An evaluation meeting of the 2009 – 2012 Enter! project took place in April 2012, defined the achievements and shortcoming of the past three years project and provided input for the future.
A preparatory meeting for the LTTC (long-term training course) took place in September 2012, in Strasbourg, with the aim of defining a clearer framework to the LTTC, reviewing the current needs related to the LTTC, taking stock of already existing initiatives, defining the overall approach and developing an operational model for the planning and implementation of the LTTC. The meeting also supported the development of an informal network of potential partners for the LTTC.
The long-term training course that will prepare and support youth workers and youth leaders working with young people who face difficulties in exercising their social human rights will be launched at the end of 2012. Each participant will be asked to develop a concrete project with young people, based on specific quality criteria.
Other foreseen activities in 2012- 2014 are:
- A conference on local youth policies for social and economic inclusion, mainly focusing on policies for youth employment and social entrepreneurship of young people, in cooperation with local authorities
- National seminars on the role of youth policy and youth work for enhancing access to social rights for young people, which will take place in the member states of the Council of Europe
- Revision of the Portfolio for youth workers of the Council of Europe, on the basis of the experiences in the LTTC, with the aim of supporting the recognition of youth work and non-formal education
