If you are willing to learn and improve your competences in facilitation, this is the course you are looking for.
We have detected a lack of experience and / or knowledge by trainers, technicians and multipliers of the program on facilitation techniques.
Many of them don’t know exactly the difference between facilitation and training. Facilitation is certainly a great tool in non-formal education that promotes active participation, peer learning and continuous reflection as qualitative elements in any project.
Many trainers and / or program facilitators have a lack of techniques, methods, attitudes ... to facilitate program activities. This course is a basic introduction to the "art” of facilitation techniques, resources, emotions and attitudes.
The main aim of this TC is to offer to newcomers in the facilitation work within the Erasmus+ Youth program the basic knowledge to acquire skills, tools and resources to facilitate activities.
- The main objective of the training is to increase the quality of facilitation in all activities undertaken within the framework of Erasmus + Youth program.
- Providing basic skills in group facilitation process.
- Discuss and implement facilitation techniques
- Provide tools and resources to facilitate activities within the Erasmus+ Youth program.
- Enhancing cooperation and exchange of experiences and best practices among the course participants.
The methodology of the TC is based in the active participation, self-reflection and self-directed learning. We will offer space to reinforce the cooperation among the participants and the exchange of ideas, creativity, resources…
The main contents of the TC will be:
