Short description

The training course 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 (organised in one of the European Youth Centres) or international activities and annual work plans supported by the European Youth Foundation (EYF). These are international activities that are organised in partnership with youth organisations. The training course will support these partnerships through a focus on the principles of non-formal education underlying the activities, provide a space to meet and exchange experiences and to learn about the priorities and approaches of the Youth Sector of the Council of Europe.

The content and methodology of the course 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.
