Impact of non-formal education in youth employability – University of Bath

Fuente: Microsoft Europe

If you were an employer looking for a young person to recruit, would you rather hire someone with impeccable academic credentials or someone who you knew can communicate effectively, has good organizational skills, can take decisions independently, bring the best from others to achieve common goals?

hire-e1312896167909‘Soft skills’ such as these are increasingly important in the labour market. These skills can be developed within the classroom, but also through other activities –in what is normally referred to as non-formal education. One of the main providers of non-formal education for young people are youth organizations. A recent study by the University of Bath and ICF-GHK, commissioned by the European Youth Forum, collected data from over 1,300 young people and 200 youth organizations in over 40 European countries. It also benefitted from discussions with employers and guidance services. The study revealed that:

 
• Communication skills, team-working skills, adaptability and flexibility, self-confidence and intercultural skills are amongst those skills developed to a greater extent in youth organisations. These are also some of the ‘soft skills’ most demanded by employers;

• Sustained involvement with youth organizations pays-off: those young people we surveyed who reported higher levels of involvement in the youth organisations’ activities (in terms of frequency and duration) also report higher levels of skills development;

• Likewise, those who have participated in non-formal education activities in youth organisations outside their home country, even for short periods, report higher levels of skills development, in particular in relation to language, intercultural and leadership skills (and the extent to which participation in youth activities abroad was seen to help across the full range of soft skills that we analysed was shockingly clear);

Critically, our research also suggests that young people are not fully aware of how to best present the skills they acquired in young organizations –which may require greater action by youth organizations, career-guidance services, employment agencies and other agencies. Young people also often mention their involvement in youth organisations too late in the application process.

Finally, getting a job is not all about your skills. Involvement with youth organisations helped in other important aspects that help to land into a job too. A large proportion of our sample of young people to develop networks and connections, or ‘social capital’, that can aid in obtaining information about employment opportunities as well as in securing employment.

The economic crisis and its disproportionate impact on young people all around Europe make it all the more important that we invest in our future young people.

Maternity and Family centre Krucek

EI number 2009-CZ-24

daycare

We are looking for 2 volunteers for long term EVS (12 months).

Activities will start on 1st of February 2014 and 1st of April 2014.

Our websites www.mckrucek.wz.cz , http://krucek.blogspot.cz/you can find some photos from our actions in part “fotogalerie”. Unfortunatelly the page is only in Czech language, some parts from our EVS volunteers are in English – look at “projekty”è “Mladez v akci”.

Maternity and family centre Krůček Svitavy, o.s. is international, educational, commune and multigenerational centre for families with small children. Every day we offer pleasant and friendly environment with wide variety of activities and services for the families- from exercise for pregnant women, through baby clubs for mothers with babies, creative activities, musical and moving classes for toddlers, English for pre-school children, educational courses for parents, to weekend actions for public. It’s a place of meeting for families with children. It offers services and activities, which have goal to support healthy, active and working family and prevention of social outcast of family with children (from birth to pre-school age). Services and activities allow families to spend free time meaningfully, support them both in the activity and outside, which prevents their social isolation and strengthens the family role in the society.

Goal of Maternity centre Krůček is to help preventing social outcast and isolation of mothers and families with small children, prepare pregnant women for their role as a mother, pass on knowledge about raising children and psychology of family life and to support bringing up to responsible manhood.

Children (mostly between 0 and 6 years, but also their older siblings) in Maternity centre Krůček find new friends, improving their emotional and social intelligence and learn many new abilities, which help in their future adaptation in nursery schools and primary schools. Also, Maternity centre Krůček helps them and their parents to live the time from baby to pre-school age more meaningfully and gives more joy to this time.

Our centers activities can be separated to several areas:

Regular activities during whole week -playroom, creative English for children or adults, creative, moving and musician workshops, logopedics, ecological activities, suburbian camps, trips (mostly for families with children around 1-3 years old)

Babysitting (mostly for children between 1-4 years old)

Irregular actions for families, actions during the holiday and weekends (games in the park, presentations, activities with partners…)

Education of mothers and parents (effective parentship, first aid, gender courses, business and family-how to connect it, how to learn with children, PC courses…)

Other activities (psychological and lactation consulting)

Proposed activities for EVS volunteers:

We offer an open and friendly enviroment in a small collective of the Maternity and family centre. We are used to invite two volunteers for one year. We allready had volunteers from Russia, France, Spain and Georgia. The volunteer can learn cooperation that is important for the Maternity and family centre run. He/she will learn how to offer our service to the families with children and also how to use the feedback to develop our activities. The volunteer will be motivated to be active and to bring his/her own ideas and projects to make our service better. We think that the volunteer can gain new knowledge and abilities that can be utilized in organizing actions for family groups. Parents are mainly 25-40 years old.  Age of children is from 0 to 6 years old mostly.

  1. Regular workshops for mothers and children– their preparation, working out and realization of the program, helping the  activation workers. The volunteer will be present on the workshops that is once a week. The workshop’s theme is Playing with English for mothers and children. The volunteer can prepare the workshop or can help families and children to participate on workshop activities. We expect that the volunteer’s competences for working with families and children will grow. That will be reached due to the transparency of the theory and the practice. Every workshop is for 10 mathers with children, more or less.
  2.  Monthly program preparation, participation on Maternity centres’ campaigsn in the Czech Republic (e.g. about active fatherhood, natural childbirth).
  3. Babysitting-lot of parents need to go to work, when children are not 2 years old and in CR we have problem with vacancies in kindergartens. So we decided to offer babysitting for their small children. Volunteers cooperate with us and help with babysitting too.
  4. Preparation of the bigger actions for public – we arrange at least 1 bigger action for public per 2 months. These actions are usually on weekends and are prepared and realizated by the whole team including volunteers. The actions are for example: lampion parade, carnival or st. Nicolas celebration. The volunteer will have oportunity to realize own ideas and we will teach him/her how to organize these actions. About 200 people come to this kind of action.
  5. Comunication with parents, children – comunication skills increasing, gaining the information about the families in the Czech Republic, their social situation, about the multicultural questions, enviromentalism, etc.
  6. It is possible to cooperate with another organisations in object Fabrika, e. g. library or Salvia, it workes with disabled people (rentiers and mentaly handicapped people). It should be about 10 % of whole service here. It depends on volunteers will.
  7. Czech lessons-volunteer will have possibility to learn Czech language with a very good and professional teacher. Volunteer´s speaking Czech soon is for us very important.

Working hours: From Monday to Thursday  9-12 a. m. and  2-6 p. m. Friday 9-12 p. m.

The working hours are not the same every day, this is only for ilustration. Working hours are made in cooperation between volunteer, team and needs of our activities.

Summary of the Project:

We expect to work with a mixed group of people with fewer opportunities and without, in order to give them a global vision about what Europe is and how it can help them on their way. We believe that non-formal education does have a strong influence to change difficult situations and this is why we come up with the idea of this project. We want to inspire our participants to reach new approaches in life through art, music and performances in an international environment.

The project will offer the opportunity to discuss and debate several important issues that normally do not exist in the formal systems of education. It will give the chance for participants from EU countries for individual reflection about how music and media can bring a group together creating a strong connection among participants thanks to the activities and workshops we will create for them.

The methods used during the training will create the situation of common learning and exchange and will provide tools to improve the quality of the youth work in the home countries of participants. We ask our future potential partners to believe in the topic and to send us motivated participants linked with music and art performance.
