Light Tomorrow with Today
This training course is focused on Personal Development & Employability.
The instability of labour markets, rapid changes in the environment and growth in information all mean that the stability that former generations enjoyed no longer applies. ‘The reflexivity that is so characteristic of late modernity, where it is always the individual’s relationship to him- or herself that is the focal point of learning’ (Illeris, 2011, p. 405) means that the most crucial current requirement for education (the ability to be both reflexive and critical) transforms learning as knowledge acquisition.“ Youth workers and youth leaders are seen as the people who can provide a framework for the young people to know themselves better, to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses, to be honest with themselves about real wishes and desires for their future and be brave to take action and follow through. That is the reason why we are willing to propose a training course for youth workers and youth leaders to work on the competencies needed to support the personal development of young people individually and in groups – competencies of individual consultations and facilitation of group work dedicated to personal development.
