Training & Cooperation Activities

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 Carmel Walsh on our Client Services Team.

Due to COVID-19 preventative measures, some TCAs have been postponed until further notice. Please see the news item on our homepage for more information. 

Upcoming Training

Critical Thinking and Media Literacy Online Seminars
Online (Finland), 12 January 2021 – 16 February 2021

Aims: These six seminars aim at re-adjusting youth (information) workers’ thinking about media literacy and critical thinking and to build youth information workers’ capacity to provide young people with skills to critically explore media and information available to them, to help them gain resilience in the face of the ambiguous and changing media landscapes of the current era, and to support young people in practicing their active citizenship, participate in democratic processes and make decisions even in ambivalent media and information contexts.

Target Group: The target group of the activity is youth information workers and youth work professionals in Europe who can benefit from the understanding of the topic and who can transfer the information to the young people they meet through their work.
