Start date: Jan 1, 2013,
The training course EC TOOL will bring together volunteers from the EFIL network to include them in the process of maximising the use and impact the ongoing learning tools that have been developed to enhance the quality of the European Citizenship (EC) content of intercultural (IC) exchanges, namely the short and long term pupil exchanges and the EVS/18+ programmes promoted by EFIL partners, and by other European youth organisations. The event will take place in Dworp (Belgium), involving 24 participants, 5 trainers and 1 support staff from 13 European countries. The project is a follow-up of a training course from Dec 2012, hence the trainers will be selected mainly from the group involved in a previous project. EFIL as the applicant organisation will co-ordinate the communication between the partners, and play the hosting role with strong involvement of the other Belgium-based partner. All promoters will co-shape the event, recruit and prepare participants and conduct dissemination and follow-up activities.During the 5-day training participants will explore the concept of EC in intercultural exchanges and build on the outcomes of the previous training on the topic. They will develop a shared approach for using the new EC ongoing learning tools in order to effectively support the learning of participants throughout the exchange programme, taking into consideration the different national and organisational realities and linking EC to the challenges faced by today’s young generation, such as youth unemployment, climate change and poverty and marginalisation. Moreover, they will provide feedback on the tools and their dissemination so far, and make a step further, setting the basis for both continuous evaluation and monitoring of the EC learning tools, and the involvement of other European youth organisations in this process.This will be done through interactive participatory methods, drawing from the competence existing among participants and their organisations.
