Training course D.E.A.L.

Training course D.E.A.L. will be held in the city of Worcester (United Kingdom) from 13 to 19 September 2013 for the duration of 7 days and will gather 30 participants (trainers, support staff, experts) from 14 different countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Montenegro, Italy, Estonia, FYR of Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, Poland, Malta, Turkey and the United Kingdom).

Employability is about having the capability to gain initial employment, maintain employment and obtain new employment if required. Inspired by the “Study on the impact of Non-Formal Education in youth organizations on young people’s employability” launched by the European Youth Forum on October 2012 (find the study here: http://issuu.com/yomag/docs/reportnfe_print) and bearing in mind the increase in unemployment in Europe, – according to statistics from Eurostat (September 2012) 5.520 million young people (under 25) were unemployed in the EU-27- the proposed project offers methods, tools and practices, based on the principles of non-formal education, that people involved with the youth and their employability can use and being inspired by them. The participants will be encouraged to build on the experiences gained from the project and adapt them according to the demanded standards back in their countries.

The aim of the project is to create a hub for employability and personal development tools, methods and practises to be used by those working with young people (in any capacity, formal, non-formal, vocational, etc.) to support them in pursing diverse career prospects. The aim will be achieved by means of a few objectives described below:
• To improve participants’ knowledge, skills and attitudes with regards to personal development of young people
• To provide space for sharing of experiences and good practices in the given topics
• To encourage the development of employability skills, as well as to foster the spirit of initiative, creativity and active participation of young people in society.
• To demonstrate how volunteering can be a major part in the development of a young person’s life, promote inclusion, encourage cross-community working and support global active citizenship
• To stimulate unemployed young people’s mobility and active participation in society
• to share information about and gain first-hand experience in various personal and professional development tools2 | This project has been funded with support from the European Commission and the British Council.

• To research the possibility for the implementation of a follow up consolidation seminar, that will facilitate the building upon the experience gained, after the period of practice that will be discussed, encouraged and agreed upon during the training course.

The methodology will be based on the principles of non-formal education such as experiential learning, cooperative learning, shared responsibility to name but a few and will be enriched with practical examples of projects that have brought about change and success in this area.

Training course will be held in the historical city of Worcester. It’s a small, yet very lively and colourful city that will offer a great venue for both daily activities and evening entertainment.

• Poland, Malta, Estonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia, Turkey – 2 pax,
