Fourth Transnational meeting of WoW project
From 18th to 24th September 2016 the city of Plovdiv (Bulgaria) will host the international WOW training course for youth workers. The objectives of the course are to present the WOW toolkit with learning scenarios to wider number of youth trainers from the project countries and to increase their capacity to provide non-formal trainings. The WOW tool kit and the training course are aimed to develop youngsters’ skills for employability.
The learning scenarios developed for the WOW tool-kit use participatory methods, case-based learning and role-plays, which involve young trainees in interactive scenarios that simulate real-life situations they might face in the process of search for a job placement or in the work environment. This builds young people’s experience and raises their confidence for social and professional realization.
The training in Plovdiv will be carried out following intensive 5-days’ program and will be attended by 50 youth trainers. At a later stage of the project these youth trainers will organize and carry out cascading seminars with the WOW learning scenarios for young people in their own countries.
In addition to the courses and to educational workshops, the week in Plovdiv will be for Parners and for the 50 youth workers from five Nations an occasion to visit the city, with its historical places. Plovdiv is the second-lager city of Bulgaria, hosting many remains preserved from antiquity such as the ancient Plovdiv Roman theatre, Roman odeon, Roman aqueduct, Roman Stadium, the archaeological complex Eirene.
On September 22nd Bulgaria commemorates the Day of Independence.
The WOW project is carried out by partners from Italy, Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria and Chile with the financial support of the European Commission in the frames of Erasmus+ program, KA2 – Capacity building in the field of youth. The forthcoming training is organized by the WOW project coordinator Center for Creative Training Association under the auspices of the Municipality of Plovdiv.
