Essentials of Non Formal Education Training Course in Strasbourg, France (Fully Funded)

About the Training course

The Youth Department of the Council of Europe works through strong partnerships with youth organisations and networks. This course is designed to support these partnerships by focusing on the principles of non-formal education that underpin activities organised in European Youth Centres or in member states of the Council of Europe through EYF (European Youth Foundation). The course will provide a space for youth leaders serving as facilitators to meet, share experiences, develop their skills in non-formal education and gain a common understanding of youth priorities and approaches.

The aim of the training course is to support organisers of study sessions and EYF-supported activities in implementing quality intercultural non-formal education activities with a multiplying effect building on standards of the Council of Europe youth sector. The course will itself apply the quality standards in non-formal education produced by the Youth Department.

The course will be implemented following three main steps:

1. Exploring non-formal education: facilitation, programme design, evaluation, learning theories and styles.

2. Applying Council of Europe tools and principles including the Manual for Facilitators and the quality standards in non-formal education.

3. Multiplying and sharing lessons learnt and best practices on non-formal education in youth activities.
