In-to-me-see coaching training - step 1
Start date: May 1, 2016,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
Coaching as a way to support the professional and personal development of people is becoming more and more known and used in different areas and fields of society. Increasing numbers of professionals, also in the youth and training sector, are expected to be a coach or to use coaching skills in their professional activities. Our research of the offered coaching training shows that the coaching trainings in the profit sector, like the co-active one, are very expensive and not really accessible for youth workers with a modest budget and that the ones offered in the Youth in Action context are usually a stand alone training on the basics and then there is no further follow-up possibilities for the participants. With this long term coaching training we want to offer a 2-step coaching training according to the quality standards of the profit coaching trainings that is accessible for youth workers, trainers and other people active in the Youth in Action context who want to learn professional coaching skills that can be used in all learning environments and areas and want to be supported in the implementation of their coaching skills by the trainers who will be their coaches in the in implementation phase. For the first time the step 2 training (seperate application) will also be open for youth workers who already have basic coaching skills through other courses and who want to deepen their learning and be supported in the implementation.The participants will be educators active in the Youth in Action field as a supporter of learning (volunteers, youth workers, youth leaders, project managers, trainers etc.) who feel the need to learn and/or develop coaching skills and competences. They see opportunities to use coaching in their job and they are willing to dig deep into coaching, experience coaching themselves as a client as well as coach other participants to practice and develop their coaching skills. The partner organisations will select those participants that are willing and able to participate this coaching training and will support the participants in using their coaching skills in the implementation phase after the training within the partner organisation and their educational activities to benefit from the learning of their participants. The general objective of this long term coaching training is to train educators (youth workers, trainers, coaches, teachers,... ) in a non-formal and experiential way in coaching skills and competences that they can implement to support the learning of the (young) people they educate.
