1. Online learning using MS Teams from September to December 2021. This will be every Tuesday morning and one full Friday each month - see the 'Course Dates' section.
2. A five-day Study Visit to Finland in 2022. The timing of this will based on a risk assessment and in line with the official travel advice.
Participants will be expected to undertake individual study and complete assignments outside of contact hours.
National and European contexts—the frameworks for youth work and non-formal learning; the opportunities and challenges of European youth mobility; and the history and development of EU programmes.
Principles and practice skills—non-formal learning theories, principles and practice; intercultural and experiential learning, and their relevance to European mobility projects.
Mobility project management—theory and practice of developing and implementing a European youth work mobility project.
The study visit is a compulsory and core element of the course. The feasibility of the Study Visit will be based on a risk assessment and in line with national travel guidelines. If is not feasible to organise it in 2022, we will look at adapting it online. If it is feasible, it will be an intensive visit and involve visits to youth work organisations to learn about how European youth mobility works in practice, and to analyse the impact of youth policies on different projects, on youth organisations and young people.
It will be assessed through a range of continuous assessment methods including essays, presentations, learning journals, project proposals, sample projects and group exercises. The assignments will be validated by Maynooth University.
The NUI Certificate is awarded at Level 8 on the Irish National Framework of Qualifications, and carries 20 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
The course fee is €350 per participant. This is co-financed by Erasmus+.

"Another thing I love about this course is that it has broken down the whole mobility process into manageable, bite-sized pieces that all fit together, weaving policy, intercultural learning, inclusion, personal development with good planning, risk assessments, anticipation of difficulties, recording, dissemination and reporting."
"I think the course made sense of European work for us as an organisation and fostered a sense of confidence about feeling European.”
"I am now the lead person for all our European projects i.e. supporting staff, and developing groups to enhance their knowledge of being active citizens - both national and European.”
"Having the weight of the formal Level 8 qualification has made it easier to argue for changes within my organisation.”
“It is a really good opportunity to develop skills in European youth work and also to bring them into the organisation.”
“After the course, I just found it really, really easy doing the applications...I’m not freaking out thinking ‘what do they mean by this?’ when doing the application.”
