Für Interessierte aus Deutschland: Inge Linne,
This training course (TC) aims to enhance the capacity of teachers and youth workers in supporting learning process, social inclusion, empowerment and motivation of potential school drop-outs.
There are many reasons why some young people give up education and training prematurely. This might lead to several negative side-effects such as frustration, mistrust in themselves and in institutions, social exclusion, unemployment, poverty and poor health and in extreme cases criminality and radicalization.
To support the learning process of these youngsters efficiently and stimulate their motivation in education, both teachers and youth workers need new educational methods, strategies and approaches: more comprehensive and learner centred. These should help to create the right environment, in order to stimulate and facilitate young people in articulating their own hopes, goals, dreams and ways of learning which may help them to find their way in today’s society by means of education.
Non-formal methods, which are normally used in youth field but are still rare in schools, may provide this kind of educational environment. Furthermore, they may help young people to develop and acquire soft-skills and competences, useful to cope with the fast changes of the real world and to empower themselves.
Target groups are teachers and youth workers who work with 14 to 18 year old youngsters, who want to have an impact on potential school leavers to boost their learning curve - either inside or outside school- and who want to share and learn in an international group of like-minded. Participants can come from program countries.
General objective of this TC:
- enhance the capacity of youth workers and teachers in their support of the learning process, social inclusion, empowerment and motivation of potential school drop-outs.
- to gain new perspectives, understand and learn from the intercultural and European differences in relation to potential school drop-outs;
- to ensure a better recognition of the role of the main actors involved in the youngsters’ learning process (i.e. teachers, youth worker, educators, family etc.);
- to identify and share educational methods to prevent school drop-out and to raise young people’s motivation in education.
