Organising national and international ERYICA Trainings
(with the support of ERYICA)
If you wish to organise an ERYICA Training, please contact the ERYICA Secretariat 3 months before the planned dates.
Trainings can be organised centrally if the host country provides practical support on the spot (accommodation, training rooms, material...). ERYICA will set the dates together with you, assist with finding trainers and provide the programme and support.
If you wish to organise a national ERYICA Training but there is no certified trainer in your country, contact the ERYICA Secretariat for support and finding trainers.
As a rule of thumb for the number of trainers, an 8:1 participant to trainer ratio should be applied.
ERYICA Trainings have to cover at least the hours foreseen in the curriculum/manual.
The recommended minimum remuneration of trainers is € 250/trainer/day plus coverage of travel and lodging, depending on qualifications and experience. In certain cases it may be that the fee is negotiated locally. If you face difficulties with covering this amount, please contact ERYICA.
The Basic Rules of ERYICA Training Course Implementation
- It is not allowed to organise an ERYICA training without having ERYICA accredited trainersrunning it.
- Training courses and the materials connected to them are in possession of ERYICA and can only be used by ERYICA partners or in agreement with those.
- Members can use the training materials in case if ERYICA is visible (logo and acknowledgment). The translations of materials and their design are allowed as long as copyright is respected, the ERYICA logo is used and ERYICA is informed about it beforehand.
- The organisation in charge of a training course is compelled to communicate the names of the participants and the ERYICA Secretariat is to issue the certificates with the minimum signatures of an ERYICA representative and trainers of that training course. Upon a request the signatures on the certificates might be the ones of an ERYICA representative, trainers and the National Members.
- In case a national partner is using only a part of a training course, it is still possible to have ERYICA logo because the modules are based on the differences in national needs. Whoever is organising a national training with an ERYICA content must send a short English summary of its content to the ERYICA Secretariat and then they will receive the ERYICA logo for the training.
- Trainings that include only parts of ERYICA material might not be called an ERYICA Training and ERYICA will not issue certificates.
- National trainings that cover all areas of ERYICA Trainings and the minimum time set by ERYICA within the modules can apply for certificates. An English summary of the contents including the envisaged hours for each session has to be submitted to ERYICA for approval.
- By the form provided by ERYICA, a short evaluation material after the course has to be compulsorily sent together with the names of the participants to ERYICA for the certification. Additional details (e.g. ID number, social security number) can be included in the certificate by request of the organisers and data provided by them.
- A training course must be pre-approved by ERYICA and the national member.
- It is possible that during an ERYICA training organisers invite some participants from countries that are not ERYICA members but this must be clarified beforehand and the permission and support must be asked from ERYICA.
- No ERYICA training or part of a training can be delivered in a non-ERYICA-member country, unless it is organised by ERYICA itself. This implies that trainers from countries that left the ERYICA network cannot deliver trainings in their home countries but they can still deliver them in other ERYICA-member ones.
ERYICA Trainings referred to hereafter as Training or YIntro include the basic YIntro and additional modules such as the Digital YIntro
ERYICA trainings are run by accredited ERYICA trainers (basic or additional module)
YIntro trainings need the approval of ERYICA and when held on national level of the respective ERYICA National Member.
Trainers have to make sure and be transparent that the trainees have reached the envisaged learning outcomes for obtaining an ERYICA certificate:
- Trainees will only get an ERYICA certificate if they followed at least 80% of the course. If a trainee missed more than 20% of being present, ERYICA can issue a separate paper stating which sessions were attended, but no certificate will be issued.
- Trainers have to follow up on the self evaluation forms completed during the course in an assessment talk at the end of the course and judge from there if trainees have reached the envisaged learning outcomes.
The organisers/trainers have to give a complete list of trained persons to the ERYICA Secretariat for monitoring of ERYICA trainings in Europe.
A representative of ERYICA might be invited or might attend a training for monitoring purposes.
TRAINING OF TRAINERS
ERYICA training courses can be delivered by trainers who underwent a Training of Trainers course. These can be organised in two ways:
by ERYICA (usually after the finalisation of a training manual)
hosted by ERYICA members and organised in cooperation with ERYICA
If you are interested in co-organising and hosting a Training of Trainers, contact the ERYICA Secretariat.
Trainers for YIntro have to be from youth information work background and have successfully completed a Training of Trainers course on YIntro or be accredited by the ERYICA Training Task Force (e.g. former MBTC Trainers). If you are an MBTC Trainer and would like to be accredited for becoming a YIntro Trainer, please contact the ERYICA Secretariat using the Contact button below.
Certified YIntro trainers can apply for getting the manual of a selection of other courses and can run those as well. Trainers that are certified for one specific training course can only run that course.
All ERYICA trainers are requested to maintain a profile on SHEryica.
