The course aims to train and improve the participants’ skills and competencies through non-formal methods of teaching and educational activities. The course is appropriate for teachers at any level, of any subject head teachers, school inspectors, school counsellors, decision makers in the field of education, trainers. The course is aimed for adult education, therefore it focuses on the development of the participants related competencies and skills (e.g. teaching/training related skills, soft skills etc.)
Each course is unique, as it is adapted to the novelties in education, to the background & level of education the participants teach/train at (in case the participants come from the education area) and/or to the background of the participants (in case the participants come from the labour market or business area). It is also possible that more topics will be combined in each session, in order to create a course adapted to the participants' needs and to the objectives of the projects the participants receive the grant from. In this respect, the title above is a course topic ( the final course title will include the key words mentioned in this title, but it can be more complex).
The course is organized in Assen, the Netherlands, for 7 days, starting on Sunday afternoon and ending on next Saturday, at the lunch time. At request, people having a grant for 5 days can join only the first 5 days of the course, from Sunday afternoon to the next Thursday, at the lunch time.
For logistic and organisational reasons, all the participants will be accommodated in the same hotel chosen by the course organiser, the rooms will be booked by the course organiser and the participants will pay the equivalent amount by using the grant for individual costs received from their National Agencies. The hotel offers the possibility to choose single, double or triple rooms. However, a double or triple rooms can be chosen only if other participants are willing to share double or triple rooms.
All the participants in the training course will have breakfast and lunches together, in the same hotel where they are accommodated and where also the conference rooms are located.
The course fee is the standard amount of 70 Eur per person per day. For organisational costs directly linked with the implementation of mobility activities, as well as monitoring and support during mobility each participant has to pay a fee of 65 Euro for the whole course, amount that will be paid by using the grant received from the NAs for organisational costs.
The course fee and the organisational costs are to be paid by bank transfer, before the course starts, to a limit date established by the course organiser.
The accommodation costs can be paid before the course starts (by bank transfer, in the hotel bank account, based on an invoice received from the hotel) or directly at the hotel reception, at the participants' arrival.
Feedback participants:
"The Dutch experience from Assen was not only unique, but also very captivating. The activities developed by Quarter Mediation outside of the meeting room with the cooperation of other organization and institutions such as a museum, a library, an archive, a school, the discovering and the way of applying Quarter Mediation's own methods of non-formal education, had a positive impact to my professional development. The creativity, innovation, multiculturalism, the interaction between the participants in the workshops organized indoor and outdoor, represented common elements of the educative activities I joined. The entire amount of knowledge and good practice examples I came back home with, will act as a catalyst for the realization of non-formal education whose beneficiary should be the school community I come from. " (Mirela Dodenciu, PhD, Romania)
“With this course, I have learnt different non-formal methods which are used in different outdoor and indoor learning environment. I will find ways to adapt these methods into our institution's curriculum while teaching different subjects. I improved my foreign language fluency, gained more self-confidence.” (Günindi Rahmi, Turkey)
“It has been a fruitful experience because I have learnt about new ways of improving my relationship with my colleagues, new problem-solving approaches, the importance of collaboration and team work for successful management, how important each idea can be and what it can generate further on to meet your objectives, how I can manage an urgent situation without pressing the others, how I can apply the non-formal methods in class and make my lessons more attractive and efficient, how to integrate technology in a natural way in my class.” (Ramona Faur, Romania)
“At this course I have been coordinated and guided without feeling under pressure. Personally I improved the communication skills in English and also the team work, my social skills, IT skills, negotiation skills, public speaking and leadership skills. I also became aware that every opinion is equally important and can be used as a better way to reach the goals.” (Patricia Pisano, Portugal)
