The COMANITY Training Programme combines self-directed learning supporting youth workers and volunteers to learn at their own pace, through ‘scaffolding’, with collaborative learning methods (in online groups and with the COMANITY team) to:
- generate their own learning content, using their practice experiences
- share their experiences and learning
- apply it in practice, through on-line Assignments and in ‘Action Learning workshops’
- assess their progress, through self-assessment, external assessment from the COMANITY Training team and through peer review and ‘benchlearning’ activities, culminating in a final assessment and accreditation of their learning outcomes.
The training programme is aligned with the Community Animateur Competence Framework so trainees can acquire the skills they need to become successful Community Animateurs.
