Training Course „G.O.T. – GamE+s of Trainers“
One more project took place this summer in beautiful Grafenbach! From 23rd of July until 1st of August participants came together for this training course to learn how to use gamification and how to facilitate their own programs and design them.
The youth workers mobility ˝GamE+s Of Trainers˝ was created in the context of youth work and European nonprofit organisations in which we want to develop a multidimensional approach to the role of a facilitator/trainer, according to the needs expressed for this kind of professionals. The idea was that facilitators and trainers have a fundamental role and need specific skills in order to make any kind of youth project they are going to facilitate a successful one.
This includes specific skills, careful preparation of the logistics in a project or workshop, understanding group dynamics and the needs of any group, managing teams of young people, managing international teams and to be able to create a space for personal and professional growth and learning.
The goal of this project was to pass on this knowledge and level up the skills of 25 youth workers from 8 countries. We gave the opportunity to youth workers to taking the first steps of becoming facilitators, improving the recognition of non-formal education and quality of youth projects. This was all be achieved through using methods of non-formal education and experiential learning, supported and guided by experienced trainers.
