YOCOMO - the 3rd ETS learning experience for youth workers: a systemic approach to competence development

02.03.20 bis 08.03.20
Training, international
Jurmala, Latvia


If …

  • you are a youth worker and you already have experience with international mobilities, but want to develop your competences further,
  • you are interested to experience working with the ETS competence model for youth workers,
  • you are motivated to explore the meanings of ‘systemic’ and ‘approach to competence development’ in your work and the potential impact,
  • you are curious, open and ready to look at your youth work practice from a different perspective,
  • you are looking for a great opportunity to meet other colleagues and share, exchange, support and evolve.

Then YOCOMO 3 might be the right learning experience for you!



YOCOMO 3 intends to create a space for you, as a youth worker, to reflect and exchange on your practice using the ETS competence model for youth workers. In addition to the above, you will also look at the potential impact the relation between ‘systems’ and ‘competence development’ can have not only on yourself, but also on the systems that you work with and belong to (your organisation, young people, local community, youth work in your country, etc.).

As participant, you will explore:

  • The ETS competence model for youth workers - its content, origins and intentions
  • The interdependence between competence areas within the ETS model
  • Who owns the competences? A systemic approach to competence development
  • Competence development and the impact on our systems
  • The reflective practice: from self-awareness to system awareness
  • Developing our own competence development and transformation plan



In addition to what is indicated above and if you are interested to apply, it is important that you are involved in designing, implementing and evaluating the pedagogical activities organised by your structure. You will be asked to direct your own learning and in particular, have the ability to self-assess your competences (attitudes, skills, knowledge and behaviours). All participants must have a structure that supports them (NGO, school, municipality, youth centre, etc.). A fairly good knowledge English is necessary since it is the working language.
