The YOWOMO2.0 description of competences has been used both as a starting and a reference point for various training scenarios to explore its applicability. The application scope covers one day hands-on trainings for professionals, international exchange- and training activities, as well as the systematic curriculum reform of a study programme at a University. Some of the scenarios just reached the status of a concept, others were run as a pilot and some of them are going to be implemented further in the near future.
The trainings scenarios showed that the YOWOMO2.0 framework includes competences that can be acquired, that are relevant for the profession, and that challenge the vocational education and training in youth work.
In the following you get a teaser of each scenario. For more details such as background, needs adressed, targets groups, structure, methods, and assessment please click on the the picture of the report or the “more” at the end of each teaser.

There are 3 youth centres in Konya. They serve a wide variety of young people including high school and university students, depending on their location in the city. For example, two of them are located very close to Selçuk University. Therefore, the youth centres in the city employ different type of staff depending on the needs of the young people they serve.
On the other hand, there are not specific departments at the universities in Turkey for particularly training youth staff. This fact shows the probability of the necessity to develop curriculum for different topics related to the youth work.
The participants of the training are the youth workers who work in youth centres in Konya city. The length of the training will be 5 days and 8 hours per day. (more)
