Costs: 

Participation fee

€30

Erasmus+ is a co-funded project, and so to ensure all the quality conditions for an impactful training are met we ask that each participant contributes €30. It demonstrates commitment to the training and we find it is a small amount to pay to show value to the course. The participation fee can be discussed case by case if some participants experience difficult financial situation.

We expect you to pay the fee in cash during the project. This is an additional contribution to the funding we receive and is not waivered by spending less than your travel amount.

Accommodation and food

This project is funded by Erasmus + (KA1) of European Union. According to its financial rules some costs are fully covered some not. Please see below for details:

– Accommodation, food and refreshments – 100% covered

Participants from European Union countries are all expected to bring their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with them. This is needed for access to health care in the UK. To find out more about accessing one of these cards please follow this link:

http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=559. Please note that citizens from outside the EU will not be eligible for EHIC and must take private insurance, which is not reimbursable by the project.

In addition to this, Consilium DT highly suggests that participants arrange separate Travel Insurance, including medical cover. Any costs relating to health, loss of possessions, missing travel connections etc. must be covered by the participant. Please kindly provide us with the details of your insurance at least a week before the project starts.

Really Including Inclusion

A first stage training course for youth workers to equip them with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to be able to ensure the inclusion of young people from backgrounds of fewer opportunities into their projects and activities.

Are you interested in learning how to support disadvantaged young people from background of fewer opportunities get involved in local and international youth projects?

Consilium Development and Training together with BeDiverse is delivering a first stage training course for youth workers (anyone who works with young people aged 13-30, in a paid, voluntary, full or part-time position) to equip them with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to be able to ensure the inclusion of young people who are underrepresented and from backgrounds of fewer opportunities into their projects and activities. This will be achieved through successive implementation of the following project objectives:

– training participants in the key areas related to preparation and delivery of local and international youth projects to ensure inclusion and accessibility

– exchanging best practices and useful tools contributing to successful inclusion of people facing barriers in projects

– fostering European cooperation in the youth field and supporting the development of
sustainable partnerships for the future joint projects between partner promoters

– discovering the potential of Erasmus+ Programme in creating accessible quality and value-based learning mobilities for young people and youth workers.

The training course is strongly based on experiential learning (learning by doing) and non-formal education, with adequate time allocated for debriefing and reflection throughout the whole program. It will take place over one week, 6 days of training with one afternoon ‘free’. It will be an intense programme, so applicants must be available for the entire duration.

– Be open to meeting new people from different countries and spending an intense period of time together, motivated and dedicated to learn and contribute to the training course

– Be willing and ready to share the outcomes of the training course with their young people, their local region and further if possible, by undertaking certain dissemination activities

– Be at least 18 years old

– Have at least medium level of English comprehension (to be able to participate in discussion and in training activities)
