About the training course

The idea of the project was driven by the fact that young people in general and the ones with fewer opportunities especially, often lack necessary competences and experiences in order to enter or stay in labour market. At the same time, non-formal education that takes place in the frame of youth work provides very valuable learning experiences for young people. Also, there are different tools developed in the frame of the European youth programme to support the recognition and transfer of these learning experiences into young people’s further studies or labour market, Youthpass being the main instrument in this respect.

Focus of the training course (TC) is to empower youth workers for being able to work on youth empowerment in order to combat youth unemployment and exclusion.

The core activity of the project is 9 days long training course. It will be organised in the youth hostel in Split, from 10th till 18th November 2015.
