YOCOMO Systemic 2021
YOCOMO Systemic is a learning experience that explores the potential of looking at competence development not only from an individual perspective, but also from a systemic perspective.
‘YOCOMO Systemic’ is a learning experience that explores the potential of looking at competence development not only from an individual perspective, but also from a systemic perspective. In this case the system is not a bureaucratic or institutional one; it is rather about having a ‘systemic view’ on the whole field of your practice as a youth worker.
YOCOMO Systemic intends to create a space for you, as a youth worker, to reflect and exchange on your practice using the ETS competence model for youth workers. You will also look at the potential impact the relation between a ‘systemic view’ and ‘competence development’ can have not only on yourself, but also on the systems that you work with and belong to (your organisation, young people, local community, youth work in your country, etc.).
As participant, you will explore:
The ETS competence model for youth workers - its content, origins and intentions.
How to zoom out and see your youth work context as a living system?
What is your role and function in your youth work system?
What does it mean to approach the competence development from a systemic point of view?
What is the potential of the ETS competence model in your youth work context?
How to do a systemic self-assessment and plan your development as a youth worker?
The general approach is based on the principles of non-formal learning and the course strongly supports reflection and self-directed learning.
