The project will gather a group of 21 participants that will come from EU Programme countries as it follows: Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain Denmark, Lithuania and the adhering country Turkey.
This training course will focus on sport as one of the main tools in non formal education. We will identify and define new methods and fields where sport can be used during the daily working life of every NGO or youth center. The Ready, Steady, Sport! training course will spotlight sport as an educational dimension, which plays a social, cultural and relaxation role.
Throughout the designed activities, the trainers will demonstrate the importance of Sport in informal, non formal and formal educational context.
The implemented activities will reveal that sport can be used to break stereotypes, to promote mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue and ease the process of social inclusion.
Most of the activities will result as future personal or organization’s projects.
This TC has following objectives:
- raise knowledge and gain new experiences and skills in sport and outdoor activities as tools
- clarify the challenges of Sport as a tool for education in regards to content and methodology
- to improve the intercultural, non formal and informal learning process resulting in a wider impact on the local community;
- create a network of professionals (youth leaders, social workers and trainers) who work with young people with fewer opportunities that could use in their work the developed tools,
- to start designing new Erasmus Plus projects raising awareness on personal, social and professional development during training
- to cultivate intercultural learning and work in international environment
- to encourage cultural exchange and sharing
- enable to use sport as an educational tool to be used in non-formal education contexts

- train them to become initiators and organizers of future sport activities
The Trainers will lead sessions based on spreading new methods about Sport that could be used within the following target groups: young with disabilities, migrants, minorities persons discriminated by gender and people that are coming from rural area.
During the main activities will be used a variety of methods: theoretical inputs, round table, Salto sessions, individual and group activities, group exercises, work on examples in a small group and case studies. These will help to reveal sports topic in a new, challenging way.
Expected result is that participants will identify ideas and methods of good practice, realizing follow-up activities in their own countries.
