A new ETS Competence Model for trainers!
Trainers are a core element when it comes to European youth work, particularly in the field of non-formal learning.
Therefore, Rita Bergstein (SALTO T&C RC) and Gisele Evrard-Markovic, developed a Competence Model targeting trainers, youth workers and youth leaders working on an international level. This tool, which is part of the European Training Strategy, aims to be consulted by trainers as well as institutions and organisations who plan non-formal education training activities.
The ETS Competence Model defines seven competence areas: Understanding and facilitating individual and group learning processes, learning to learn, designing educational programmes, cooperating successfully in teams, communicating meaningfully with others, intercultural competence and being civically engaged.
Trainers can begin entering upon the subject with 'Tools to get started'. This publication gathers information about the Competence Model such as its approach, structure, values, educational principles, and the glossary of terms. The ''Amended version'' complements this tool with the description of each competence area.
Experts Gisele Evrard-Markovic, Arturas Deltuva and Rita Bergstein also worked on a set of guidelines to be consulted when working with the Competence Model. The guidelines include: A card game 'Hold your Aces', 'Practical Tools and Methods' and Posters.
