The EU-CoE youth partnership will develop an online course on youth policy in 2017, pilot it in the end of 2017 and early 2018, and finalise it in 2018.
The aim of the online course is to support learners in gaining an overview of the scope, the actors, the components, the mechanisms and the history of youth policies in Europe.
The strategic objectives are:
- Promote the understanding of youth policies, in particular the know-how developed in the partnership between the European Union and the Council of Europe in the field of youth, among a wider audience
- Equip those involved in policy-making with information about the role of the European level in policy making
- Create spaces for mutual learning among those involved in youth policy
- Create a tool that can accompany other activities in the youth partnership as a knowledge-building tool, notably the seminars on youth policy.
The learning objectives are:
- Understand the “essentials” of youth policy (scope, actors, processes, components, mechanisms, history)
- Understand the main themes of youth policy, as tackled in different contexts across Europe
- Understand the roles of, and relations among those involved in youth policy
- Gain insights in cross-sectoral cooperation
- Gain insights related to youth policy development, implementation and evaluation
- Gain information about youth policies on the European level and the work of the European Union and of the Council of Europe.
The course will be conceived for specific target groups, as follows:
- Youth policy makers from different levels;
- Youth workers and youth leaders;
- Youth NGOs;
- Youth researchers.
However, the online course will be open for all those interested in attending it.
