Are you a young trainer with a passion for youth participation?
UNESCO has designed a one-day training product to train UNESCO and UN staff, to meaningfully engage with youth in all areas of their work, with plans to adjust it to national policymakers and civil society organisations working on youth-focused issues.
Now UNESCO is looking to create a pool of young trainers with a passion for youth engagement to deliver this training in their regions and home countries.
What is involved for selected youth trainers
Step 1 – Online train-the-trainer programme
- Youth trainers will participate in a train-the-trainer programme in August or September 2020. The train-the-trainer programme will take place online and will include three online development sessions. Each session will be 2.5 hrs long and will include:
- Session 1: Training design – how to design a learning journey
- Session 2: Meaningful youth engagement – an introduction to the training content
- Session 3: Training delivery and facilitation -skills and tools
- Youth trainers will then have the opportunity to participate in online training for UNESCO staff to observe and co-deliver the training in practice.
* This is a professional development opportunity.
Step 2 – Join the pool of youth trainers
- After completing the train-the-trainer programme, youth trainers will join a roster and will be contacted when there is an opportunity to deliver the training in their region or home country.
* Depending on the availability of budget, youth trainers will be contracted as paid consultants when delivering training in their region or home country.
