The activities of the programme in four languages
The final programme was made up of 10 initial assessment and 148 detailed development activities. Each of them focus on two emphasised competence areas. One part of the materials was compiled for the participants, while the other part provides a guide to support the trainers’ work. A well-elaborated coding system on these documents gives users a quick overview of which content areas the activities are interlocked with and who are addressed by particular documents.
All the materials for trainers start with a table which names the activity in question, is coded and gives basic information about planning. The table identifies the competences at the centre, the purposes and the expected results of development, the types of activities (individual, in pairs, in groups), the duration and tools, plus materials and toolkits available. The overview also offers a concise description of the activity with a reference denoting which other one can replace it within the programme.
Short descriptions are always followed by highlighting the development role of the activities. It supports the trainers in how to interpret the what’s and whys for participants and how their skills can be strengthened by the activities. This section is followed by a step-by-step description of the activities. Finally, the guide offers trainers advice of what to do with the products produced during work.
Four complex activities form part of the complete toolkit of the programme which can be used in final assessment to show what development levels the participants have reached in each competence area.
