One of the most important project’s activity – training course just came to an end.

Training course took place between 9thand 16thof March 2018 in Głuchołazy (Poland). In this activity took part 21 youth leaders from different NGO’s and institutions from partner countries: Bulgaria, Cyprus and Poland.

The purpose of the training was to familiarize its participants with non-formal education methods about health. First days were dedicated to principles and features of non-formal education. After these days, it was time for training in health modules. Those lessons are the innovative method learning about health, developed on cooperation of 3 partner organizations at the international level.

Upon completion of the training, the organizations participating in the training have received the NEC (Non formal Education Center)certificate, which means that they have learnt about non-formal education methods and they know how to use modules. As they gained NEC status, participants are obligated to implement at least 1 module among the young people with whom it works and to complete the survey before and after the workshops.

The questionnaire will be used in the study of the knowledge of the concept of non-formal education and the validity and usability of modules.
