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 students, 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.
To help you, here is a document that aims at offering practical guidelines in the context of the above-mentioned objectives and develop training activities for engaged Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) staff, who will be the European STEP local ambassadors and will ensure the sustainable continuation of the project’s mission.
