The aim of “Learning in EVS” training course is to improve the quality of learning support provided to EVS volunteers by increasing the competencies of the EVS accredited organizations to better plan, deliver and evaluate the learning.

 

After this training course participants will be able to:

  • are able to work in English;

The training course “Learning in EVS” and its methodology are inspired by the values and principles of non-formal learning. It is based on the learning theories of Humanistic school of education and on the Youthpass process. It is very much practice oriented and gives to the participants tangible skills. This also means that the responsibility to make the training course effective is shared together with all participants. Each participant will not be only an active learner responsible for his/her own learning, but will also be encouraged to support the learning of others.
