Breaking Barriers is a training course for youth workers/youth work practitioners that work directly with young people with disabilities and are interested in engaging in Key Action 1 of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action Activities.

“One in seven people have some form of disability” (No Barriers, No Borders, A practical booklet for setting up international mixed-ability youth projects, SALTO). This is not reflected in participation of young people taking part in the Erasmus+ Programme.
Key Action 1 (KA1) of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme focuses on the learning mobility of individuals, both young people and youth workers/leaders:
Young people have the opportunity to participate in youth exchanges or to volunteer for a period up to one year in another country.
Youth workers can take part in training and networking activities abroad or spend some time in a youth organisation abroad in job shadowing.

This training course aims to

  •  Examine barriers to participation and to help groups and young people to feel confident in taking part in Erasmus+ projects.
  • Explore the areas of disability both Physical/Sensory and Intellectual in terms of supports for participation in International projects
  • Provide the opportunity for partnerships to be created with a view to implementing future projects through Erasmus+

Target Audience: Youth Workers/ Youth work practitioners working directly with young people with disability (physical/sensory/intellectual) and from organisations who are in a position to implement/lead these projects.

Duration: 7-11 November 2016 (including travel)
