A Long-Term Training Course for Youth Workers on Promoting Access to Social Rights for All Young People will be initiated by the Council of Europe at the beginning of 2013. In order to prepare the training course, the Youth Department is organising a preparatory seminar at the European Youth Centre Strasbourg, France from 18-20 September 2012.
The project is the next phase of ENTER!, a project focused on youth work and youth policy responses to problems of social exclusion of young people, particularly those living in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and affected by discrimination, violence and generally speaking exclusion. The first phase of the project included a long-term training course for youth workers and also the preparation of a youth policy recommendation on access to social rights.
This preparatory seminar will bring together a variety of stakeholders, partners and actors in the field of youth policy and youth work, such as youth organisations, representatives of local and national institutions and authorities, youth researchers, youth workers and trainers. The seminar will be organised jointly by the Youth Department and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe.
The preparatory seminar objectives are:
- To review current needs related to the access of young people to social rights
- To review the results of the first phase of the Enter! project, in particular from the evaluation of the LTTC, and draw conclusions for the future steps
- To identify and learn from youth work initiatives and projects related to enhancing access to social rights for young people, in view of further defining the training course
- To define the course main features, namely approaches and types of interventions, expected outcomes, educational approaches, main support measures for the course, profile of participants, promotion and visibility, and evaluation features
- To associate a variety of partners, both from the civil society and from local and national authorities, with the course and define their roles therein
