A bit of background
Who is the competence model for?

The Competence Model for Youth Workers to Work Internationally is useful for

  • • youth workers who are involved in international learning mobility projects;
  • • educational staff and trainers who organise international mobility projects; and
  • • organisations and institutions that develop training strategies for youth workers.

If you already have some experience in the field of youth work at a European and local level, you probably can relate to this competence model. To work in this environment requires a good understanding of learning processes, of youth work mechanisms and of the socio-political and socio-economic contexts in which youth work is carried out. This competence model is to be seen as a supplement to already established youth work education, training and resources. It does not attempt to define minimum or maximum performance levels of youth workers.
