Outdoor education and life skills
The course is aimed to train and improve the participants’ skills and competencies through creative indoor and outdoor activities focused on building environmental awareness and life skills. 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.
"Super training course, super trainers, super team. Thank you all for the great week we've spent together! All the activities can be adapted for training courses with adults in our target group, which can use their experiences of life, or their educational background. This motivates their learning, as it is known that adults’ learning is different than the pupils' one." (Rodica Zimbru, Romania)
“The outdoor activities involved me in the process of knowing the cities and their history in a very practical and complete way, active and effective. During the workshops, we have experienced the active way of teaching, build relationships, engage emotions, solved problems, been creative; we had to manage the time, negotiate and collaborate. Engagement in experiential learning it’s more interesting for both learners and teachers and gives more satisfaction.” (Katarzyna Sawicka, Poland)
“I improved my communication skills and gained more confidence in participating in team work. I also gained some new insights and ideas on how to use teaching and learning indoor and outdoor, to improve students' motivation and learning, as well as on how to improve cooperation between teachers of different subjects for greater students' motivation.” (Ivana Begović, Croatia)
“This course helped me a lot: developed my communication skills, I met people through different activities (outdoor and indoor), I gained new knowledge, I got new cultural experiences, I exchanged teaching experience. Now I am smarter and more confident in new challenges.” (Jane Tahka, Estonia)
"This course was a great experience for me! I learned a lot of interesting things and creative teaching methods. I felt like part of a family, because we worked in teams and every time there was another criterion for the formation of the teams; in this way we were able to discover each other and learning through cooperation. All the creative methods and techniques of teaching I will apply in my own work at the kindergarten. Also, I want to say “thank you” to our teachers Christina and Tim, those who have been with us for 7 days and taught us so many beautiful and memorable things!" (Andrada Ciochină, Romania)
