Training Course on Essentials of Non-Formal Education 2024
The Youth Department has established a set of quality standards in non-formal education activities that relate to the function of intercultural non-formal activities with young people in promoting the right to human rights education, democratic citizenship and youth participation, peace-building and intercultural dialogue. The quality standards concern context, partners, people, methods and different stages of the activity or project.
The quality of youth activities depends on the competences, ability, motivation and capacity of the organisers and the facilitators to plan and deliver a programme and methodology in line with those criteria.
To support these young organisers and facilitators, different tools and training opportunities have been made available by the Council of Europe. In 2022 and in 2023, training courses were organised for facilitators and organisers of study sessions and EYF-supported activities.
The training course in 2024 will build on these previous experiences and lessons learnt and take into account current developments in the youth sector of the Council of Europe. It aims to increase the capacities of youth organisations to carry out quality international intercultural non-formal educational activities with a multiplying effect for their members, and enabling young people to actively uphold, defend, promote and benefit from the Council of Europe’s core values of human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
