non-formal education and evaluated the learning outcomes from the practice phase, which was held in very specific conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Considerable time in the programme was devoted to discussion about the role and current challenges of non-formal education in youth work in the Russian Federation. Participants planned follow-up actions in the context of their professional development and how to bring to their organisations and communities the experience and knowledge they gained during the long-term training course.
