Developing Online Youth Information Trainings
Start date: Oct 3, 2016, End date: Oct 2, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project partners believe that quality youth information and counselling services can only be achieved and ensured via trained professionals. The increasing emphasis on quality and quality assurance processes at different policy-making levels inspires ERYICA’s commitment to continue supporting youth (information) workers in acquiring the skills and competences needed to better meet the needs and expectations of young people.In this spirit, the DOYIT project will develop an e-learning platform and feed it with updated and revised training curricula in the field of youth information and counselling. The specific objectives include increasing the outreach and efficacy of youth information training through the adaptation and integration of 4 training courses to this online learning platform, familiarising youth information workers, youth workers and trainers with these new training and learning methodologies using online environments and defining quality assessment tools and evaluation methodologies for online courses in the youth work sector.The activities of the project include not only the development and enrichment of the e-learning platform but the creation of a kit for the organisation of e-learning activities, a quality, evaluation and assessment guide, as well as a training of trainers. Furthermore, two of the training courses will be translated to two additional languages, to further increase outreach. Pilot training courses will ensure the finetuning of the results and at the same time the beginning of dissemination and the exploitation of project results.All the 9 project partners from Luxembourg, Finland, Croatia, Spain, Lithuania, Portugal, Estonia and Ireland will input their expertise and experience for the benefit of the project development. The participants directly involved in the project activities are trainers, training course developers, lecturers and academics in the field of youth work, as well as youth information workers who will be piloting the new content and further ameliorate them through their feedback. By fostering synergies between the formal and non-formal education sectors, the planned developments will provide increased and effective training outreach via new training methods to make youth information workers meet the expectations related to their profession; connect knowledge, know-how and skills with outreach, efficacy and quality; and increase the flexibility and openness of training delivery, among others. In the long run, these developments will make training more accessible for the applicant’s 28-country network and considerably contribute to the quality development of youth information and counselling services throughout Europe.
