Activities to disseminate useful content to improve participants’ knowledge, skills and competencies
Training courses are projects established under the European Erasmus+ Programme addressed to young people, youth workers, youth workers, youth workers, educators working with young people and leaders of youth organisations. They are a valuable tool to disseminate good practices among international organisations, thus promoting mutual learning.
The aim of these projects is to improve the quality of the work of youth organisations and to promote international mobility and intercultural learning for young people. They last up to a maximum of 10 days and, unlike the Youth Exchanges, the Training Courses have no age limit, so those over 30 years old can participate.
Training Courses also differ from Youth Exchanges in the activities carried out. During the exchanges, a large part of the time is devoted to socialising and intercultural learning, whereas in the training courses the time is mainly spent on activities to disseminate useful content to improve the knowledge, skills and competences of the participants. All planned activities are based on the principles of non-formal education. For this reason, during the course, participants share and implement teaching and learning techniques to stimulate the active collaboration of young people.
These projects are also a moment of international meeting and, therefore, a good way to meet new European organisations actively participating in the Erasmus+ programme and to establish relationships for future collaborations.
At Brújula Intercultural Association, we act as a sending and hosting organisation for training courses. Through the website and our social networks we inform about our opportunities.
Training courses are meetings planned in the framework of the European Programme Erasmus Plus. They are a valuable tool for disseminating good practices among international organisations, thus promoting mutual learning.
The training courses are FULLY FINANCED by the European Commission which covers the costs of food, accommodation and has a budget (which varies depending on the distance) for the reimbursement of travel expenses.
