The training activities are important to the achievement of the project objectives and intellectual outputs and will be a key feature of the dissemination process.
Critical to the project’s delivery is three essential training activities.
At the first training activity, the participants will understand the critical relationships that are essential to the realisation of the sociocultural learning model. The training will focus on approaches fostering the stronger participation of all young people and creating an intercultural approach. This will advice, guidance and mentoring to young people
At the second training activity, the participants will be trained on recording and empower informal learning realisation in events of Multilingualism Fests.
At the third training activity, the participants will be trained in applying the produced intellectual output of recognition and accreditation social events informal and non-formal learning
The added value of including learning, teaching and training activities in the project is that 100+ youth workers and young volunteers engaging in the proof of concept:
• Young People will have a pathway to positive outcomes such as further learning or employment;
• Young People will be more emotionally ready to apply their learning, skills and behaviours to further learning or work;
• Young People will have higher self-esteem and will be more optimistic about their future and opportunities;
• Young people will be more self-motivated to understand and address their personal, social and emotional barriers to success;
• Mentors will support sustained engagement, transition and progression through the creation of the events in Multilingualism Fests;
• Young People will gain vocationally relevant qualifications;
• Through participation in the programme, young people will build confidence.
The participants will be youth workers and young volunteer selected from all partners and associated partners organisations. They will be informed about the training possibilities and they will register for the training events to the project’s website. The maximum participants in each training event will be 30 divided in two groups. in case of exceeding number of participants, they will be a selection which guarantees the equal representation of all partners, gender, youth workers and young volunteers. The training material will be given to the trainees in advance in order to have the opportunity to familiarise with it. At the end of each training event, there will be an online discussion group for exchanging ideas and questions related to each training event
Young immigrants face numerous hurdles, and language is almost always the first and steepest. In order those participants to be supported, SLYMS project has foreseen to provide them linguistic support with the presence of linguistic mediators.
In order to validate the learning outcome participants in the training activities will receive a certificate of the undergone training issued by the lead partner which will organise the training.
Assessed learning outcomes, will be used for implementing learning portfolio using ECVET, as they are considered as a basis to identify whether what the learner has achieved in one learning setting or context is comparable to what s/he is expected to have achieved. In addition, the Youthpass will be used to describe the knowledge and skills gained as a result of participation in training activities.
