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.
If you’ve any questions, contact Nora Furlong on our Client Services Team.
Here are the upcoming training events for the youth sector only. Check here for TCA opportunities in other sectors.
Profile of participants: Youth workers, Youth leaders, Youth project managers, Youth policy makers, Volunteering mentors and Youth coaches.
The target group is youth workers and youth organisations who work with young people around their mental health and are experienced in Erasmus+.
Themes and goals of the event: The aim of this training is to focus more closely and clearly on the European landscape of Youth Mental Health and well-being. Participants will engage with examples of the work being done across Europe and in particular the work happening with young people in Ireland and Finland. The other main focus will be on identifying the needs of young people around their mental health and the different tools needed to work with these young people. The focus will be around linking local to Europe on the current issues that impact young people and their mental health.
This is a seminar for artists, educators and cultural organisers involved with youth work and social issues. Discover how art can animate public spaces, design ways to use urban art in youth work, and look for strategic partnerships within EU programs.
The aim of the BiTriMulti course is to offer an international learning experience for practitioners active in the youth work field, enabling them to develop their competences in setting up quality youth exchange projects. Newcomers welcome!
Profile of participants: Youth workers, Youth leaders, Youth project managers, Youth coaches, anyone working with young people/ youth led media organisations.

Profile of participants: Youth workers, Youth project managers, Youth coaches, sport organisations. The target group is newcomer organisations and organisations experienced in Erasmus+ who work with young people with fewer opportunities.
Themes and goals of the event: The format has a dual purpose in that outdoor activities will be used during the Contact Making Seminar to support relationship building and cross-cultural communication; to break down barriers; to inspire leadership etc. It will also open up a space to explore how physical activities can be integrated into Youth Work, and Youth Exchanges in particular, to maximise the learning for the young people and to develop their skill set. Finally, we hope to demonstrate how the Learning Environment itself can enhance the overall success of a Youth Exchange.
The aim of this course is to give a strong and positive first experience of international youth projects to motivate the participants to use the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme.
