European STEP Online Training – February 15th to 17th 2021

Presentation of the short-term joint staff training: 

The European STEP training, organised by the European University Foundation (EUF), with the support of Animafac and the European STEP partners, is meant to enhance student engagement recognition and promote the implementation of measures of recognition in Europe. It is organised for youth workers, administrative staff members and academics and aims at uniting diverse participants so that they work together to achieve the goals. 

Objectives of the training : 

  • Build a network of qualified trainers on the matter of student engagement, student engagement skills and recognition; 
  • Reflect on the recognition of student engagement in a European perspective, in a multicultural and multi-stakeholder context; 
  • Train for the implementation of recognition measures in higher education. 
  • Train for the identification and development of engagement skills; 
  • Evaluate and appropriate the tools Europass, Youthpass and ECVET.

Trained staff will be able to help universities and implement new measures of recognition. Trained youth workers will train their peers about the gains of engagement recognition. A qualified network of trainers on this matter will emerge and be able to keep on training other people. 


Program of the training : 

The three-day training will consist of the following modules:

Day 1 – Skills Gained Through Student Engagement

Day 2 – Advocating for recognition of student engagement

Day 3 – Become an Ambassador of Student Engagement

To have more information on the program you can find attached the detailed agenda.

NB: Active teaching methods will be used by the trainers. Participants will be actively involved in the whole process of the training in order to meet the objectives related to the learning provided during all of the modules. The idea being to allow them, from the first day of the activity, to be actors of the training, and to become aware of the stakes of this one.

Practical information:

→ The training will take place between the 15th and 17th of February 2021 online (3 days).

Linguistic support:

The working language will be English spoken and mastered by all the participants of the training. The people targeted by the training are used to working in an intercultural and European context, so this will be a necessary prerequisite for any participation.
