Training Course – The Power of Communication

About the Project

With this LTTC «The Power of Communication», we’d like to tackle the competence of youth workers and trainers to build and to facilitate the meaningful communication process with different stakeholders involved in educational process.

Objectives of the Project

  • to discuss and come to common understanding of what efficient communication is and its role in educational process;
  • to discover how communication is related to human rights and human dignity;
  • to develop skills in the competence area “communicating meaningfully with others”;
  • to develop skills in intercultural communication in diverse environments and with learners from different backgrounds;
  • to reflect on the specifics in communication process in different dimensions such as educator – young people, educator-educator, educator-institution (organisation) and come up with strategies for fostering efficient communication process;
  • to reflect on the effects of non-verbal communication, and how it’s linked with the personal attitudes to become conscious about personal body language when working in multicultural environment.

The Structure of the LTTC
