The World Esperanto Youth Organisation (TEJO) in cooperation with the Council of Europe (CoE) are organizing the training course (TC) ‘Diverse, but Equal: Educating Young People on the Intersectional Approach’. The training course will give the opportunity to 20 active non-formal education (NFE) trainers and educators from Council of Europe member states to be trained in the topic of intersectionality and tackling different forms of discrimination in their everyday work with young people. Our participants will have the chance through the training course:
- To introduce trainers to the intersectional approach when they design and deliver educational activities with young people in the context of NFE.
- To develop our participants’ capacity on the human rights based approach as trainers and educators, with a specific focus on intersectionality and combating multiple forms of discrimination.
- To equip these trainers with the necessary tools in order to disseminate the outcomes of the international activity throughout their personal or professional journey as trainers.
Additionally, during this training course we aim that the participants produce two intellectual/practical outputs:
- A training manual/toolkit for NFE trainers, educators and youth workers introducing them to the topic of the intersectional approach for educational activities by/with and for young people, especially those who come from vulnerable groups.
- A series of short videos by the TC participants on the concept of intersectionality and tackling multiple forms of discrimination while working with young people in order to raise awareness on these topics among youth organisations, educational and institutional stakeholders and young people in general.
The training course will take place between Tuesday 29th of March (arrival day) until Monday 4th of April 2022 (departure day) in Prague, Czech Republic.
We are looking for 3 trainers/facilitators, with no age limit, residents of one of the CoE member states:
- With wide experience in Non-Formal Education and facilitating activities with and for young people;
- With a certain level of experience in social inclusion topics, ideally when it comes to detecting/combating discrimination and equal rights of young people;
- With the ability to work either in English or Esperanto or both.
The 3 trainers will be expected to:
- Prepare the training course’s content together with the TEJO project team;
- Design and prepare any materials they would need to perform the training;
- Deliver the sessions during the training course;
- Provide a report on the sessions of the training course to the project team, after the completion of the training course, for the general reporting purposes.
There are 5 working days, with 6-6,5 hours of delivery per day to be distributed between the trainers. The trainers will be supported by a TEJO officer and a TEJO volunteer throughout the process. However, they will be the primary responsibles for the content, designing it and delivering it and they will have the freedom to adapt it to the needs of the participants and their own capabilities.
All the costs for accommodation, meals and traveling will be covered by the project. Additionally, each trainer will receive 500 euros for the services provided, after the TC and after they finalize their reporting deliverables of the TC.
You can apply by sending us an email expressing your motivation to facilitate the training course and your experience in the topics mentioned above to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 31st of January 2022.
Diversity and equal opportunities are very important to TEJO. We especially ask women, non-binary or transgender people to apply.
