Did you know that Erasmus+ can fund you to take part in training events that help you prepare, apply for and run Youth in Action projects? These events are managed by an organisation called SALTO. Each year Léargas chooses a number of particularly relevant training events that people working in the Irish youth sector can be funded to attend.
To apply to go to a training event, click on the SALTO link after the listing. You will need a SALTO account to see the details. If you don’t have one, follow the on-screen instructions to set one up. Léargas will then get in touch with you to let you know if your application has been successful.
Here are the upcoming training events for the youth sector only. Check here for TCA opportunities in other sectors.

Join us for the first pilot training course based on and articulated around the ETS Competence Model for Youth Workers working internationally, developed in the context of European Training Strategy by SALTO.
This is an international training course that offers youth workers the opportunity to gain useful knowledge to inspire young people and support them in developing and implementing a Transnational Youth Initiative in cooperation with peers from other countries.
The overall aim of this training course is to support youth workers in their work with young people around topics such as identity, belonging and discrimination e.g. what forms it can take and how it impacts on young people. During the training, participants will gain a better understanding of how they can use the Erasmus+ programme to build international relationships and projects with young people that can support them in this work. The training will also allow space for participants to network and explore possible projects together.
The major aim of these training courses is to train trainers who have the competences and motivation to contribute to the improvement of the quality of projects within Erasmus+ Youth in Action.
This training course focuses on supporting the first steps of potential applicants into medium and large-scale Strategic Partnerships aiming at innovation in the youth field.
This training course aims to increase quality within youth exchanges. Based on previous exchanges, an international group of youth workers will focus on quality aspects and improve management competences.
