Reinforcing links - Experiences of cooperation between the formal and non-formal sector in training youth workers
This brochure is a result of a small practice mapping exercise, which was carried out in the framework of European Training Strategy of the Youth in Action Programme (2007-2013).
This compilation of experiences is not about mapping or assessing training offers available for youth workers but serves to motivate the training providers in different educational sectors to cooperate in order to better equip youth workers with the competences needed to work with and for youth. With these ten examples of cooperation, we hope to inspire new projects undertaken between different sectors, in their environments and realities.
The ten examples might also inspire the use of Strategic Partnerships of Erasmus+ Youth in Action to generate European cross educational sector training offers for youth workers.
The renewed European Training Strategy will support the aims and objectives of Erasmus+ Youth in Action.
The cross educational sector cooperation in general and the Strategic Partnerships in particular are called to be one of the focuses of that strategy. Erasmus+ Youth in Action will increase the cross sector cooperation and will provide space for innovation and sharing the experiences.
