In 2016, EBU will repeat the European training course on youth employability held in 2015, and can open it to all the EBU member countries. As a reminder, this course is supported by the “Rights, Equality and Citizenship” Programme (REC) of the European Union.
The course should be held in Tirrenia, Italy, from 28 to 30 April, pending approval of EBU’s REC16 work programme by the European Commission. The nearest international airport is Pisa Galilei, 25-minutes away by car from the venue.
As in 2015, the course will be led by Vanessa Cascio. She is an experienced trainer in the field of the evaluation of competences and graduated in “lifelong learning processes and education” at the university of Bologna (Italy). Vanessa is also very experienced in training young visually impaired people using accessible non-formal and active methods. This year a half-day training session on body language, non-verbal communication and presentational skills will also be conducted by Jasper Ebels, who participated in the 2015 training course.
EBU will cover participants’ accommodation and subsistence costs as follows:
- 3 nights from 27 to 30 April.
- Dinner on 27 April; breakfasts, lunches and dinners on 28 and 29 April; breakfast and lunch on 30 April.
Please note that travel costs will not be reimbursed by EBU.
For the sake of saving precious time, you can already start to identify participants with the following profile:
- English-speaking blind or partially-sighted persons from any of the EBU member countries.
- Maximum age: 30.
- Willing to improve their employability skills and attitudes. Preferably, they should be non-employed youngsters, seeking for their first occupation as the course has been designed for this specific target. It is also the opportunity for them to take part in international activities for the first time.
- Participants must also be willing to share the knowledge they will acquire during this training course with others as they will facilitate further trainings.
Indeed, in turn, participants and their organizations will be responsible for organizing by 31 December 2016 at least two half-day training sessions per participant having attended the European training course on the same topic, each with a different group of 10 young visually impaired persons. As an example, if two participants from your organisation attend the European training course, then your organization and these two participants will be responsible for organising four training sessions back in their country. Training sessions can be face-to-face or on-line.
It is essential that this requirement is made clear to future participants.
Each EBU member will be given the possibility to register up to two participants or one participant and a guide. Places will be limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.
