Are you interested in youth work? Would you like to develop your skills as facilitator? Are you ready to start your professional path as a trainer? 

With ODTIZ Institute and Arkhe we are launching “The Big Thing” project, to encourage participation of persons with disabilities in the field of youth work and non-formal education at the European level, in particular within the framework of Erasmus+ programmes (Training of Trainers – TOT).

With this project, each project partner will organise three dedicated periods of training in 2024:

  • One national training course in Belgium, lasting 16 days across 10 months
  • A week of training in Slovenia (2 days of travel + 5 days of training in July 2024)
  • A week of training in Spain (2 days of travel + 5 days of training in October 2024

What’s in it for you?

From the three training courses, the participants will gain professional experience and develop their ETS competencies as trainers, namely: successful cooperation in teams, understanding and facilitation of learning, Youthpass.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for participants:

  • With visual impairments
  • Who are between 18 and 30
  • Who are resident in Belgium
  • Who will be available to attend the full training cycle
