Show Synopsis    
Title Expert Group for Mapping Educational Paths of Youth Workers and Gathering Knowledge on Youth Work 
Description The mapping contributes to a better understanding and sharing information on the ways in which youth workers are educated and trained and the implications for the youth work quality, on the one hand, and to identifying examples and trends, if sufficient data allows such analysis, with regards to employment or volunteering and the social benefits youth workers bring. An expert group has outlined a more detailed scope of the mapping in accordance with the expectations of the partner institutions. Some elements of the mapping include:

competences the youth workers are expected to have,
educational offers addressed to youth workers in the framework of vocational or tertiary education,
non-formal educational paths available for youth leaders and youth workers and their status,
career paths/work opportunities open to youth workers depending on their educational achievements.
