trainingSTAR - Social Inclusion Weekend Vaasa 2019

ESN Finland - Social Inclusion Weekend Vaasa 2019- Event

Social Inclusion Weekend Vaasa 2019 was a national training event with a comprehensive focus on the cause of Social Inclusion. The idea was to train and motivate Local Social Inclusion Coordinators with the help of an agenda consisting of team building activities, presentations, workshops and a social programme. The social programme of the event also had a subtext of training and educating - the participants had the opportunity to attend a Dinner in the Dark, in order to get a first hand-experience of participating in a typical Social Inclusion Event. The side idea of the training, besides the strong focus on Social Inclusion, was to create an event inspired by non formal-education and international Eduk8-events. Another part of the Eduk8-idea was also noticeable in the fact that the team of trainers consisted of two experienced trainers (part of the Eduk8-pool) and three new trainers who had all just completed Eduk8 Starter. Thanks to a successful funding and an ESAA-grant, the participants enjoyed the event without a participation fee.

trainingSTAR - Education Training 2019

ESN Romania - Education Training 2019- Event

The Education Training was a 2 day intensive learning-oriented event, organised for ESN volunteers. More specifically it was a non-formal learning event, with an agenda built around the concept of education in ESN, bringing together information about Erasmus+ mobility opportunities, collaboration with HEIs, stakeholders and how to interact with them. The second part of the event focused on soft skills development, but building around the same core idea. The set of workshops aimed to improve soft skills that are considered to be helpful when communicating with different stakeholders when promoting mobility. The workshops were chosen and designed to help participants to actively use the information received to implement the hard skills gained. The focal point was education and, particularly, the role ESN has in this field. The aim of the training was to develop both hard and soft skills, to discuss, to simulate real life cases and to take advantage of a perfect networking opportunity.
